Rain on tap through Sunday evening, into week ahead
Parts of Central Florida could receive 3+ inches of rain
ORLANDO, Fla. – "Keep your umbrella handy and don't be surprised if a flood advisory is issued sometime over the next three days from excessive and heavy rainfall as a wet pattern settles in over the area," News 6 weather anchor Danny Treanor said.
The flow of strong tropical air the Gulf of Mexico will continue to keep the chance of rain in Central Florida in the 60-70 percent range, meaning that 2-3 inches of rain could fall. Some areas could get even more.
