"The weather here in Central Florida has certainly resembled a roller coaster as of late and that trend is in play again for the week ahead," said FOX 35 Storm Team Chief Meteorologist Jayme King. 

The latest rainfall forecast models show a huge increase in rain chances by mid-late morning from north to south. Expect widespread showers all across Central Florida after lunchtime, holding steady through the drive home at 5 p.m.


Showers ease a bit in coverage late tonight and even more so by Wednesday morning. If you're heading out to the theme parks-attractions today, expect your day to be impacted by the wet skies and chilly temps.

It'll be a good day to trade the cold drinks for hot drinks at the concession stands today. Rainfall amounts will prove to be beneficial with local amounts in the 1/2 inch range.
