Rain falls in Central Florida

Orlando has 7-inch rain deficit this year

Troy Bridges' pinpoint forecast.

ORLANDO, Fla. – Central Florida received some much-needed rain Monday.

"After having a deficit of more than 7 inches since the beginning of the year, we will finally get help as a front stalls out to our north and plenty of moisture streams in from the east with an east breeze," News 6 meteorologist Troy Bridges said.

There's an 80% chance of rain Monday in Orlando, where the high will reach 86 degrees. The average high on this date is 86.

Rain chances will be 60% Tuesday and 70% Wednesday.

Highs will be in the upper 80s for the rest of the week.

Pinpointing the tropics

A nontropical low pressure system is expected to develop a longer frontal boundary over the central Atlantic ocean between Bermuda and the Azores.

"Gradual development of the system is possible while it moves slowly west," Bridges said.

A tropical or subtropical depression could form Tuesday or Wednesday before upper-level winds make it unfavorable for further development.

Troy Bridges' pinpoint forecast.

The National Hurricane Center is giving the low a 50% chance of development over the next five days.

Another nontropical low is forecast to develop over the western north Atlantic between Bermuda and the East Coast of the US.

It has a 30% to develop over the next five days.

Neither system will impact Florida.
