ORLANDO, Fla. – We have a hot and muggy day ahead of us but less rain.

Most of Central Florida will make it into the high 80s to the low 90s. Orlando will reach a high of 90 but the humidity will make it feel warmer.

By the afternoon we could see a 40]percent chance of showers with on and off cloud cover and sun throughout the day. There is a chance of some storms later with the possibility of some bands of rain pushing in frompotential Tropical Cyclone Three.

We will also see wind coming from the southeast at 10 to 15 mph gusting as high as 20 mph.

It will not be a bad day for the beach but be aware that with the higher winds, there is a high rip current risk and the seas are 3-feet to 5 feet. The high in Daytona will make it to 86 and the water temperature sits at 75.
