Orlando weather forecast: Rain and storms dominate the weekend
ORLANDO, Fla. - WHAT IS THE WEATHER FORECAST FOR TODAY AROUND ORLANDO?
Day Break forecast low: 75 degrees
Tomorrow's forecast high: 93 degrees
MAIN WEATHER CONCERNS:
A weak front will move into Georgia and stall at the Florida border. This will induce a westerly flow which will push any afternoon storms that form toward the coast. This means a lightning hazard for beach-goers all weekend during the afternoon. The overall chance for rain is likely, mainly after 1 p.m. and storms should end each day around 9 p.m. Otherwise, it'll be extra humid with highs in the low-90s, feels-like temps close to 100°.
WHAT IS THE WEATHER FORECAST FOR WALT DISNEY WORLD, UNIVERSAL, AND SEAWORLD?
Hot and super muggy, followed by a stormy afternoons ... again. Be careful in the heat, especially if you're not used to Florida in August.
WHAT IS THE WEATHER FORECAST FOR THE BEACHES IN CENTRAL FLORIDA?
Moderate risk for rip currents and waves of 1-2 feet, with a brushed appearance thanks to the offshore flow. Should be great for standup paddleboarding. Lightning will be a hazard as storms will have no trouble rushing toward the beaches. Likely a rain chance at the beach after 2 p.m. each day.
The pattern continues into next week, but rain chances should diminish Tuesday before picking up again late next week.
TRACKING THE TROPICS:
A surface trough in the western Gulf may develop into a tropical depression or tropical storm over the next few days before working ashore in Texas, bringing what could be some flooding rains to the S. Texas Valley region of the Rio Grande. No impacts to FL. The chance for development per the NHC is low, at 10%.
