Central Florida forecast: Hot and sticky

Sea breeze storms expected in Orlando area

ORLANDO, Fla. – High heat, humidity and a good chance of sea breeze storms: It's summertime in Central Florida.

"We are pinpointing more of those afternoon storms as the east and west coast sea breezes come together, mainly after 2 o'clock," News 6 meteorologist Troy Bridges said. "We can't rule out one or two showers as early as the lunch hour."

Most of the severe risk will be from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m., Bridges said.

"Expect a chance for some lightning, heavy rain and strong winds gusts for that drive home," he said. 

Rain chances will remain at 60 percent on Thursday.

"The chance of rain will be 50 percent on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, with high temperatures in the low and mid-90s," Bridges said. "The Fourth of July will be as hot as a firecracker, with highs in the low and mid-90s."

Rain chances should come to and end just in time for fireworks at the Lake Eola fountain, Bridges added.
