SEBASTIAN, Florida – Sebastian and Vero Beach are experiencing showers and thunderstorms Sunday and more rain in the forecast for Tuesday.

Our Sebastian weatherman, who now lives in a tent after someone stole his van and set it on fire, says there’s more rain coming this week.

“I hope we get so much rain that it floods,” he said. “We have five weather disturbances in the Atlantic. I’m feeling jolly about this weather.”

This rain ruined plans for many, from golfing to boating, and it may continue this week.

We have another tropical wave that could become a weak tropical storm, and a lot of rain may come with it.

There’s only a 20 percent chance of rain for Monday, but expect rain for the rest of week.

The rain chance increases Tuesday through Saturday.

None of the weather disturbances in the Atlantic pose a serious threat to our area. But, it will bring a lot of rain.
