Orlando Airport

Significant rain is expected in Central Florida this week. Starting on Tuesday, June 11th, the chance of rain will be 80% and that number will stay above 60% all the way through Sunday.

According to Click Orlando, the same area of tropical moisture that will be causing this rain is currently under watch from the National Hurricane Center (NHC). It’s an area of low pressure over the eastern Gulf of Mexico, and the NHC is watching it for tropical development. The system will travel across Florida, but as it hits the Atlantic, conditions may be favorable for it to develop. We’ll keep you in the loop if the possibility of a larger storm seems high.

Hopefully, this rain will be enough for Disney World to reopen the Sassagoula River Cruise boats that run as transportation between Disney Springs and the resorts in that area. They’ve been closed for a while because the water level has been too low, so our fingers are crossed for a little help from the weather!
