High pressure once again is dominating the forecast across Central Florida.

That means there will be sinking air and dry conditions. A slight south wind will bring in warmer air on Tuesday afternoon with highs in the low 80s.

More warm air builds in on Wednesday as high pressure continues to dominate. Expect a high of 85 degrees after the day starts out in the mid 60s.

A new front moves in by Thursday bringing a 40 percent chance of rain and highs in the 70s.

Expect highs in the upper 70s for Thursday and Friday. Temperatures will gradually warm back into the low 80s for Saturday, Sunday and Monday.

Rain chances will remain in the forecast on Friday at 20 percent and Sunday at 20 percent. The rip current risk will remain elevated for the end of the week and swells will be between 3 and 4 feet for boaters.

Spring breakers and anyone planning to go to the beach is advised to check with lifeguards before swimming.

The fire threat will also remain elevated through Wednesday. While rain will help a bit on Thursday we won't see quite enough to quash the fire danger.
