Widespread showers are moving to the east this afternoon for Orange, Osceola, and Brevard Counties. Main threats are heavy rain and lightning. Stronger storms can have wind gusts over 40 mph. These storms are going to move over places that have already seen heavy rainfall this week, so this can quickly lead to ponding and localized flooding. Coverage hangs in the 80% range.
