ORLANDO, Fla. - Rain chances will be lower Thursday in Central Florida as high temperatures soar into the upper 80s.

"The chance of rain will be 30 percent along the coast," News 6 meteorologist Troy Bridges said. "We will see a little bit of drier air working in, and that will allow for more sunshine."

The high will hit 87 degrees.

Rain chances will be 20 percent on Friday and Saturday, but the chance of rain will increase by Sunday to 50 percent of the area.

Afternoon highs will remain in the mid- and upper 80s through the weekend.

The average high in Orlando on this date is 84 degrees.

Orlando received 0.28 inches of rain on Wednesday, putting the yearly surplus at 0.89 inches.

"There is nothing to pinpoint in the tropics, but keep in mind that the Atlantic hurricane season runs through November 30," Bridges said.
