Showers, storms approaching Central Florida

ORLANDO, Fla. — Afternoon update:

Current weather conditions are warm, windy and humid -- for now.


Several storms are approaching and should pass through the area Monday evening, certified meteorologist George Waldenberger said.

“Scattered, brief showers and even thunderstorms are possible briefly in most areas after sunset,” he said. “Then a cold front passes and cools us down for tomorrow.”

Waldenberger said conditions will then be less humid, with the rest of the workweek shaping up to be quite dry.

“But rain returns to the forecast for both days this weekend,” he said. “We’ll monitor how this impacts the Daytona 500 in the days ahead.”
