With the strongest winds coming from the west, we can expect the strongest storms to be mainly focused over Brevard and Volusia counties. These storms could develop their own wind flow moving toward the west that could develop some more storms inland. About 60 percent of Central Florida should get measurable rain.

The main threat from these storms will be lightning and damaging gusts. Also, some thunderstorms could linger longer along the coast creating some flooding.
