The tropical depression is expected to regain strength to tropical storm status by Sunday and continue toward the Yucatan and Belize.

Some drier air moved in Saturday, making rain chances drop in Central Florida, but moisture will return by Sunday, causing the chance of rain to rebound to 40 percent.

"Warm temperatures will continue past sunset Saturday evening, but will eventually drop to 75 in Ocala to 78 in Orlando and 77 in Palm Bay," News 6 weather anchor Danny Treanor said.
