Rain chances take a dip in Central Florida

Highs to reach mid-90s Friday and Saturday in Orlando

ORLANDO, Fla. – It actually might not rain Thursday in many areas of Central Florida.

"After several days of widespread storms, we are pinpointing some drier air building in," News 6 meteorologist Troy Bridges said. "This will lead to lower range chances at 30%. That does not mean it won’t rain, it just means we won’t see as much."

Bridges said there's a risk of a couple of stronger storms, with high winds, lightning and rain.

The high will reach 92 in Orlando. The overnight low will be 76.

Rain chances dip to 20% Friday and Saturday, with highs reaching the mid-90s.

Rain chances jump back to 40% Sunday, with a high of 92.
