A slow moving wind shift line sliding across central Florida Tuesday split our area between deep atmospheric moisture and strong storms, and dry air aloft with plenty of sun.
Thunderstorm warnings were issued for several counties, including Orange and Osceola counties. Hundreds of power outages were reported by OUC, Duke Energy, and Florida Power and Light.
In Lake County, near the Polk County border, strong wind blew over an RV at the Lake Magic RV Resort near U.S. 192 and U.S. 27.
Six people, including two children, were inside the RV when it overturned at about 12:30 p.m.
Any evening storms still lingering end quickly, while the rest of central Florida enjoys a gorgeous evening.

High pressure builds into the region Wednesday, nudging dry air aloft over more of the peninsula. We’ll keep an isolated shower chance in southern Osceola and Brevard County due to the proximity of the front.
Overall, we’re forecasting a mostly sunny sky from Wednesday through next Monday, with highs either side of 90. Our next slight chance for a shower doesn’t enter the picture until potentially Sunday or Monday with sea breeze collisions.
Beach and surf forecast
We’ll have a decent setting for boaters, but surfers can expect poor conditions over the next several days thanks to a minor east-northeast swell.
Wave heights of one to two feet are in the forecast and a low to occasionally moderate rip current threat exists. The UV index is extreme, which means under 10 minutes to burn.
