    With the exception of some showers and storms over the Gulf, it will stay dry overnight with partly cloudy skies and a low temperature of 74 degrees.

    Monday's weather will be similar to Sunday with plenty of sunshine in the morning, followed by a 40% chance of showers and storms in the afternoon.  Daytime highs will be a few degrees above average with a temps around 90 degrees.  Much drier, less humid air will work its way into the region on Tuesday as a cool front passes through the area.  High pressure will then build across the sunshine state.  The subsidence, or sinking air, associated with the high will limit our rain chances through next weekend.
