ORLANDO, Fla. - Channel 9 meteorologist Brian Shields said Central Floridians can expect a great week of weather as Hurricane Humberto remains offshore, continuing to move away from the state.
Shields said Humberto is not expected to impact the U.S. as it heads back out into the Atlantic. He said there’s another wave developing in the Central Atlantic, but that it doesn’t appear to be of any threat.
In Central Florida, he said we can expect drier weather this week with rain chances maxing out around 20 percent with highs in the low 90s.
Shields said Monday’s forecast calls for partly cloudy skies with only a 20 percent chance of a passing shower and a high of 91.
A high surf advisory will remain in place, with waves expected to be 6-9 feet and a high risk of rip currents.
