Expect summer-like afternoon storms through the weekend.




Late afternoon update:

The warm pattern will continue through the rest of the week, with highs reaching the low to mid-90s and afternoon storms ramping up just in time for the weekend.

The sea breezes, from both coasts, have triggered some scattered strong storms, a couple of storms have turned severe. We could have a few more severe cells during the next few hours across inland locations. The sea breeze is noticeable on Doppler 9 moving west, as the west coast sea breeze has already developed some storms over Sumter and Lake counties and they move eastward. Both sea breezes will collide and more storms will likely develop across Seminole, Orange, and northern Osceola counties.


Stay weather aware, as some storms have a history of developing strong winds and small hail.

Expect the storm chance to increase to 40 to 50 percent for the weekend, mainly affecting inland locations.
