Winds continue to keep rip tide chances high

Seas building with moderate chop


ORLANDO, Fla. – High pressure will continue to slide towards the Atlantic, veering our winds from the Northeast to east on Saturday.

Strong pressure gradient will maintain breezy conditions for most of Central Florida this weekend. The winds will keep the increased threat of rip currents along east coast beaches, along with seas building between 4-5 feet with a moderate chop.

This consistent weather pattern will keep temperatures near to above average in the mid to low 80s for the next few days, along with minimal rain chances (10-20 percent).

We could see a small change in our forecast by the middle and end of next week as a front slowly tracks south. Some models are showing this system limping into the area by Wednesday and Thursday. This could increase the threat for a few more showers in the forecast with slightly warmer conditions ahead of the front.
