ORLANDO, Fla. – Central Florida has a beautiful weekend ahead of it.
Temperatures will reach a high of 80 degrees Saturday, which is about eight degrees above the normal daytime high Central Florida sees this time of year.
There won't be much cloud cover, which should make for plenty of sunshine.
"Rain will not be a player in our forecast today, tomorrow, and even into the next work week," News 6 meteorologist Madeline Evans said.
Join the News 6 morning team for a Mardi Gras celebration in Titusville Saturday. The festivities will begin at 5 p.m.
Winds will be coming from the south at 5-10 mph throughout the day.

"If you are headed out for the night, you're going to want to bring a sweater or light jacket with you," Evans said.
Central Florida will see early fog Sunday. Sunday will reach a high of 82 degrees and be beautiful once again.
