ORLANDO, Fla. – The dry air behind a tropical wave off our east coast will cause another day down for storms in Central Florida.
There will be 30% rain cover today, with most neighborhoods remaining dry this afternoon. High temperatures will be in the upper 80s along the coast, with the northeast wind keeping temperatures in check.
Meanwhile, high temperatures in the interior will reach the lower 90s. Chance for rain will start to increase on Monday. Coverage will jump to 70 percent on Monday as front stations north of Central Florida and winds begin to shift west. This will use more moisture to nourish more rain and storm cover to kick off the new week.
Temperatures will start in the mid-70s Monday morning and will rise into the upper 80s and lower 90s in the afternoon.
Rain cover will remain elevated until midweek. It will range from 50 to 60 percent by Wednesday. High temperatures will continue to reach the upper 80s and lower 90s. By Labor Day weekend, the more normal coverage of afternoon storms will return.
Rain cover will return up to 40 percent early next weekend. High temperatures will be in the low to mid 90's. Nighttime lows will be in the mid 70's.
Heavy rains and thunderstorms remain unorganized in connection with the low pressure trough that extends from south-central Florida to the northwest over the West. Environmental conditions are somewhat conducive to gradual development.
Tropical or subtropical depression is likely to develop within the next few days as the system moves away from Central Florida and northeast of the southeastern United States. The Hurricane Hunter Air Force Reserve is expected to investigate the area of troubled weather later today. The chance of development remains high for the next 2 to 5 days.
The Tropical Storm Dorian continues to move westward and lies to the east of the Lesser Antilles. It is expected to move west and northwest over the next few days.
Dorian is expected to be near the Lesser Antilles by Tuesday in the forecast tract. Dorian is thought to be close to hurricane force when he approaches the islands this week. Currently, this does not pose a threat to Central Florida, but we will continue to monitor its tracks and intensity over the next week.
The surfing conditions today will be poor. There will be winds from east to southeast. Wave heights will range from 1
Ocean temperatures were low by the mid-80s. The UV index is very high, which means that sunburn can occur in about 15 minutes or less.
If you are on a boat, there are chances of several storms. The winds will be from northeast with 5 to 10 knots. The seas will be moving 2 feet with a light chop along the inland coast.
