    Heavy rain causes flooding Sunday on Cedar Key Island off the Florida Gulf Coast.

    Florida officials urged residents and businesses Sunday to prepare for heavy rain leading to widespread flash floods this week along the entire width of the Panhandle, NBC News reported.

    A low-pressure system was stalled over the northern Florida peninsula, fueling a chance of heavy showers and thunderstorms.

    Flood watches were in effect Sunday night for the Florida Nature Coast and Big Bend all the way into Tuesday.

    The system is also forecast to drive temperatures up, with heat indexes predicted to hit 102 to 107 degrees across the state from Pensacola to Jacksonville.
