Storms over #Apopka with more building closer to downtown #Orlando, this could be wave #3 of rain for some. We'll track where rain is headed next on #WFTV at 6pm (or after the basketball game ends) with @DJonesWFTV @LenKieseTV. pic.twitter.com/WTkl9TPZng

Lightning storms are headed that direction. Take cover from any #lightning that strikes nearby, wait out the rain until it's safe to head back out to beaches. #WFTV #FLwx #Florida #Orlando pic.twitter.com/qTOO8ABAls
