Storms sweep by way of elements of central Florida

Storms sweep through parts of central Florida

ORLANDO, Fla. – Did the storms keep you up last night? A late onset of storms lasted into the evening hours on Sunday, with very heavy rainfall and a lot of thunder, lightning and localized flooding on the streets of the area.

Central Florida will see this all over again on Monday and in the next few days.

The heaviest rain does not start until after 5 p.m. on Monday and storms will continue into the evening hours.

The east and west coasts of Seabreeze will drive storms inland from the beaches. As the ocean breeze interacts, the stronger storms develop into the night hours. On Monday, expect 60% rain cover in the afternoon and 30% rain cover in the evening.

Before the rain comes, temperatures reach 95 degrees and feel more like 110 degrees.

The rain probability will be even higher for the rest of the week with 80% on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. End the working week with 70% rain coverage on Friday and on the weekend.

In Orlando we had a high of 95 on Sunday. The average high is 92. Yesterday’s record high was 99 in 1987.

Orlando received 1.34 inches of rain on Sunday, bringing the deficit to 1.41 inches since January 1. Orlando has a 4.64 inch surplus as of June 1.

The record high for August 10 and Orlando is 98 in 1917.

Locating the tropics: The next named storm has a 60% chance of developing

Showers and thunderstorms continue to show signs of organization associated with a violent tropical wave located several hundred miles west southwest of the Cabo Verde Islands. The ambient conditions are expected to be somewhat conductive for additional development and a tropical depression likely to form on the next or second day as the fault generally moves west across the tropical Atlantic at a speed of 15 mph. Conditions are expected to become less conducive to development by the end of the week.

The National Hurricane Center gives this low a 60% chance of development over the next two days and a 60% chance of development over the next five days. If the system gets a name, it’s Josephine. The next storm named after Josephine will be Kyle. After that it will be Laura.
