Orlando weather: Another scorcher on Monday with highs in the mid to upper 90s

MONDAY: It will be another scorcher on Monday with highs back into the mid to upper 90s. Peak index will reach 104-108 making for dangerous hot conditions during the afternoon. Heat Advisories could be issued again for southern counties. Moisture will be on the rise and bring the return of storm chances mostly along and south of I-4. Storms could bring heavy rainfall and frequent lightning. Areas farther north should remain dry.

THIS WEEK: Rising tropical moisture will bring the return of daily storm chances. This change will help bring some much needed rain to Central Florida and hopefully help reduce and lessen drought conditions throughout the state. A low pressure system looks likely to bring a surge of tropical moisture into the Gulf of Mexico and spread to Florida. Tropical downpours will be likely each day with increased potential for some flooding by the end of the week. 

Models are coming together on where the highest rain totals, but for now a range of 2-6" seems fair for our area with localized higher values.

IN THE TROPICS: The messy low pressure system in the Gulf next week is unlikely to become anything. Models show a limited potential for a weak tropical depression. Any impact would likely be rain and some wind. Elsewhere in the tropics, it remains quiet.
