ORLANDO, Fla. – After a dry Monday, rain chances increase in Central Florida.

"Rain chances are all part of the east coast seabreeze pushing in and an increase in moisture and humidity in the atmosphere," Local 6 meteorologist Troy Bridges said.

There's a 30 percent chance of rain Tuesday across the region.

"Afternoon high temperature will stay above the average all week, into the low 90s," Bridges said.

The average high in Orlando is 89 degrees.

"Increasing moisture in the atmosphere, along with the east and west coast seabreezes will lead to a 50 percent chance for more scattered showers and storms on Wednesday," Bridges said.  "Rain chances will still be in the forecast all week, from 30 to 40 percent, and into the weekend.

High temperatures will be near 90 into the weekend.
