ORLANDO, Fla. – "The rain is back after one quick day of quiet on Friday," News 6 weather anchor Danny Treanor said.

Tropical moisture from the south has pushed back into the area, providing the ingredients for a 60 percent chance of rain that will continue into the evening hours Saturday.

Some areas will see thunderstorms producing heavy rains and frequent lightning. Winds gusting up to more than 40 mph are also very possible. Some flooding and ponding of water on roadways may also be possible as rainfall reaches 1.5-2 inches.

The rains will taper off Saturday night and lows will drop down to a muggy 73 degrees in Orlando, and 72 degrees in Palm Bay and Ocala. Rain chances will drop to 20 percent.

"Rewind and reload for Sunday, as rain chances are once again high," Treanor said. "The chance of rain will be 50 percent and highs will top out at 90 for Orlando, 88 for Melbourne and 87 in Daytona Beach."

A similar weather pattern is expected for the upcoming week. Rain chances will stay around 60 percent in the afternoon each day.

"Turn on your headlights when you turn on your wipers. It's Florida law," Treanor said.
