Tuesday afternoon, the National Weather Service issued a tornado warning in Marion County and it was lifted 30 minutes later.

There's an 80 percent coverage of rain in Central Florida, and high temperatures will reach the upper 80s on the second full day of fall.

“We’ll have waves of rain with plenty of tropical moisture from the Gulf in place,” said Local 6 meteorologist Troy Bridges.  "A stalled front to the north is keeping the rain from moving out."

Rain chances stand at 70 percent on Wednesday but drop to 30 percent by Friday and are even lower over the weekend.

High temperatures will remain in the upper 80s for the rest of the week.
