ORLANDO, Fla. – Flooding has plagued parts of Central Florida over the last couple of days, and there's no relief in sight.

"We're tracking more heavy rain for Central Florida on Thursday afternoon," Local 6 meteorologist Troy Bridges said.  "An area of low pressure with lots of moisture and energy will move closer to Central Florida, increasing rain chances to 60 percent into the afternoon."

Bridges said a stalled front will act as a focal point for more heavy rain for the next few days.

"Rain chances will be high at 60 percent into Friday and 50 percent into the weekend and next week," Bridges said.

North of the front, drier, cooler air can be expected, Bridges said.

Temperatures in the region on Thursday began in the 60s for Marion, Volusia, Lake and Seminole counties.

"Brevard and Osceola counties still feel warm and sticky," Bridges said.

High temperatures in the Orlando area will remain near the average of 89 degrees.
