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.

Highs will be in the low 90s over the weekend.
There will be a moderate rip current risk at the area beaches through the weekend.
Hurricane season officially begins June 1. The first named storm of 2019 will be called Andrea.
