Orlando weather: Afternoon showers, storms possible on Monday

Another front will swing through Central Florida on Monday. Most areas will remain dry but a few afternoon showers and storms will be possible, mostly across areas south of Orlando. 

Thanks to the northerly wind and clouds, highs should remain below 90.

On Tuesday, a few isolated rain chances return with the afternoon seabreeze. 

Severe weather is unlikely on Monday and Tuesday. Highs once again should remain below 90 degrees.

Later this week:

 As drier air arrives, rain chances go down and temperatures go up. Highs will reach the low to mid-90s Thursday onward into Memorial Day weekend. We could see some rain chances return for the holiday weekend.

Original story below:

Sunday has been declared a FOX Storm Alert Day in Central Florida due to the potential for severe weather. 

After a few morning showers and rumbles of thunder across northern areas of Central Florida, better chances of strong to severe storms are possible this afternoon.

The main timeframe of when these storms will arrive and develop is from 1 p.m. through 6 p.m., mainly for areas southeast of Orlando.

  • Primary impacts will be damaging wind gusts and hail, but a tornado or two can't be ruled out. Other impacts include heavy downpours and frequent lightning.
  • Brevard County, Osceola County, eastern Orange County, and southern Volusia and Seminole counties are the areas that have the highest chance of seeing strong/severe storms.

It's important to note that not everyone will see rain and storms today. Plus, this is a complicated forecast that is dependent on multiple factors. One factor that could limit the storm potential would be any cloud cover. The clouds would mean less sunshine and temperatures that won't be as warm. 

We'll continue to watch these trends over the coming hours, so be sure to stay tuned for more!
