Once again, rain chances will increase through the day on Tuesday. Expect a 90% coverage of rain in the afternoon. The energy and dynamics that we had in place Monday, which led to the severe risk, is not as prevalent. While we will have heavy downpours, the risk of strong storms is much lower.

Storms early Tuesday prompted the closure of the FEMA vaccination site in Orlando. The site was closed around 7:30 a.m. and reopened before 9 a.m.

In addition, Universal’s Volcano Bay will close at 4 p.m. Tuesday due to inclement weather.

Expect a high temperature in Orlando of 76. The average high in Orlando on this date is 83. The record high is 96, set in 1908.
