Weekend forecast: Rain chances remain low--for now

Moisture moves back in Saturday and Sunday but it won’t be a wash out

ORLANDO, Fla. – With dryer air in place, Central Floria is experiencing a lower rain chance at only 20% for the afternoon Friday.

However, that won’t last for long as humid air works back into the atmosphere by the weekend.

This weekend, we will see typical rain chances for Saturday and Sunday afternoon at 40% along with the sea breezes.

Next week rain chances remain between 30 and 40%.

If you have plans to grill or spend time outside Friday is a good day for it but it will be hot so drink plenty of water. Into the weekend, the first half of Saturday and Sunday would also be ideal for outdoor activities but later in the day those sea breezes will push in afternoon storms.
