Most of Central Florida will be dry, breezy

Future radar Saturday

ORLANDO, Fla. – After a week or so of dry weather, slight rain chances return to Central Florida for the weekend.

A steady breeze from the Atlantic will help to generate a few showers and storms Saturday morning and gradually force them inland. The highest rain chances will occur closer to the coast.
