ORLANDO, Fla. - Rain returns to Central Florida as temperatures continue to feel like they're in the 100s.

"We're tracking higher rain chances Tuesday as a front moves through Central Florida," Local 6 meteorologist Troy Bridges said.  "The coverage of rain will be 50 percent from 3 o'clock in the afternoon until 6 o'clock."

High temperatures in Orlando will reach the mid-90s, above the average of 92 degrees.  It will feel like 101, however, before the rain moves in.

Drier air builds in after the front, Bridges said.

"Rain chances will only be at 30 percent for Wednesday and Thursday, with highs in the mid-90s," he said.

Rain chances will be at 40 percent for the weekend.

A tropical wave that is about 1,000 miles west-southwest of the Cape Verde Islands will strengthen, with a 70 percent chance for development in the next two days.

It will likely become a depression or Tropical Storm Bertha later this week.

"All long range computer models have it turning north near Bermuda in the next 10 day," Bridges said.
