ORLANDO, Fla. – The West Coast sea breezes fired up a strong round of storms Sunday afternoon in the Orlando area.

At one point, there was a significant weather advisory for Marion County.

Strong storms will fill in along and west of the Interstate 4 corridor Sunday evening. Be on guard for frequent lightning strikes and torrential rains.

Low-lying areas and flood-prone spots may require an area flood warning.

Look for the showers to be primarily over western Orange and Lake and counties. They will be slow-moving soakers and will linger into the late evening.

The low Sunday night will hold at 75 degrees.
