Central Florida set for steamy day

Orlando to see high temperatures in mid-90s


ORLANDO, Fla. – Rain chances creep up in Central Florida on Friday with sea breeze storms expected for part of the region.

"A ridge of high pressure continues to sit across Central Florida," News 6 meteorologist Candace Campos said. "A band of higher moisture is shown eroding the drier air in place, adding extra instability by the afternoon."

The added moisture, combined with the heating of the day, will allow for the formation of sea breeze showers and storms by midday. 

Rain chances will be 30 to 40 percent for neighborhoods west of Interstate 95.

"Some of the convection should linger into the evening hours, especially in Lake County," Campos said.

Highs will be in the mid-90s for most areas, including Orlando.

"Factoring high humidity levels and light southerly winds, expect 'feels-like' temperatures to soar into the triple digits during the afternoon," Campos said. "Expect more of the same through the weekend."
