ORLANDO, Fla. - It will be an up-and-down weekend in Central Florida, at least when it comes to temperatures.

The high on Friday is expected to reach 83 degrees in Orlando, with a 20 percent chance of rain.

"Drier air moves in for Saturday, with only a 10 percent chance for rain into the afternoon,' said Local 6 meteorologist Troy Bridges, who added that Saturday's high will also hit 83.

Overnight lows will be in the low 60s.

Then, things change.

"A weak front brings cooler temperatures by Sunday," Bridges said.

High temperatures will reach 72 degrees on Sunday, and there's a 20 percent chance of rain.  Overnight lows into early Monday morning will be in the mid-50s in Orlando, with cooler temps to the north.

Looking ahead, temperatures warm to near 80 degrees for Tuesday and Wednesday, with 40 percent rain chances for the so-called busiest travel day of the year.

Thanksgiving Day in Orlando will see highs in the low 70s with slight rain chances.
