"Most of the big showers are slowly moving east. They will be around for at least the start of the Friday night football games," Local 6 chief meteorologist Tom Sorrells said.  "After the sun sets, the showers slowly wind down."

The overnight low in Orlando will be 76 degrees.

Sorrells said the forecast for Saturday and Sunday will be identical to Friday:  highs in the mid-90s, with a 40 percent chance of rain.

"Labor Day Monday look for more of the same with a high of 94, although rain chances slump to 30 percent," Sorrells said.

He added that most of next week looks like an "average run" for the first week of September, with highs will be in the low 90s and a chance of storms every afternoon.
