For Tuesday expect lots of sun, but not much warmth. The high in Orlando will make to 56, which is 20 degrees below normal.

That will set up for an even colder night on Tuesday into Wednesday morning.

Sumter County and Western Marion County are under a Freeze Watch for Tuesday night into Wednesday morning. Those areas may go as low as 28 before we start to warm Wednesday.
