ORLANDO, Fla. — An area of high pressure kept us in an onshore flow Wednesday afternoon that had us breezy at times.

We enjoyed a mostly sunny day with a few clouds adding texture to the afternoon sky. Highs were slightly above average in the mid to upper 80s.

Under a partly cloudy sky overnight, we’ll be on the lookout for patchy areas of fog late.

More sun to kick off our Thursday, but a disturbance in the Gulf of Mexico will spread a few clouds in our direction in the afternoon, and produce enough instability for about 40-pecent coverage of showers and embedded storms.

Not everyone picks up rain, but those who do could see brief downpours and lightning. Highs are back into the upper 80s.

Sea breeze interactions Friday through Monday, including Mother’s Day, will lead to a 20 to 30-percent daily storm chance, with highs into the upper 80s and low 90s.

Beach and surf forecast

Poor to fair conditions in our surf Thursday, thanks to a rising northeast swell. Wave heights climb to around three to four, occasionally five feet in the afternoon, so you may be able to catch a few.

The rip current risk remains moderate, so be careful when getting in the water. The UV index is still extreme, so under 10 minutes to burn.
