Storms rumble through Central Florida

Chance of rain stays in forecast this week


ORLANDO, Fla. – Father's Day has been another day of heavy rain in Central Florida.

Central Florida has received rain almost every day for more than two weeks and a 50 percent chance of rain is in the forecast every day for the upcoming week.

"High humidity makes for some muggy nights, and along with lows that range in the low 70s, it will continue to feel very tropical outside," News 6 weather anchor Danny Treanor said.

Morning sunshine will give way to afternoon thunderstorms Monday. Highs will be in the low 90s Monday for inland counties and high 80s at the beaches. Sea breeze collisions will create a 50 percent chance of rain.

Pinpointing the tropics:

"In the tropics, we are watching two areas of interest," Treanor said. "One is way out in the Atlantic and is not a threat to the U.S. for more than a week."

However, there is a low off the Yucatan coast that is creating a lot of rain just south of Cuba. The low is expected to get into the Gulf of Mexico sometime Monday, where the warm waters will help it grow. It has a 90 percent possibility of become a tropical depression.  Hurricane hunters will fly into it Monday. As of Sunday afternoon, forecast models have the storm staying away from Florida, but it could be a possible threat to Mobile, Alabama, and Brownsville, Texas. Its course is subject to change.

"Happy Father's Day and keep your umbrella handy," Treanor said.
