Cool start, very warm day in Central Florida

Highs stay in mid-80s in Orlando area for next few days

ORLANDO, Fla. – After a cool start in Central Florida, temperatures will soar into the mid-80s on Monday.

"Another front has moved well to our south, and we have the influence of high pressure across Central Florida," News 6 meteorologist Troy Bridges said. "The area of high pressure has shifted to the east, but it is bringing onshore winds that will kick up this afternoon near 20 to 25 mph out of the east-southeast. That breeze will try to bring on sure a couple of showers."

The chance for rain stands at 20 percent because of the ocean breeze, Bridges said.

Expect a high of 84 in Orlando, about 10 degrees above average on this date. The average high is 75.

The region warms up to 85 on Tuesday and 86 on Wednesday.

"We will be pinpointing a new front by the middle of the week, getting closer to Thursday," Bridges said. "That front comes in Thursday, but brings a cooldown by Friday."

Rain chances will increase slightly to 30 percent on Thursday, with a few thunderstorms.

"Behind that front, expect a high in the low 70s on Friday," Bridges said. "We will stay in the mid- and upper 70s through the weekend, with no rain and morning lows in the 50s."
