It's Finally Starting To Feel Like Hurricane Season In Central Florida

Back-to-back days of thunderstorms continue across The Sunshine State.
Central Florida Weather 15 Day Forecast Calling For Unending Rain

If you want to get beach time in during the summer in Florida, you’ve got to hit the sands early before the rain strikes. Usually, you can get a few good sunny hours in before the midday rainstorms roll through, but this week, even that might not be enough. The 15-day forecast for Central Florida is calling for rain, rain, and more rain, with no end in sight!

Summer seems to go one of two ways in the Sunshine State. If it’s not so scorching that you don’t even want to step outdoors, then it’s pouring, and you can’t go outside.

Such has been Central Florida’s dilemma for what feels like the past month, and the soggy saga continues through July.

The Weather Channel is forecasting scattered thunderstorms between a 60% and 80% chance every day for the next 15 days in the Orlando area, accompanied by high humidity and temperatures.

The National Weather Service warns that the storms will be moving across Central Florida at about 20 mph, increasing the severity of storms on the east coast when they interact with sea breezes.

Moderate rip currents always have the potential to become dangerous during these conditions as well, so always swim within sight of a lifeguard.

While temps are set to stay pretty steadily in the low 90s for the better part of the month, we can hope that the rain and predicted breezes will cool things off a bit, at least in the evenings.

You’ll want to keep an eye on that heat index, as well. While it differs each day, it’s pretty consistently been making temps feel almost 10 degrees hotter than what it actually is.

A heat advisory is in place for Sumter County, with a feels-like temp that could reach up to 109 F just west of Orlando, nearly as hot as one of the hottest places on Earth, Death Valley.

Rain or shine, you’ll want to keep those umbrellas handy and make sure your hurricane prep list is up to date, too. Florida's weather can often times change on a dime.
