A trough of low pressure is settling in along the Gulf coast. This started the onshore flow pattern.
Deep moisture remains overhead, so showers and storms will continue to be numerous. Storms will start early in the coastal counties.
Storms will develop in inland areas during the day. Highs will stay in the upper 80s in the coastal areas to around 90 inland.
Monday will have west-southwest winds. Storms will again start early near the coast, then will develop inland during the day.

The moisture overhead will be slightly lower than Sunday. So there may be a little more sun and slightly less coverage of showers and storms through the day.
The trough settles into northern Florida by mid-week keeping the southwesterly wind pattern. Plenty of moisture will be across the area for the work week, so rain chances will be higher than normal. Storms will start each day early at the coast.
There is a possibility that low pressure could develop along this trough by Wednesday or Thursday in the Gulf. If it does, winds will pick up mid-week out of the south.
For the work week, expect scattered to numerous showers and thunderstorms regardless. The showers and storms will start at the Gulf coast in the mornings with storms developing in the afternoons toward inland areas.
