ORLANDO, Fla. – It’s another day in Central Florida with temperature well above normal Tuesday, according to News 6 chief meteorologist Toms Sorrells.

As of 3 p.m., it was 80 degrees at Orlando International Airport.  The warming trend continues after the hottest year on Earth, according to NOAA and NASA data.

Wednesday night the sky will be partly cloudy with a low of 61 degrees. Patchy fog will develop late into the night. 

Most of the visibility concern will be for the areas north and west of Orlando. The same areas that have had the fog earlier this week are the places to watch again Thursday.

Thursday morning, the fog will burn off, and the sunshine will send the high temperatures back to 81 degrees.

The temperatures will remain the same on Friday with a sunny day and temperatures in the low 80s.

Saturday will see an increased chance of rain. Most the day will be dry, but rain chances build in the afternoon to 20 percent.

On Sunday, there is a 30 percent chance of rain.​

The real cooldown finally arrives Monday. The high on Monday will be 82 with a 30 percent chance of rain. But by Tuesday the high will drop to 71 degrees.
