ORLANDO, Fla. – Just as our lawns were starting to smile again, the widespread rain of the past few days will be shutting off for a time. Other than a few storms Sunday, most of Central Florida will be dry.

Highs will top out around 90 degrees under a partly cloudy sky. The highest rain and storms chances will be along and to the west of Interstate 4 and especially along Interstate 75.
