The National Weather Service issued significant weather advisories in Orange, Brevard, Volusia, Polk, Flagler and Osceola counties as a line of thunderstorms moved through into the rush hour.

A viewer sent Local 6 a picture of a tree that fell through her screened-in pool area during the storms.

"The remnant showers are racing away to the east at better than 40 MPH," said Local 6 Chief Meteorologist Tom Sorrells. "Tonight the sky will clear and the temps will drop. Look for the low in Orlando to dip to 53 degrees."

Saturday will be a sun-filled day with a high of only 70 degrees. The low Saturday night into Sunday morning will be 48 degrees.

Sunday is another Spring-like day with a high of 73. Back to work on Monday, the high will climb to 76 for a high.

Rain returns to the forecast on Wednesday with a 20 percent chance of rain and a high of 83.
