"Rain chances will be much lower into the afternoon and evening, just in time for trick-or-treating," News 6 meteorologist Troy Bridges said.

Expect a 20% coverage of rain through the afternoon on Thursday. After 7 p.m., rain chances drop to only 10%, with temperatures in the mid- and upper 70s through the evening.
Cooldown coming soon
After all the heat, Central Florida deserves a blast of cooler air, right? We may actually get that soon, according to Bridges, thanks to two fronts expected to approach the area in the next couple of days.
"After weeks of fronts not making their way all the way through Central Florida, we will see these fronts move all the way into South Florida, which will lead to cooler air heading into your Friday and especially into Sunday," Bridges said.

Morning low temperatures will be in the mid- and upper 60s for Orlando on Sunday and Monday and into the middle of next week. Some areas in northern zones, including Marion County, could feel temperatures drop into the 50s by Sunday morning.
Temperatures will gradually increase back into the low and mid-80s for the beginning of next week through the end of next week, with rain chances between 20 and 30%.
Pinpointing the tropics
Currently, subtropical storm Rebekah has maximum sustained winds of 45 mph and is moving east at 17 mph in the open Atlantic. According to Bridges, it is not expected to impact the United States.
