Sea breeze showers expected in Orlando area
Rain chances stand at 40% on Mother's Day
ORLANDO, Fla. – Rain is in the Central Florida forecast Thursday.
"We are pinpointing changes as moisture and energy continue to build in from the Gulf of Mexico," News 6 meteorologist Troy Bridges said. "We will not see a big push of rain for the first half of the day."
Sea breeze storms, however, will try to develop, producing a few showers and thundershowers.
The coverage of rain will be 40%.
"There will be rough seas and a moderate rip current risk at area beaches," Bridges said.
Orlando will see a high of 89. The average high on this date is 87.
Highs will be near 90 through the weekend, with rain chances at 20% Friday and Saturday.
The chance of rain jumps back to 40% on Mother's Day.
"Wind off the ocean will help to push a few additional showers onshore for Mother’s Day," Bridges said. "Embedded, there will be a few thunderstorms, especially late in the day."
