According to 10Weather WTSP meteorologist Ric Kearbey, storm chances will increase to about 60 percent after 2 p.m. Sunday with temperatures topping out just under 90 degrees. High humidity is also expected.

WTSP meteorologists are watching a storm system near the Yucatan Peninsula that has an 80 percent chance of becoming a tropical depression, Kearbey said. Even if it doesn't get that strong, Florida's west coast will see showers starting Monday with the heaviest rain expected Tuesday and Wednesday.
