Summer weather pattern in full effect this week; what to expect tonight

ORLANDO, Fla. — Abundant tropical moisture over Florida means each day will bring a risk of afternoon downpours with lightning and gusty winds.


Heavy rains may add up to 1 to 3 inches of rainfall in some spots on any given afternoon this week, certified meteorologist George Waldenberger said.

“Watch out for street flooding during the rains,” he said. “Today, storms will be scattered about through around sunset.”

For Wednesday, expect a quiet morning and a slight chance of rain during the lunch hour, Waldenberger said.

“(The evening) commute will have areas of heavy rain, which will taper after dinner,” he said.
