The good news is that a warmup is on the way.

"As the dry air continues to build with an area of high pressure dominating the forecast, we will have lots of sunshine through the afternoon," News 6 meteorologist Troy Bridges said.

The high temperature in Orlando on Tuesday will reach 72 degrees, which is the average high for this time of year.

Rain chances stay out of the picture altogether as high pressure dominates for the rest of the week.
