Clear, chilly evening ahead for Central Florida

Spring arrives Monday morning


ORLANDO, Fla. – "There were a few clouds Sunday morning that burned off and allowed the sunshine in," News 6's Danny Treanor said. "Almost a perfect day, except for the winds."

Windy conditions, along with some gusts up to 20-plus mph, caused the weather service to issue red flag warnings for most of the interior counties until 7 p.m. Sunday. A high danger exists due to low humidity and brisk winds, and the winds are dangerous to boaters. There is also a small craft advisory until 10 p.m. Sunday. Conditions are expected to improve Monday.

Under clear skies, temperatures will drop to 52 degrees in Titusville, 51 degrees in Orlando and 43 degrees in Ocala.

Monday will be sunny, with highs of 77 degrees in Orlando, 73 degrees in Melbourne and 71 degrees in Daytona Beach.

"More of the same until Thursday, which has a 30 percent chance of rain," Treanor said.

Sunshine will be back again in time for next weekend.

"Spring arrives Monday morning, so enjoy your last day of winter," Treanor said.
