Rain chances remain high for another week in Central Florida again. Lets look at Tuesday's forecast:

  • Locally heavy afteroon rain, winding down for the evening
  • Temperatures in the low 90s
  • Same pattern much of week
  • Watch tropical updates at :51 past the hour

We had widespread showers and thunderstorms again this afternoon with temperatures in the upper 80s and low 90s. Conditions will quiet down after midnight with the exception of a few lingering showers and mostly cloudy skies with temps in the mid to low 70s.

Tuesday we can expect a similar forecast with rain chances at 60 percent and temps climbing into the upper 80s.

With the great amount of moisture from some low level southerly flow; we have had widespread showers and storms throughout the afternoon.

Tuesday morning we will start out muggy with a mix of clouds and sun before showers and storms develop in the afternoon. With a southerly wind component, the sea-breeze boundary collision is expected to take place more inland, increasing rain chances inland versus the coast. Some of these storms could pack quite a punch producing some gusty winds, frequent lightning, and torrential downpours.

We now have tropical storm Bret near the Lesser Antilles in the Atlantic moving to the northwest at 30 MPH with sustained winds of 40 MPH, with him moving into a hostile environment there is the potential of him weakening within the next 48 hours.

We are also watching a tropical system in the central Gulf of Mexico that could become Tropical Storm Cindy within the next 12-24 hours.Advisories and warnings have already been issued for areas along the Gulf Coast in Louisiana.

Though we are not expecting any direct impact, there will be a significant amount of moisture in the atmosphere to keep our rain chances higher over the next few days.

Boating conditions won't be as favorable tomorrow with winds coming out of the southeast 10-15 knots in the afternoon. Seas will be 3-4 ft with a moderate chop along the inter-coastal. With the chance of isolated showers and storms in the afternoon, conditions can quickly become hazardous.

Unfortunately for the surfers, conditions will be poor with wave heights only coming in at 1-2 ft. If you plan on heading out the beaches, there is a high risk for rip currents so be sure to stay safe and swim near a lifeguard!
