Rain, but no washout, forecast for Central Florida

Orlando to see high near 90 degrees

ORLANDO, Fla. – Rain is expected in parts of Central Florida on Friday, but it won't be a washout like the last several days.

"Much drier air is building in behind an area of low pressure in the front that has moved out of Central Florida," News 6 meteorologist Troy Bridges said. "There's still a chance for a couple sprinkles to start, but most of Central Florida it will remain dry during the morning hours."

Afternoon storms, however, are possible.

"We will see those afternoon storms firing up along the east and west coast seabreezes," Bridges said. "It will be a typical summer-like pattern  as the wet season develops. Rain chances will mainly be after 2 o'clock in the afternoon before dying out in time for late evening plans."

The coverage of rain will be 30 percent.
