High temps, humidity continue in Central Florida

Tropical Storm Ophelia expected to strengthen into hurricane

ORLANDO, Fla. - A slight sea breeze will continue to bring a slight chance for a couple of evening showers on Wednesday.

The coverage of rain is only 10 percent with temperatures near 80 as late as 11 p.m.

For Thursday, expect more of the same. The average high is 86 degrees for Orlando. Temperatures will feel a little hotter more like the mid to upper 90s because of low-level humidity.

Rain chances will remain slim with only 10 percent coverage on Thursday. A new trough of low-pressure will move in from the Bahamas on Friday through the weekend increasing rain chances up to 50 percent Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

High temperatures will continue to remain in the upper 80s through the weekend.

As we pinpoint the tropics, there’s only one area that were watching, News 6 meteorologist Troy Bridges said.

In the Atlantic Ocean, Tropical Storm Ophelia is moving east at 3 mph with winds up to 70 mph. Ophelia is not expected to affect the United States, but could hold together enough to strengthen into a hurricane later Wednesday or into Friday, and then eventually weaken to an area of low pressure as the system moves closer to the United Kingdom.
