Cooler air arrives for Sunday, but how long does it last?
Great weather for Daytona 500
ORLANDO, Fla. – A doubtful looking morning with some light sprinkles has turned into a nice afternoon and evening for the Cocoa Beach Seafood and Music Festival, and it could be even nicer Sunday.
A weak cold front will pass over the area Saturday night and bring some cooler temperatures for the next 24 hours. However, by Monday, we will be back to the 80s.
Overnight Saturday night, winds will shift direction and the cooler air will drop temperatures to 46 degrees in Ocala, 56 degrees in Orlando and 59 degrees in Melbourne. Winds will be brisk and breezy with gusts up to 20 mph.
It's all about sunshine Sunday with temperature staying in the low 70s. That is normal for this time of year. Gusty winds will add some discomfort and make boating doubtful, even on the bays and intercoastal. Rip current threat will also remain high.
It will not be as chilly Sunday night as temperatures rebound to the 60s. By Monday, any areas will see 82 or 83 degrees, and Monday might there is a 20 percent chance of rain.
The next best chance for rain is Thursday followed by cooler temps Friday. Next weekend is looking good -- at this time.
It will be great weather for the Daytona 500.
