Hot, dry conditions remain Thursday evening, relief on the way

Cooler temps to arrive next week

By Danny Treanor - Meteorologist

ORLANDO, Fla. - There is no change Thursday evening in the current weather pattern for the next two days; however, rain chances are jumping up for Sunday and Monday, especially Monday, with a 50 percent chance of rain.

In the meantime, hot and dry conditions continue along with the drought problem and the burn bans, News 6 meteorologist Danny Treanor said.

Mostly clear skies are expected Thursday night, with overnight lows ranging from 60 degrees in Ocala to 61 in both Orlando and Palm Bay.

It will be sunny again on Friday, with temperatures topping out at 84 in Melbourne to 88 in Orlando and 82 in Daytona Beach.  Expect the same for Saturday.

“By Sunday, enough humidity and heat will combine along with an approaching cool front to bring the chances of rain up to 30 percent, especially in the afternoon,” Treanor said.

On Monday the front interacts with the moisture and will bring the chance of rain up to 50%.  Caution should be employed, as these rains may include some storms, plus thunder and lightning.

By Tuesday, some slightly cooler air will arrive.

Treanor said he would like to kindly remind everyone in Central Florida to not burn while the conditions for brush fires continue to plague the area.
