Scattered showers dampen Central Florida

Front to cool temperatures for weekend

ORLANDO, Fla. – Scattered showers greeted Central Floridians on Wednesday morning.

"High pressure continues to dominate the forecast, which will lead to a windy afternoon and off and on showers," News 6 meteorologist Troy Bridges said.

Expect winds out of the east-northeast, gusting near 20 mph.

"There will be a mix of clouds and sun as more moisture works into the atmosphere," Bridges said.

Afternoon highs will reach 84 degrees in Orlando. The average on this date is 81.

Rain chances will be 10 percent on Thursday and 30 percent on Friday as a new front moves in.

"This front will not bring a lot of rain, but it will bring changes in temperatures," Bridges said. "Expect a high of 79 on Friday and 76 on Saturday. Morning lows will be in the 50s."

Tracking the tropics 

There is a new low near the Lesser Antilles that has a 20 percent chance of development over the next five days.

"The bottom line: It will move away from land as it moves north and east," Bridges said.

Nov. 30 marks the official end of hurricane season.
