Widely scattered showers expected Sunday in Central Florida

Winds will also back down a little Sunday

ORLANDO, Fla. – Lots of clouds, along with showers rolling in off the Atlantic Ocean, created a mixed weather day Saturday. More of the same is expected for Sunday.

Most of the showers just rain, but a few had thunder and lightning. As temperatures remain below 90 degrees, the chance for summer-like thunderstorms is greatly reduced.

Into the night, humidity will remain high with only an isolated brief shower passing by. Lows Saturday night will range from 70 degrees inland to 71 degrees at the beaches with a 30 percent chance of rain.

For Sunday, the winds will back down a little, but will continue to bring in widely scattered showers from the Atlantic. A few may have some thunder and lightning.

Highs on Sunday will range from 85 degrees inland to 82 degrees along the coast. Rain chances are at 30 percent inland and at 40 percent in coastal communities.

The week ahead has normal temperatures and 20-30 percent chance of rain. Some cooler air might arrive by next weekend.

Tracking the tropics

Hurricane Nicole heads toward Greenland out in the Atlantic Ocean and is no threat to the U.S. The Category 1 hurricane had sustained winds of 85 mph late Saturday morning.

Elsewhere, the tropics are quiet with no storms expected in the next five days.
