...Hot today with some storms south of Orlando during the afternoon...


A drier and more stable airmass will be in place across areas from Orlando northward today. Across this area, little if any rain is expected today. Farther south, it will also remain rain-free this this morning, however the presence of greater moisture suggests that some showers and storms will form between early and late afternoon. With weak steering winds, storms will move little and will produce brief, but heavy rainfall, resulting in temporary, minor flooding. Lightning will also pose a risk. When thunder roars, go indoors.

Temperatures will be hot today, reaching the mid to upper 90s inland and lower to mid 90s along the coast. Heat index values will reach around 105 degrees across much of east-central Florida this afternoon. Limit exposure to the heat today and remember to remain hydrated.

...Thunderstorms with heavy rain over Okeechobee County will gradually dissipate...


A persistent cluster of thunderstorms with heavy rain over Okeechobee County between Basinger, Country Hills Estates and Fort Drum will move little and gradually decrease by 130 am.

Radar-based rainfall estimates show 2 to 3 inches of rain has fallen between Basinger and County Hills Estates, southwest to the Kissimmee River between 1100 pm and 1230 am. Another one inch is expected by 130 am, with localized, minor flooding likely. A flood advisory is in effect for the area through 230 am, to allow time for the run-off to lessen after the rain ends. Flooding is especially dangerous at night, turn around if you approach a flooded roadway.

...Isolated showers until just after midnight across Indian River and Okeechobee Counties...


A few showers have developed late this evening over Okeechobee County along a wind shift boundary, left over from earlier storms. Showers will occur into the early morning hours from around Sebastian to Fellsmere, Fort Drum and Basinger. The line of showers will drift slowly east, possibly reaching Winter Beach, Pointe West, Country Hills Estates and the city of Okeechobee before dissipating after midnight.
