"We will be pinpointing more afternoon storms," News 6 meteorologist Troy Bridges said. "Most of the storms come late in the day, mainly after 3 o'clock, as the sea breeze pushes inland."

Most of the beaches will be dry, however, Bridges said.

There's a 40 percent coverage of rain on Friday.

"Rain chances are only at 20 percent through the evening hours," Bridges said. "Some of those afternoon storms could be strong, with gusty winds greater than 45 mph."

The high temperature in Orlando will reach 93 degrees on Friday and Saturday.

The average afternoon high in Orlando on this date is 90.

"We will expect a high of 92 on Sunday," Bridges said. "Rain chances will be lower for Saturday at 30 percent and back to 40 percent on Sunday."
