ORLANDO, Fla. -

More record-cold temperatures were recorded in Central Florida early Thursday, but a warmup is on the way.

The temperature dipped to 41 degrees in Orlando, 2 degrees below the record of 43 set in 1955.  It's the second straight day that record lows were set in The City Beautiful.

Daytona Beach, at 39 degrees, also set a new record low, which was 40 degrees in 1971.

Melbourne also broke its record-low temperature.  It was 40 degrees early Thursday in the Brevard County city, besting the mark of 43 in 1971.

"This will likely be the last day of those record lows as a warmup is coming," Local 6 meteorologist Troy Bridges said.

The high on Thursday will reach the low 70s, with an overnight low in the upper 40s.

A gradual warmup leads to highs in the 80s by Easter Sunday.

There's no chance of rain through the weekend.
