Risk of severe storms ramps up across Central Florida

The chance for severe storms is ramping up across Central Florida.

An approaching cold front and energy building over the Gulf of Mexico is bringing the risk of strong to severe storms into Central Florida. Some storms are possible Sunday but Monday and Tuesday will have more activity.

As a result, we are declaring Monday and Tuesday a FOX 35 Storm Alert Day.

There is just a marginal risk for storms on Sunday, with lots of rain expected at the least. Rain chances are rising as the night progresses. In addition, temperatures should hit the mid-80s on Sunday with clouds lingering.
