System off Florida brings more rain to Orlando area

Hurricane Center gives trough 10% chance of tropical development


ORLANDO, Fla. – Central Florida is getting more spotty showers Friday due to a system in the tropics that's being watched by the National Hurricane Center.

"We continue to pinpoint that trough of low pressure moving near the coast of Florida," News 6 meteorologist Troy Bridges said. "The bulk of the rain will eventually push up to the north and east and away from Florida altogether."

Orlando will see a high of 87, with a 60% coverage of rain.

The trough, which has a 10% chance of tropical development, will move away from Florida and along the Carolina coast.

Rain chances are 30% Saturday as most of the moisture pulls away from Central Florida.

"A new front approaches from the north, bringing rain chances to 50% Sunday and 40% Monday," Bridges said. "There will not be a big change in temperatures along the front."

Highs will be in the low 90s over the weekend.
