ORLANDO, Fla. – A hot holiday weekend is on tap for Central Florida, and, of course, there's a chance of storms.
"Rain chances will be at 30 percent into the afternoon on Friday as the east and west coast seabreezes come together," Local 6 meteorologist Troy Bridges said. "A few storms will be strong, with the main threat being lightning and heavy rain in time for the drive home -- for those who are working."
Temperatures will be in the mid-90s in the Orlando area. The average afternoon high in Orlando is 91.
Rain is currently falling Altamonte Springs for Red, Hot & Boom, where more than 150,000 people are expected for the city's annual fireworks show.
The chance of rain will also be 30 percent on Saturday for fireworks festivals across Central Florida, including downtown Orlando.
High temperatures will remain above the average through the weekend and into next week.
