Moderate showers fell across the Orlando area Tuesday morning, and more strong storms are likely later in the day.
"Storms will develop each afternoon this week," Local 6 meteorologist Troy Bridges said. "Some storms will be strong, with winds gusting greater than 40 miles per hour."
Tuesday will round out the month of April, which is typically the driest month of the year in the Orlando area, but this year it will likely rank among the top 10 wettest Aprils for Melbourne.
Rain chances stand at 50 percent for Wednesday and Thursday.
High temperatures will be in the mid-80s for Orlando into the weekend. Lows will hover near 65 degrees.
