The warnings were issued in Orange and Osceola counties until 6:15 p.m. The storm was moving northwest at 10 mph.

A severe thunderstorm warning was also issued for Flagler County until 6:30 p.m.

"The sea breeze will push inland and create storms Thursday across Central Florida," News 6 meteorologist Troy Bridges said. "Some storms will be strong just in time for the drive home."

Expect strong winds of 50 mph, heavy, rain and lightning, Bridges said.

"Rain chances will remain at 40 percent into next week as sea breeze action continues to fire up," Bridges said.

High temperatures will remain in the mid-90s through the weekend.

The average afternoon high in Orlando on this date is 92.

"Feels like" temperatures will remain above 100 degrees before the rain slightly cools the region in the afternoon.

Storms rolled through Lake County on Wednesday, downing trees and power lines. No injuries were reported, however.
