High temperatures soar into 70s in Central Florida

Rain showers possible over weekend in Orlando


ORLANDO, Fla. – The first day of winter is right around the corner, but the weather outside isn't frightful -- at least not in Central Florida.

High temperatures will reach 73 degrees Wednesday in Orlando.

"We're tracking a front bringing low-level moisture in the form of fog and cloud cover for the start of Wednesday," Local 6 meteorologist Troy Bridges said.  "Rain will stay out of the forecast as there is not enough moisture to work with."

Sunshine will be prevalent later in the day, Bridges said.

Overnight lows all week will range from 50 to 57 degrees.

Rain chances won't return to the region until the weekend -- 20 percent on Saturday and Sunday.

Winter begins Sunday, when there's expected to be a high of 70 degrees in Orlando.
