A severe thunderstorm hit Osceola and Orange Counties Wednesday afternoon.
The wet weather will continue throughout the day as widespread rain is in the forecast across Central Florida.
"Yes, more storms today, but some could be stronger than yesterday," Severe Weather Center 9 meteorologist Brian Shields said.
The average high is 90 degrees, and the average low temperature will reach 75 degrees in the evening.
Some of the storms later today could be strong to severe. Winds over 60 mph possible...large clusters of lightning too. I'm tracking the rounds of storms, now on Channel 9.— Brian Shields (@BShieldsWFTV) June 12, 2019
"Also, be mindful of the lightning. Clusters of lightning will be possible. If you hear thunder, get indoors. By early next week, the rain chance should go down slightly," Shields said.
On the beach side, there is a low risk of rip currents.
