Stiff breeze, cooler temperatures in Central Florida

Winds blow at 20 mph in Orlando area

ORLANDO, Fla. – A day after storms prompted severe weather warnings in Central Florida, things will begin to settle down.

The front has moved to our south," News 6 meteorologist Troy Bridges said. "That means we are starting off with a breeze out of the north at near 20 mph."

The wind will calm down into the afternoon hours, going from 20 mph to 10 mph out of the north.

"That light, north breeze will continue to bring in dry air for the afternoon on Thursday," Bridges said.

Expect lots of sunshine as the day progresses, and there's no chance of rain.

The high in Orlando on Thursday afternoon will hit 73, which is the average high on this date.

"Friday looks good: warmer, with lots of sunshine and a high of 76," Bridges said. "We will see changes by the weekend."

Rain chances return at 40 percent Saturday afternoon as a new front approaches.

"The front will not be strong, although there is a chance for a few storms," Bridges said.

The high will be 79 on Saturday and 80 on Sunday.
