ORLANDO, Fla. - Typical summer weather is in store for Central Florida this week as highs remain in the 90s with decent chances for afternoon storms across the area.
A line of strong storms crossed the I-4 corridor around 4:30 p.m. and arrived to the coast as severe storms by 5 p.m. The storms have lost some speed as they move east, creating some minor flooding over the coastal area of Brevard County, including Cape Canaveral.
Showers will cease by 9 p.m. across Central Florida. Low temperatures will gradually drop to the mid-70s.
Storms will continue to move from west to east through the day. Some storms will be developing or intensifying as they move eastward. Clusters will produce frequent lightning and ponding where they become more persistent.
THE REST OF THE WEEK:
Expect rain chances to be slightly above average for this time of the year, about 50 percent of Central Florida will receive measurable rain on Tuesday and Wednesday. By Friday, storm chance will be below average, around 30 percent.
All week lows are expected to level out at 75.
