"The light, north wind builds into Central Florida, more dry, cool air will be a factor," News 6 meteorologist Troy Bridges said. "We're starting off in the 40s, 50s and 60s in Central Florida."

Highs across the region will reach the 60s and 70s.

"That will be much cooler than we are used to after warming near records in the mid-80s for the last couple of days," Bridges said.

Rain chances will stay out of the picture until Monday, when there's a 20 percent chance.

Expect highs in the upper 70s on Saturday and Sunday.

"If you are going to the tree lighting with the rest of us on the morning team, expect a cooler evening," Bridges said. "You may even want a light jacket or sweater as temperatures will be in the mid- and upper 60s around 7 p.m."
