There's a good chance of strong storms in Central Florida.


More strong storms moved across Central Florida on Tuesday.

"The main threats will be strong winds with gusts greater than 50 mph, excessive lightning and very heavy rain -- up to 3 inches in a matter of couple hours," Local 6 meteorologist Troy Bridges said.

Rain chances will be at 60 percent later in the afternoon.

"Some of those storms will last through the evening hours," Bridges said.

The high temperature in the Orlando area will reach 91 degrees, which is near the average high of 92.  Overnight lows will be in the mid-70s.

There's a 40 percent chance of rain from Wednesday through the weekend.

Meanwhile, a tropical wave has formed off the coast of Africa.  It currently has a 40 percent chance of strengthening into a tropical storm.  If it becomes a tropical storm, it would be named Dorian.
