Central Fla. could see heavy rain, thunderstorms Sunday afternoon

Coastal counties to stay mostly dry

ORLANDO, Fla. – Central Florida will see a weather pattern Sunday that is similar to Saturday's.

Orlando will reach a high of 90 degrees with a 60 percent coverage of rain.

"We've started off even nicer than yesterday with partly cloudy skies," News 6 meteorologist Madeline Evans said.

There will be cloud cover and sunshine on and off throughout the afternoon. By 2 p.m. rain will move into Orange and Seminole counties.

By 4 p.m., Seminole, Orange, Osceola and Lake counties could see heavy rain and thunderstorms. They won't be long-lasting, but they have the potential to dump heavy rain and bring frequent lightning. 

By 9 p.m., all of the rain will push off to the west, leaving it dry and mostly cloudy with a low of 75 degrees.

"It's not a bad day for the beach," Evans said. "The east coast will stay mostly dry for today and a high of 85. The seas are 2-3 feet and there is a moderate rip current risk."

A similar weather pattern is expected throughout this week. Each day has at least a 50 percent coverage of rain in the afternoon and temperatures will stay in the mid- to high 80s.
