"High pressure is dominating the forecast for the start of the week in Central Florida," said Local 6 meteorologist Troy Bridges.  "Rain chances stay out of the picture as dry air stays in place in the mid-levels of the atmosphere through Wednesday."

After starting Monday in the 50s, high temperatures in Orlando will range from 85 to 87 degrees through Thursday.  Overnight lows will be in the mid-60s most of the week.

There's very little chance of rain for the first three workdays this week.

"Slight rain chances return for Thursday at 10 percent and 30 percent for Halloween on Friday," Bridges said.  "Halloween will not be a washout, though."

Friday's high will be in the low 80s, and a front will make temperatures cooler for the weekend, with highs in the upper 70s.

This weekend also marks the end of Daylight Saving Time this year, so be sure to "fall back" an hour early Sunday.
