Weather system bringing gusts, storms on the way

Sunday's warm, windy sunshine will shift overnight to gusty rain with possibly severe storms developing Monday.

The wind could gust up to 30 mph Sunday afternoon, and even strengthen some later, said Bay News 9 meteorologist Josh Linker.

"But the bigger deal is the low-pressure area developing in the gulf," he said.

That system will bring rain and thunderstorms Monday to the Tampa Bay region, he said.

An average of about a half-inch of rainfall across the region is likely, but those totals will vary and areas most affected by thunderstorms could get up to 2 inches, he said.

A chance of rain will continue into Tuesday morning, but then the weather should clear later that day, he said.

The rainy forecast is related to a larger weather system moving eastward across the country, he said.

"The rest of the week looks nice," Linker said.

    Country music has a dude problem.

    I’m not talking about the proliferation of mindless bro country over the past half-decade, nor am I referring to the fact that most of Nashville’s best music these days comes not from said bros, from female singers and songwriters.
