Hurricane Ida pulls drier air into Central Florida on Sunday

ORLANDO, Fla. — As the many in the Gulf Coast deal with the impact of Hurricane Ida, Central Florida is seeing drier than normal conditions due to the massive storm.

WATCH: Eye of “extremely dangerous” Category 4 Hurricane Ida moves on shore

Ida is passing about 500 miles to the west of Central Florida and pulling in drier air from the east into our area.


As a result, Central Florida will only see spotty rain chances.

Central Florida is also close enough to Ida to feel a slight east-to-southeast breeze.

The highest chance for any storms into the evening will be west in Lake, Marion, Sumter and Polk counties.
