The highest storm chances will be from Orlando and point west late in the afternoon and early evening. East of Orlando, toward the I-95 corridor, will be on the drier side.

Future radar

Highs climb into the low-to-mid 80s Saturday. Higher storm chances return Sunday, but the entire day won’t be a washout.

If your plans take you to the beach, be mindful of a very high rip current risk. The ocean will also be rough with waves on the order of 4 feet.

More heat returns to Central Florida next week with highs climbing into the low 90s.
