We’ll stay mostly dry throughout much of the day, rain chances will increase late Sunday night, after 8 p.m., as a second system arrives from the Gulf with another round of rain.
It will be a cold rain and will continue through Monday morning. Drier conditions are expected by Monday afternoon as the system passes out into the Atlantic. Cooler and drier air will once again filter into the Tampa Bay area for the middle of the week and temperatures will be below average.
