ORLANDO, Fla. – Record rain fell Wednesday in a Brevard County city, and more wet weather is falling across the region on Thursday.

"We saw plenty of rain Wednesday across Central Florida," News 6 meteorologist Troy Bridges said. "In fact, Melbourne received 2.6 inches of rain, a record for that date. The old record was 2.5 inches, set in 2008."

Orlando had 0.62 inches of rain. The city is 10.24 inches below the average rainfall total for the year.

"Rain chances will continue Thursday, mainly in the afternoon," Bridges said.

The coverage of showers and storms will be 50 percent.

Rain chances will be 40 percent on Friday through Sunday as the sea breezes come together.

Afternoon highs will be at the average of  92 degrees, but it will feel like 100 or higher.

Highs will be in the mid-90s from Friday through Sunday.
