Rain to begin early in Central Florida


Rain chances will begin early once again on Thursday as lots of deep moisture stays in place across Central Florida.

The West Coast seabreeze will develop and early in the day it will push from west to east leading to early afternoon storms that linger into drive time.

"Some storms will be strong," said Local 6 meteorologist Troy Bridges. "The main threat will be lightning and strong wind just as well as very heavy rain as people hit the road to later today."

The coverage of rain will be up to 60 percent Thursday, Friday and Saturday and 50 percent Sunday through the work week next week.

Afternoon high temperatures will be close to the average of 92 for Thursday, Friday and into the weekend.
