Storms move across Central Florida

Highest chances along Interstate 75, west of Orlando

Storm chances will be greater South of Orlando.

ORLANDO, Fla. – If you’re headed to the east coast beaches today you are in luck! A dominant east coast sea breeze will fire up just inland later Sunday, keeping the beaches dry but increasing rain and storm chances for areas inland.

Beach forecast

Scattered storms will start to develop after lunch along that sea breeze and start to increase in coverage as they move closer to the Interstate 4 corridor. The best chance for rain and storms Sunday will be west of Orlando, and especially along the Interstate 75 corridor where the east coast sea breeze and west coast sea breeze collide.

Storm chances will be at their highest in the late afternoon and early evening.

Highs top out in the upper 80s. The same setup will be around Monday.
