Excessive daytime heating and an expected late afternoon seabreeze collision could prove to be the right ingredients for severe storms in the Attractions area late afternoon or early evening on Tuesday. Based on the early thinking, it’s more likely this seabreeze collision will happen closer to the east coast… so much so that the Storm Prediction Center’s area of marginal risk (level 1 out of 5) somewhat straddles the Orlando area and goes eastward to the space coast.
Our excessively hot (90-95) temps and high humidity (heat indices nearing 100-105) have made the atmosphere right to “pop” when given the opportunity. Barely-crawling severe and near-severe storms dumped nearly five-and-a-half inches of rain near Orlando International Airport in a four-hour period last night. This led to flooding on Narcoossee Road that trapped at least six vehicles. So far, no injuries have been reported.
