Gray skies, high rain chances return to Central Florida

Rain chances steadily increase from west to east

ORLANDO, Fla. – All of Central Florida will see cloudy skies by Sunday afternoon, but the highest chances for washout potential reside closer to the Atlantic coast. Clouds will increase from south to north, so areas north of Orlando have a shot for a few hours of sunshine before thick cloud cover rolls in.

Rain chances ramp up through the morning and early afternoon, especially for areas along and east of Interstate 4.

Localized flooding in poor drainage areas along and east of Interstate 95 will be possible as several inches of rain could fall through early Sunday evening.

Future radar

Temperatures will struggle to climb out of the 60s with the added cloud cover, increasing rain and a breezy northeast wind at times.


Since it is expected to be on the drier side west of Orlando and along Interstate 75, expect temperatures to be running a few degrees warmer.

Rain chances aren’t zero in these areas, but they are significantly lower.
