"Today's weather setup is similar to the last few days, as we will be pinpointing the east and the west coast sea breezes through the afternoon," News 6 meteorologist Troy Bridges said. "There are a few changes, though."

Expect the west coast sea breeze to push most of the storms from west to east after 1 p.m., Bridges said.

Some storms will be strong, with gusty winds, lightning and heavy rain for the drive home.

Rain chances will be 70 percent.

"If you're making evening plans, expect storms to stick around even as late as 11 o'clock," Bridges said.

High temperatures will be close to the average of 91 degrees.

Highs will remain in the low and mid-90s through the weekend, including the Fourth of July.

Rain chances stay high at 60 percent from Friday through Sunday.

Rain chances will be at 40 percent for the Fourth of July.

"Rain chances should be out of the picture just in time for fireworks at the fountain at Lake Eola," Bridges said.
