WHAT IS THE WEATHER FORECAST AROUND ORLANDO TODAY?

It’s low tonight: 77 degrees
Tomorrow’s high: 94 degrees
Rain: 60% chance of a thunderstorm in the afternoon

MAIN WEATHER ISSUES:

Storms with torrential rain will roll in after lunch Wednesday with frequent lightning and gusty winds over 50 mph. The highest risk of storms in the Orlando metro will be from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Storms will track southeast and have no trouble reaching beaches and potentially severe thunderstorm status, with damaging winds being the biggest threat. Otherwise, the westerly flow brings high humidity (“swamp flow”) all week.

WHAT’S THE WEATHER FOR WALT DISNEY WORLD, UNIVERSAL AND SEAWORLD?

Another wet day with scattered thunderstorms throughout the afternoon. The rain can be very heavy at times, so watch that radar! Highs will climb into the mid 90s so make sure to stay hydrated.

WHAT IS THE WEATHER FORECAST FOR CENTRAL FLORIDA BEACHES?

Closer to the temperature records on the beaches… 90s to come with strong sun and off-shore flow. There will be a 60% chance of having afternoon storms on the beaches. Waves 1-2 feet, westerly winds in the morning, changing to southeasterly sea breezes, outflow 15 mph. Slight risk of rip currents.

LOOKING AHEAD:

Remaining heavy and becoming increasingly stormy. Fewer storms will develop over the weekend as drier air arrives. Trust the FOX 35 Storm Team and download the FOX 35 Storm Team app!

TROPICS:

A tropical wave in the southern Caribbean Sea is expected to drift northwest toward the Bay of Campeche and could become a tropical depression or tropical storm in that region of the southwestern Gulf of Mexico by Friday or Saturday. No threat to Florida as traffic would likely drift to Mexico or Texas.
