ORLANDO, Fla. - Storms developed shortly after 2 p.m. Tuesday afternoon. The sea breeze moved inland developing showers and storms. The onshore winds helped the storms move fast to the west-northwest at about 20 mph.
High temperatures during the afternoon reached between 88 and 92 degrees across Central Florida.
Expect a few, very spotty, storms to finish the afternoon, most of them staying inland. During the evening, temperatures will gradually decrease to the mid-70s and skies will remain partly cloudy.
The rip current risk at the beach is low, however, it is advised to always check with beach patrol before entering the water.
Temperatures will stay seasonably hot, highs in the low 90s and lows in the mid-70s. Heat indices in the afternoon will be in the triple digits.
A more stable and drier air mass will limit the storms from developing across much of Central Florida. About 30 percent of the area will receive measurable rain. Spotty storms mainly in the afternoon hours.
Average storm chance for this time of the year is about 40 to 50 percent. The below average rain chance will stay put through the end of the work-week
