Orlando weather: Father's Day forecast for Central Florida

TONIGHT: As the evening progresses, our showers and storms will gradually fade and come to an end. By midnight, we should be dry across Central Florida. 

It will be another warm and muggy night with lows in the mid 70s. Mostly cloudy skies overnight will ward off any fog from forming.

FATHER'S DAY: Sunday's forecast for Central Florida is mostly dry and seasonable. The only hiccup that could interfere with dinnertime plans is the isolated chance of showers and storms. 

These won't be widespread but will still bring some brief periods of heavy rain and lightning to areas that get caught underneath these storms. Temperatures will be warm yet seasonable, with highs near 90 degrees.

LOOKING AHEAD: The new work week features daily chances of a few isolated showers, storms, and high temperatures that will be near normal for afternoon highs. Winds will be gusty as well, especially for the first half of the week. Wind gusts may reach peak speeds of around 30 mph.

TROPICS: According to the latest update from the NHC, a 50% chance of development over the next 7 days exists for the system heading into the Bay of Campeche in the SW Gulf of Mexico. Low pressure is set to develop over the southwestern Gulf of Mexico by late Sunday or into the early part of this week. Conditions are favorable for gradual development, which means a tropical depression might be able to form during the early to middle part of next week as it moves slowly westward or west-northwestward. The first name this year is "Alberto."

  • The chance of formation within the next 48 hours is low, at 0%.
  • The chance of formation within the next 7 days is medium, at 50%.
