The weather pattern of recent weeks will continue in North Central Florida this week as clouds build and temperatures rise during the day before giving way to afternoon and evening showers.

Monday will be partly sunny with a high near 89 with light winds. There is a chance of showers and thunderstorms after 10 a.m. and into the evening, according to the National Weather Service in Jacksonville.

The rest of the week will be almost identical, with the chance of afternoon rain holding steady each day at around 20 percent. High temperatures should reach into the low 90s each day, with lows in the 70s.

Rain chances will increase as the week goes on, with a 30 percent chance of rain Saturday and Sunday.

The NWS said that the storms will be erratic because of low winds in the atmosphere to steer the clouds. A few storms early in the week could be strong to severe with the main hazards being frequent lightning and gusty winds.
