Here comes the rain again

Orlando to see high near 90 degrees

ORLANDO, Fla. – Another day, another round of rain in Central Florida.

Orlando will see a high of 90 Friday, with a 70% coverage of rain.

The average high on this date is 92. The record high is 101, set in 1918.

"We have what we call outflow boundaries across Central Florida. These are like mini-fronts that help fire up showers and storms once we heat up the atmosphere in the afternoon," News 6 meteorologist Troy Bridges said.

Heavy downpours are expected at afternoon bus stops and on the drive home, Bridges said.
