"Rain chances increase for the next couple of days as we track a front moving in from the north," News 6 meteorologist Troy Bridges said.  "Expect a 50 percent chance of rain on Friday.  Rain chances increase to 70 percent Saturday, and they'll be 60 percent on Sunday."

Afternoon high temperatures in Orlando on Friday will be in the low 90s.

"Because of the added clouds and rain, we'll only warm into the upper 80s for both Saturday and Sunday," Bridges said.

Tracking the Tropics

Forecasters say Tropical Storm Henri is beginning to show signs of losing organization as it races up the north Atlantic.

The storm's top sustained winds were near 40 mph (65 kph) by midday Friday. The U.S. National Hurricane Center says Henri is forecast to become a post-tropical storm on Saturday if it doesn't dissipate before then.

Henri is centered about 680 miles (1,095 kilometers) south-southwest of Cape Race Newfoundland, Canada. It is moving north-northeast at 20 mph (31 kph) and is expected to pick up speed in coming hours.
