ORLANDO, Fla. — Afternoon storm chances are starting to decrease in Central Florida.
After seeing a 50% chance of afternoon storms the last few days, our area should see around a 40% chance of rain and showers Tuesday.
Before any potential storms fire up, the average high temperature should reach around 90 degrees.
Central Florida is forecast to continue to dry out and reduce the rain chances this week.
Hurricane Fiona gained strength overnight into a major Category 3 storm.
Fiona is hitting the Turks and Caicos Islands early Tuesday with winds around 115 mph.
Fiona will eventually move into the north Atlantic and into Eastern Canada.
Channel 9 meteorologists are also monitoring a tropical wave that will enter the Caribbean in two days.
This system will eventually develop into a tropical storm or hurricane.
It will be something to monitor closely for everyone in the Western Caribbean and Gulf, including Florida.
