"We're monitoring a weak and disorganized tropical disturbance heading toward Florida, but I'm not expecting any tropical development.  We are however increasing our rain chances this weekend, with the heaviest rain likely on Sunday," said chief meteorologist Tom Terry.

"We’ll starting seeing some passing downpours Saturday afternoon, with a higher likelihood of rain and a few storms on Sunday afternoon as our weak tropical disturbance gets picked up by a front and moves to our south and away by Monday," added Terry.




Heavy rainfall is also likely. Some parts of Central Florida could see more than 2 inches of rain by Sunday night.
