Line of storms bring heavy rain, wind gusts to parts of Central Florida

It appears to be another very active afternoon and evening on the radar across Central Florida for the midweek peak.

A strong, but fast-moving, line of storms delivered heavy rain and wind gusts of up to 60 miles per hour to parts of the Orlando area early Wednesday afternoon.  Those storms, which stretch from north to south across our viewing area, continue to track to the east. 

Afternoon highs climbed into the low 90s across interior counties, but the rain has lowered those temperatures considerably.  As the storm head east, temperatures ahead of the showers are in mid to upper 80s along our eastern coastal communities.

Showers will last throughout the early evening with coverage fairly widespread, in about the 60 percent range.  There will likely be some stronger storms with locally heavy rain, and frequent lightning.  However, because the storms came through earlier in afternoon, that will lower temperatures and make severe weather less likely as the evening progresses.

Overnight, things calm down with lows in the low 70s, under mainly cloudy skies.
