The low into early Thursday morning will be in the low 40s in Orlando, with cooler temperatures for the northern Central Florida counties.

A warmup then arrives, with highs on Friday in the mid-70s.  The weekend will see high temperatures in the low 80s, with a 20 percent chance of rain.

Meanwhile, sleet, snow and freezing rain could be an issue for the Florida Panhandle into Wednesday morning.
