Rain beginning to pop inland

Beaches should stay dry

ORLANDO, Fla. – Rain is popping up in the interior, but not much at the beaches.

Stronger storms will be capable of locally heavy rain amounts from 1-2 inches, gusty winds over 40 mph and frequent lightning.

After the rains, the lows for Saturday night will drop to the mid-70s under partly cloudy skies.

More of the same for Sunday with fewer showers is expected. Coastal area will continue to be rain free.
