Lightning strikes were spotted in several areas in Osceola County on Tuesday afternoon.

Heavy thunderstorms were also spotted in Volusia County and Brevard County.

Additional storm threats will include lightning, torrential downpours and localized heavy rainfall around 2-3 inches.

Should higher cloud cover hold on across northern portions of east Central Florida long enough, highs in this area will likely not break out of the upper 80s. Otherwise, highs in the low 90s are expected before storms increase across the area.

Temperatures tonight will fall into the 70s.

An area of low pressure along a weak stationary front to our north will keep this unsettled weather pattern through Wednesday.
