ORLANDO, Fla. -

The winds continue to be the big story Wednesday afternoon in Central Florida as they push from the north north-east at 10-20 mph with gusts up to 30.

Earlier Wednesday there were several wind gusts of better than 40 mph. Later Wednesday the winds will start to slow down.

"High tide along the coast occurred at 4:30 today," said Local 6 Chief Meteorologist Tom Sorrells. "There is a real possibility of more beach erosion into the night."

Look for the sky to remain mostly cloudy on Wednesday night with temperatures dropping to 52 in Orlando.

Large branches of an oak tree fell Wednesday morning onto Roscomare Avenue near Curry Ford Road in Orlando.  The tree landed on the hood of one car and the trunk of another.  Orlando city workers were working to removing the debris.

"My roommate woke me up and said there was a tree on my car and she wasn't lying," said Matt Javit. "The hood is pretty smashed and it's got a lot of scratches. The bumper is pretty messed up the windshield wiper is torn off ...yeah, it's pretty bad."

Meanwhile, in Flagler County, high winds were cited for bringing down some power lines.

Thursday the warm-up begins with the highs returning to the 70s. In Orlando the high will be 75.

Rain chances will rise for the weekend. Friday the high will be 78, rain chance 30 percent.

Saturday the high will be 80 degrees with a 40 percent chance of rain.
