MIDWAY, Fla. (WTXL) -- Mainly clear conditions dominated the afternoon for most of the viewing area, with the exception of counties along the I-75 corridor. Rich moist flow along the eastern Gulf of Mexico has helped increase cloud cover and rainfall along the east and that trend will likely continue into Monday. Tropical Storm Erika's remnants will be carried along the same region around Tuesday and that may help increase rainfall all along the region, though eastern counties again will likely see the brunt of the moisture. Overnight lows into Monday morning will likely be in the lower 70s along the western Big Bend and Southwest Georgia with lower to mid 70s out east. Daytime highs on Monday are forecast to be in the lower 90s out west with highs struggling to reach those values out east because of the extended cloud cover expected. Rain coverage will be around 30% with the highest coverage along the Suwannee River Valley near I-75. Overall, rain coverage will likely grow (40-50%) after Tuesday as the area should experience warm moist air to stick around.
