Tropical Depression No. 8 likely to become tropical storm Sunday

Temps could feel as hot as 105 degrees Sunday

By Madeline Evans - Meteorologist

ORLANDO, Fla. - Tropical Depression 8 formed over the western Atlantic Saturday night and is forecasted to strengthen into a tropical storm by Sunday night. If it does, it will be Tropical Storm Gert.

"The forecast cone has it staying completely away from Florida, only causing some issues with the rip currents," News 6 meteorologist Madeline Evans said.

There is also a tropical wave just west of Africa. It only has a 20 percent chance of tropical development within the next five days, but there are favorable conditions that could help it strengthen in the next few days.

Meanwhile in Central Florida, Sunday's weather pattern will be similar to Saturday's.

Most of Central Florida will reach the 90s, but temperatures in some areas will feel as high as 105 degrees.

"We heat up because we don't see rain until later in the day," Evans said.

Orlando will reach a high of 94 degrees Sunday with a 60 percent coverage of rain. The afternoon will begin dry and partly sunny, but scattered showers will push into parts of Seminole, Volusia and Marion counties by 2 p.m and will become more widespread by 6 p.m.

"Since we get a lot of heating through the day, we could see some strong, slow moving storms mainly for Orange, Brevard, Osceola and parts of Volusia counties," Evans said.

Rain will make its way out of Central Florida completely by 10 p.m., leaving mostly cloudy skies and an overnight low of 76 degrees. Wind will be coming from the southwest at 5 mph.

Students heading back to school Monday can expect a high of 95 degrees and only a 40 percent chance of some afternoon showers.
