Election Day forecast: Picture-perfect weather

Orlando to see high near 80, with slim chance of rain

ORLANDO, Fla. – If you're headed to the polls in Central Florida, the weather won't be a problem.

"High pressure continues to dominate the forecast Tuesday in Central Florida," News 6 meteorologist Troy Bridges said. "Rain chances will be pretty much out of the picture, except for a 10 percent chance for a coastal shower or two."

Expect a good bit of sunshine mixed in with a few clouds through the day.

"At the surface, we will have a slight breeze, but it won't be as windy as the last few days," Bridges said. "The east breeze will be at 5 to 10 mph through the afternoon."

Afternoon high temperatures will be near 80 degrees for the next few days. The average high temperature for Orlando on this date is 80.

"A very weak front will move in Wednesday and drop temperatures a few degrees," Bridges said. "This front will bring minimal rain at a 10 percent coverage on Wednesday."

Expect a high in the upper 70s from Wednesday into the weekend.

Morning lows will be in the upper 50s by the end of the week.

Hurricane season runs through the end of November, but there is nothing currently brewing in the tropics.
