Storms threats Sunday
Storms threats Sunday

Rounds of heavy rain and potentially strong storms will move in from the Gulf of Mexico again Sunday as the center of Tropical Storm Cristobal moves toward Louisiana. The outer bands and tropical moisture associated with the storm will continue to impact Central Florida, however. The main threats in any storm that develops will be heavy rain and lightning. Damaging wind and even a short-lived tornado will also be possible.

The threat is not as high as Saturday, but storms look to develop along a weak boundary where winds out of the southeast converge into winds out of the east. The highest coverage of storms looks to be north of Orlando.
