Thursday forecast: Above average tempertures; weekend rain on the way

ORLANDO, Fla. – The above average temperatures continue Thursday in Central Florida, News 6 meteorologist Candice Campos said.

Thursday morning will start with some fog which will clear into a sunny sky.

It will  be nice and dry during the day with a slim chance of rain in the morning -- less than 10 percent.

Temperatures throughout the day will remain well above average with a high of 80 to 82 degrees. The average for this time in January is in the mid 70s, Campos said.

Patchy fog will develop Thursday evening around 8 p.m. and the temperature will drop slightly to 68 degrees by 10 p.m.
