WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — Take advantage of a mainly dry day on Monday - because it looks like a very wet and stormy week after that.

The best chance of any showers and Monday will be west of I-95, otherwise it'll be mostly sunny and hot both days.

The storm prediction center has included portions of Okeechobee and Indian River County in a marginal risk for severe weather ( level 1 out of 5 )

A front will move in and stall over central Florida setting us up for widespread rain and storms from Tuesday through Friday.

Some computer models are painting a swath of 2"-4" of rain this week, something to keep an eye on.

This system is expected to push away from us slowly by the upcoming holiday weekend so fingers are crossed for some sunny, drier weather by Memorial Day.

There are currently no advisories in effect for boaters but if you're heading to the beach today the rip current risk is high so only swim at guarded beaches.
