ORLANDO, Fla. - ORLANDO WEATHER: Tonight's low: 76 degrees | Tomorrow's high: 92 degrees | Rain: 80% chance of p.m. storms
It's a wet and soggy Friday in Central Florida as storms have dropped more than an inch of rain in some spots. Showers will linger into the evening.
Main weather concerns: Another round of showers and storms are expected this weekend, mainly after 2 p.m. We could see an isolated shower or two before 12 p.m. so make sure you stay weather aware! The main weather threats are heavy rain, frequent lightning, and gusty winds. The highest coverage will be across the interior and the lowest coverage at 50%-60% across Brevard County. Rain will ease up in the late evening with overnight lows in the mid-70s.
BEACHES: There will be a 60% chance for afternoon showers/storms at the beaches primarily after 11 a.m. as the Atlantic seabreeze develops. Rain chances continue growing deeper into the evening hours. Lightning will be a possible danger should storms drift back towards the coast in the late afternoon and early evening. Remember, when thunder roars, go indoors. There is a moderate risk for rip currents, make sure to swim near an open lifeguard stand.
THEME PARKS: Hot and humid conditions with numerous afternoon storms will be the story Saturday and Sunday at the theme parks. Feels like temperatures will be in the triple digits, so make sure to stay hydrated and take breaks inside the a/c. Plan for rain delays on fireworks and outdoor activities. The best chance for rain is between 2 p.m. and 9 p.m. Heavy rain and lightning will be likely.
