Another wet weekend on tap for Central Florida
Official start to summer kicks off in days
ORLANDO, Fla. – "We have a typical summer-like weekend ahead of us," News 6 meteorologist Madeline Evans said.
Most of Central Florida will reach the high 80s and low 90s Saturday. Orlando will make it to a high of 91 degrees and will start the day off dry. There will be patchy on and off cloud cover throughout the morning and afternoon. By 2 p.m., light, spotty showers will start to push into Volusia and Orange counties. By 6 p.m., heavier rain and possible thunderstorms will push into Orange County and continue west into Marion, Lake and Sumter counties by 9 p.m.
Summer officially starts in four days. The first official day of summer is June 21 at 12:24 a.m.
"Not a bad day for the beach if you get out there early," Evans said, "Daytona Beach will reach a high of 90, with the water temperature sitting at 75. The seas are only 1 to 2 feet and only a slight rip current risk."
Temperatures will drop to a low of 74 degrees and be mostly cloudy overnight Saturday.
Central Florida will have a high of 90 degrees for Father's Day Sunday, with a 60 percent coverage of afternoon rain and thunderstorms.
There is a tropical wave just south of Cape Verde moving west toward the Wayward Islands. There is a 70 percent chance of tropical development in the next five days.
"Closer to home, there is a broad area of low pressure moving to the northwest, over the Yucatan Peninsula and reaching the Gulf of Mexico by the middle of next week," Evans said. "This also has a 70 percent chance of tropical development in the next five days."
