"The west-coast sea breeze will push inland and produce more rain for Central Florida," said Local 6 meteorologist Troy Bridges, who added that there's a 40 percent chance of rain.

Storms producing heavy rain and lightning began early Tuesday morning in Marion County.

Overnight lows will be in the mid-70s.

Rain chances remain at 40 percent in Orlando through the weekend.

Meanwhile, an area of low pressure in the Caribbean is moving through the Lesser Antilles and still has a 50 percent chance of strengthening into a tropical depression in five days. 

Most computer models currently show the system steering up the Atlantic, well east of Florida.

The next named tropical storm will be Gabrielle.
