Rain chances to increase in time for Father's Day

News 6 weather anchor Danny Treanor pinpoints tropics


ORLANDO, Fla. – A weather pattern similar to Saturday's is expected for Father's Day.

Rain, sometimes heavy, pushed its way across Central Florida Saturday. The weather pattern is expected to remain the same Sunday, causing another high chance of rain.

Overnight Saturday, the rain will end, but the clouds will linger. Lows will drop to 73 degrees in Holly Hill and Titusville, and 74 degrees in Orlando.

On Father's Day, rain chances will jump back up to 50 percent with some gusty winds, heavy downpours and frequent lightning expected, which will be much like we have had for the last two weeks. Highs on Sunday will be near 91 degrees, but temperatures will be a bit cooler at the beaches.

"The week ahead looks very active, with very high chances of rain each day," News 6 weather anchor Danny Treanor said.

Pinpointing the tropics

The current area of interest is the Yucatan Peninsula, where a low pressure system has a 70 percent chance of becoming a tropical system.

Continued gradual development is expected as the system moves slowly northwestward across the Yucatan Peninsula during the remainder of the weekend, and a tropical cyclone is likely to form early next week over the southern or central Gulf of Mexico.  Regardless of development, heavy rains are likely to spread over portions of Central America, the Yucatan Peninsula, Jamaica, the Cayman Islands and western Cuba during the next several days.


There is another area of interest in the Atlantic that is also being monitored with a 70 percent chance of becoming a tropical system.
