Central Florida to see pleasant day

Slight chance of rain along east coast

ORLANDO, Fla. – It will be a pleasant Tuesday in Central Florida, although there's a slim chance of rain.

"We are pinpointing a slight chance at 10 percent for a few showers to move onshore along the coast," News 6 meteorologist Troy Bridges said. "It's because there is a slight breeze out of the southeast bringing a little bit more moisture."

Inland areas will be mostly sunny, warming to a high of 80.

"A new front will approach on Wednesday, especially into the afternoon, with a few showers and even a few embedded thunderstorms," he said. "The coverage of rain will be 30 percent."

Rain chances are out of the picture for Thursday and Friday, but will return again on Saturday and Sunday.

Afternoon high temperatures will stay in the 80s across the board for through next Monday.

"There will be rough seas through the weekend as winds off the ocean out of the southeast continue to kick up just a bit. Expect rip current risks as well," Bridges said.
