"As the east and west coast sea breezes fire up, storms will develop and push inland through the day," News 6 meteorologist Troy Bridges said.

Rain chances will be 50 percent on Thursday afternoon in the Orlando area.

"Some storms could be strong, with gusty winds, heavy rain and lightning for that drive home," Bridges said. "Some students are back in school. They will need the rain gear for the bus stop this afternoon."

Rain chances will be 40 percent on Friday and 30 percent on Saturday and Sunday as tropical moisture begins to push away from Central Florida.

"We will see our typical summer pattern of the sea breezes coming together through the weekend," Bridges said.

Afternoon high temperatures will be close to the average in the low 90s through next week.
