"Big changes are on the way as a front approaches," News 6 meteorologist Troy Bridges said. "This will be a strong front for Central Florida, and there is the risk of a couple of strong to severe storms late Wednesday night into early Thursday morning."

Rain coverage will be 90 percent for the first half of Thursday. Highs will reach the low 70s.

"As this new front approaches, there will be issues at the beaches," Bridges said. "There is a small craft advisory in effect until 4 p.m. Thursday as winds will be out of the east at 20 knots. Seas will be 6 to 8 feet, and rip currents will be a danger for the next couple of days."
