The following photo shows hail in Daytona Beach blanketing the ground like snow.
Scattered showers will be around Saturday morning, but the morning won’t be a total loss. The widespread rain arrives closer to lunch and continues for much of Saturday afternoon.
Scattered downpours will continue into the pre-dawn hours of Sunday.
High temperatures will only top out in the mid-to-upper 60s Saturday morning and fall into the low-to-mid 60s for much of the afternoon. Lower 70s will still be possible through the early afternoon in southern Osceola and Brevard counties where the rain holds off the longest.
The weather will improve greatly Sunday, but it will still be cool and windy. Sunshine will increase for the afternoon with highs around 70 degrees. A gradual warmup returns next week.
Improvements to the allergy situation will be likely as this system moves in and out of Central Florida.
Pollen numbers start to surge back again early next week.
