🍁☀️ It’s fall, but summer-like weather returns soon

ORLANDO, Fla. – Hey friends, it’s meteorologist Troy Bridges here. Are you loving this cooler, drier weather?

We are headed right back to our typical summer storms very soon.

Expect rain chances to increase Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Here’s your pinpoint forecast.

The storms that we see Friday and the weekend will mainly be summer-like in nature as we pinpoint the east and west coast sea breezes battling it out.

I told you the wet season wasn’t over just because fall arrived at 9:30 a.m. Tuesday.

Picture it: Florida. End of September 2004. There’s no gas and the state has now been deemed the “plywood state” in news headlines nationwide. Yes, that’s a Golden Girls reference and if you said 2004 was the year four hurricanes struck Florida, you’re absolutely right.

I was chatting with Chief Meteorologist Tom Sorrells about it earlier. Check out what he had to say about that year by clicking here.
