ORLANDO, Fla. - A cold front has stalled over Central Florida, causing rain and some severe weather.
There is some risk of storms across the southern portion of the region in particular. Damaging winds, lightning, and hail are the main threats. Isolated tornadoes are possible but the chances are low.
As a result, Tuesday is a FOX 35 Storm Alert Day.
The storms coming Tuesday will be closer to Orlando and Tampa and there is a marginal risk for strong-to-severe storms. The main concerns will be heavy rain -- an additional one to three inches -- gusty winds, small hail, and dangerous lightning.
Expect some hefty rain totals before the skies clear mid-week. An additional one inch or more, especially south of Orlando. Much of that will accumulate Monday and Tuesday in the heavy bands of rain moving across the viewing area.
Dry air will target the area by Wednesday as the front shifts south. This will be welcomed as rain chances dry up and sunshine returns to the area. Temperatures will also cool down.
Thursday will bring beautiful 70s for highs, some sortherly breezes, and plenty of sunshine.
