ORLANDO, Fla. – News 6 meteorologist Troy Bridges is pinpointing plenty of tropical moisture associated with Tropical Storm Fred.
Fred is heading closer to the Panhandle of Florida but it’s close enough to increase rain chances for the next couple of days to 70% across Central Florida.
“Grace will likely move into the western Gulf of Mexico in the coming days and not impact Florida directly,” Bridges said. “Tropical depression Eight will also stay away.”
