A front moved through Central Florida on Thursday bringing some rain, but the weekend is shaping up nicely.

The high temperature in Orlando on Friday will reach 79 degrees.  The overnight low will be in the mid-50s.

High temperatures will hover in the mid- to upper 70s on Saturday and Sunday.

Next week, temperatures will warm into the 80s.

Slight rain chances returns for Wednesday and Valentine's Day.
