Our typical wet season weather pattern continues today and through the balance of the workweek with the recurring chance of afternoon storms. Hot, muggy conditions will be paired with partial morning sunshine before storms start to develop with the inland-moving sea breeze. Ample daytime heating will help temperatures climb into the low 90s inland, but combined with the humidity, it will feel more like the upper 90s and low 100s. The average high for this time of year in Orlando is 92 degrees.
Storms will initiate in the afternoon as isolated pockets build across the interior and slowly drift from southwest to northeast. As the sea breeze fronts work inland and collide, that may fuel some more intense storms, especially along and east of Interstate 4. Any storm today could contain frequent lightning and heavy rain. Localized flooding may occur in poor drainage areas, or spots that have been hit hard with rain in recent days. Much of the storm activity will diminish after the sun sets. Clouds will linger with areas of fog possible by daybreak. It will be a mild, muggy overnight with lows in the mid 70s for most.
Plan on keeping the umbrella close by and have some indoor activities lined up for the afternoons for the next several days as there will be no significant break in this weather pattern anytime soon. By the weekend, some slightly drier air may work in to help lower the coverage of afternoon storms, but the chance will still be there for storms to form each day. Highs will continually run in the low to even mid 90s inland with readings closer to 90 degrees at the coast.
In the tropics, the last advisory was issued on the remnants of Tropical Depression Two. As of 11 a.m., the depression has degenerated into a tropical wave. Elsewhere in the Atlantic basin, there are no signs of additional development expected within the next five days.
