Sea breeze storms soak Central Florida

Rain chances increase over weekend in Orlando area


ORLANDO, Fla. – Another round of sea breeze storms are drenching Central Florida on Friday.

"As an area of low pressure moves away from Texas and into the middle of the country, stretching through the Gulf of Mexico, it will help spread increasing rain chances here," News 6 meteorologist Troy Bridges said. "But most of the rain we see will be a result of the east and west coast sea breezes."

Orlando will see a high near 92, with a 60% chance of rain. The average high on this date is 90. 

The overnight low will be in the mid-70s. The average low for this time of year is 71.

"Some storms could be strong, with gusty winds, lightning and heavy rain, much like Thursday," Bridges said.

Rain chances increase to 70% Saturday and 80% Sunday. The chance of rain will be 60% most of next week.

"The wet season is upon us," Bridges said.

Since January 1, Melbourne has a surplus of 6.15 inches of rain compared to its average yearly total. Orlando has a deficit of 4.15 inches. Daytona Beach is down 4.22 inches. Sanford has a deficit of 3.88 inches this year.
