Rain and storms in the forecast for Tuesday

ORLANDO, Fla. – There's a high chance of rain Tuesday across Central Florida, with the chance for some storms to turn severe. 

"A warm front continues to lift north, dragging a pool of deep moisture into the region," News 6 meteorologist Candace Campos said. "Models are showing high rain chances, with heavy downpours through the night."

Some areas could see up to 1.5 inches of rain, especially from Orlando and to the north.

"The threat for severe storms remains low," Campos said.

The warm, moist southwest flow will produce a humid day, with above-average temperatures in the upper 80s.

"Another front will arrive by Tuesday and into early Wednesday morning," Campos said. "Bands of showers and isolated storms will redevelop, producing an additional 1-2 inches with localized higher amounts possible."
