"Moisture will increase in the atmosphere across Central Florida," News 6 meteorologist Troy Bridges said. "With added moisture as the east coast sea breeze pushes in, thunderstorms will be a little more widespread and will linger a little longer into the early evening."

Some storms will be strong, with the main threat being wind gusts up to 50 mph, Bridges said. Other threats include heavy rain and lightning.

The coverage of rain will be 40 percent on Friday before dropping to 30 percent over the weekend.

Afternoon high temperatures will be in the mid-90s across Central Florida for the next several days.

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

Record highs are in the upper 90s.

"Expect the 'feels like' temperature to be near 100 in many spots through the afternoon before some of the heaviest rain comes," Bridges said.
