Rain possible in Central Florida all day Sunday

Central Floridians can expect to see rain all day Sunday, starting in the overnight hours and continuing in through the evening.

"You’ve probably learned to keep your umbrella handy with the recent rains, and Sunday will be no different," said WFTV meteorologist George Waldenberger.

Flood advisories 

Localized flooding will be a possibility as wet weather continues to move through a saturated Central Florida. 

Flood advisories were issued for parts of southern Lake and western Orange counties Saturday afternoon as storms continued to drench an already saturated Central Florida.

According to the flood advisory, some areas that could experience flooding are Apopka, Ocoee, Winter Garden, Tavares and Mount Dora.

The flood advisory was in effect until 4:30 p.m. 

Eastern Seminole and central Volusia counties were also under a minor flood advisory until 4:15 p.m. 

Weekend's forecast

The storms' pattern will change on Saturday, as the high over the Atlantic will skid west and the "tropical moisture highway" will be rechannel right over Florida. 

 

Do you see the high moving west? Well, you can thank it for driving the moisture stream back over #Florida. Pronounced showers & storms this weekend. Saturday will start out dry, then storms develop mainly E to W. Outdoors in the morning inland, move indoors by noon. #stormalert9 pic.twitter.com/5Tz3OHGdpA — Irene Sans (@IreneSans) May 19, 2018

 

Showers and storms during Saturday morning will be focused along the coast. By the beginning of the afternoon the storms will arrive to inland counties and continue to affect most of Central Florida during the rest of the afternoon. The rain-showers will gradually decrease after sunset. If you have plans outdoors inland, make sure to stay weather aware, lightning and torrential rain can arrive quick.

This week some parts of Central Florida have received over 8 inches of rain. After this weekend, 12 inches of rain in total are possible. Expect amount to range between two to four inches through the weekend. With the already saturated ground, any showers could really produce flooding. Stay away from flooded roadways. Six inches of accumulated rain could make a car stall out and 12 inches can make most cars float away.

ULA workers vote to end strike over new contract

Hundreds of United Launch Alliance employees with the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers voted to end a strike that began earlier this month, according to a company news release. 

"We are pleased that the IAM represented employees have ratified this agreement that is so critical to continuing ULA's success," said Tory Bruno, ULA president and CEO. "The represented employees’ contributions have propelled ULA forward in delivering critical capabilities for our nation and our customers.”

Negotiations on the new contract began on April 16 and ended April 26—which workers voted to reject on May 6, opting to go on strike. 

Following meetings last week, union negotiators recommended the new contract and members voted to accept it.

Putnam County boy's letter brings surprise visit from Chewbacca to school

A Putnam County fourth-grader received the surprise of a lifetime Thursday after he wrote a letter the year before to Lucas Films talking about how much he and his family love "Star Wars." 

"George Lucas sent me a FedEx package filled with 'Star Wars' stuff. I got an original Luke Skywalker figure that's from him," said Wyatt Farmer.

But that wasn't the only surprise for Wyatt. 

Representatives from Disney and Lucas Films showed up to Kelley Smith Elementary School Thursday with a special guest to further recognize Wyatt's love of "Star Wars."

"I didn't know he was that big!" Wyatt's mother, Amanda Farmer, laughed as Chewbacca entered the school's cafeteria. 

The crowded lunchroom erupted with screams of excitement as the giant, furry beloved Star Wars character walked inside. 

Chewie was soon surrounded by children for hugs and pictures and spent the rest of the afternoon walking through campus visiting classes. 

Farmer hopes Wyatt appreciates the magnitude of what he and the school experienced.

"I hope you will never forget this day because it's something you did. You wrote a letter and you did this for all of your friends," she said. 

"I won't," Wyatt replied.
