ORLANDO, Fla. – Sunday's weather is great for Easter egg hunts, but the lack of rain continues to produce a major fire danger for all of Central Florida. 

"No relief in the form of rain is expected in the next 5-7 days," News 6's Danny Treanor said. "In the last 51 days, Orlando has received 0.10 (inch) of rain."

Windy conditions prevail once again, adding to the fire danger and high rip current threat in the Atlantic Ocean.  Winds are expected to back down after midnight Sunday.

"Lows tonight will be dropping into the mild category and will range from 66 degrees in Palm Bay to 63 degrees in Orlando and 56 degrees in Ocala," Treanor said.

Monday's weather will be similar to Sunday's: a mixed sky of sun and clouds, with temperatures running a bit above normal. 

Titusville and Daytona Beach will reach highs of 80 degrees Monday, while Orlando reaches 85 degrees.

The next mention of rain in the forecast comes Thursday, with a small chance at 20 percent.

"The bottom line is that rain chances are low and the fire danger is high," Treanor said. "There are 5-6 more weeks before (the) rainy season arrives."
