The Orlando area will see highs in the upper 80s on Saturday thanks to cloud cover and rain.

"We will be partly cloudy throughout the day, with a 60 percent chance of rain," News 6 meteorologist Madeline Evans said. "Showers will start up early Saturday afternoon and fire up some possible thunderstorms in the evening. By 6 p.m., what's left pushes to the east coast and we are dry but mostly cloudy for the rest of the night."

The overnight low will reach 75 degrees.

Rain chances go down Sunday, but the high will be in the 90s.

"There's a 50 percent chance of rain, but it doesn't push in until much later in the day compared to Saturday," Evans said.

Tracking the tropics

Hermine was off the Carolina coast Saturday morning, dumping a lot of rain and causing high storm surges.

Meanwhile, there's a tropical wave located 800 miles west of the Lesser Antilles.

"It has a low chance of tropical development, 20 percent over the next five days," Evans said. "I hope everyone has a great holiday weekend!"
