The overnight low will be in the mid-70s in Orlando.

Tuesday's high will be near 90 degrees, and there's a 50 percent chance of more storms.

Meanwhile, Tropical Storm Grace, located about 3,000 miles out over the Atlantic, continues to have sustained winds of 45 mph as it tacks toward the west at 18 mph.

The official forecast cone from the National Hurricane Center maintains Grace as a tropical storm before weakening into a depression by the weekend as it approaches the Leeward Islands.
