FOX 35 ORLANDO - Severe weather is expected to move through Central Florida on Friday.
Fox 35 meteorologists say that the window for severe weather risk opens up around 1 p.m. on Friday and continues into the early evening. A fast moving line of storms is expected to race through the region, bringing along damaging winds, heavy rain, and maybe even isolated tornadoes.
NWS Melbourne says that two rounds of storms are possible. Showers and storms will develop out ahead of the front on Friday afternoon, with the main line of storms moving through on Friday evening.
