There are a couple of different types of people when it comes to rainy weather: those who get genuinely excited and go searching for their favorite blanket and a good book as they listen to the pitter-patter of drops hit their window and those who just pine for the great outdoors while they wait for the storm to pass. Whichever one you are, prepare for super muggy and rainy Florida weather this week with humidity rivaling the Amazon rainforest, risk of flooding, and even a chance for a tropical storm.\nThe Hazardous Weather Outlook issued by The National Weather Service warns that the heaviest rains will wash over Volusia, Brevard, Seminole, and Orange counties.\nChances of rainfall will stay around 80% for the Sunshine State this week.\nThe Weather Channel reports current humidity levels for the Amazon Rainforest in Brazil at 79%. In Orlando, Florida, the humidity is expected to reach 87% this evening.\nCentral Florida will stay in a range of 69-80% humidity throughout the next 7 days, while the Amazon generally hovers between 77% during the dry season and 88% on average during the rainy season.\nMay 26 6:05 AM: A line of thunderstorms pushing through the Atlantic may produce gusty winds and waterspouts.
