Cold front to bring more rain to Central Florida

High temperatures to remain near 90 degrees in Orlando area

ORLANDO, Fla. - Rain chances will remain high in Central Florida over the next couple of days as a cold front is expected to stall over the region.

"The cold front won't bring cooler temperatures, but it will give us rain for the next several days," Local 6 meteorologist Troy Bridges said.

There will be a 60 percent coverage area in the Orlando area on Tuesday and Wednesday, Bridges said.

Rain chances decrease slightly toward the end of the week and the weekend.

The high temperature will be near 90 degrees for the rest of the week, with lows in the low to mid-70s.

Some storms passed through the region Monday night, with a lightning strike blamed for a house fire in Winter Springs.

Meanwhile, a tropical wave in the eastern Atlantic could become the next named storm.  If the weather system strengthens, it would be named Oscar.

"The computer models are keeping it far away from the U.S.," Bridges said.
