ORLANDO, Fla. – While the weather will likely start going downhill for parts of the Gulf Coast and Mississippi River Valley, the weather in Central Florida will actually become nicer from Barry over the weekend.
Oftentimes right before and after a hurricane or tropical storm, the weather is as nice as can be. The reason for this is that on the outside of a hurricane, subsidance, or sinking air, occurs. When air sinks it tends to dry things out.
Rain chances dip:
This weekend, Barry will lash the northern Gulf Coast, but Central Florida will be under the influence of sinking air, keeping a lot of us dry.
