ORLANDO, Fla.- – The rich humidity continues to surge, making it feel more like early summer than early spring across Central Florida.

Highs again area-wide will flirt with 90 degrees on Thursday.

Early in the afternoon, however, we’ll be dodging a couple of showers and maybe even a rumble of thunder. The breeze will pick up again out of the west at 15-25 mph.

Wind

April 9 marks the first day, on average, that Orlando feels its first 90 degree day. To this point of 2020, there have been 10 days of 90-degree heat or hotter.

Friday, there will be a better chance of scattered showers and storms as a cold front moves through.

Highs Friday afternoon will be in the upper 70s and lower 80s.

A few scattered showers return Easter Sunday, with increasing rain and storm chances arriving later next week.
