     A stationary frontal boundary across South Florida will begin to lift north  through Monday increasing our chances for rain. Low pressure will track along the frontal boundary pulling in moisture from the Gulf and will move across the state giving us a 70% chance of rain on Sunday. 

    The Nature coast will be the first area to see the rain, with Tampa Bay and points south getting rain by late Sunday afternoon into the evening.  On Monday a cold front will drop into the northern Gulf and merge with a warm front before eventually dissipating.  Sunnier skies and warmer temps will begin on Tuesday through Friday.

Showers and isolated storms likely late afternoon into the evening.  Chance of precipitation is 70%.
