Showers, storms possible Monday in Orlando area

Continuing to feel extra hot, with rain chances at 50% Monday

ORLANDO, Fla. – All the strong thunderstorms are out of here after a fairly active late afternoon Sunday.

The official high Sunday was 93 degrees, which is right around average for this time of year.

Light to moderate rain across the interior will be gone by midnight. Expect partly cloudy skies in the mid-70s late Sunday night.

On Monday, it won't take long for things to heat up. Highs will range from around 90 degrees at the coast to 92 degrees inland. It will continue to feel extra hot with continued high humidity.

Beachgoers: Get your feet on the sand early in the day. Showers and a few thunderstorms will start to pop up around noon and hang around for a few hours before storms progress back inland later in the day.

Rain chances are at 50% Monday and will go up to 70% by the middle of the workweek. As a weak front settles to our north, the pattern of rain will shift to more active afternoons along the coast.

Late in the week, another shift will happen with the rain pattern. The storms will begin to track more from the east to west, much like what has been happening for the past several days. The heat remains near average in the low 90s each day.

Tropical Update

There is a weak tropical wave that has a small chance of development as it moves west and then turns to the northwest. While development is not favorable at 10% over the next five days, it will bring enhanced rain chances over South Florida and into the Space Coast by the middle of the week. Heavy rain will be most likely and could add up fast with slower-moving storms.
