Fog blankets Central Florida; tropical depression forms in Atlantic
Highs to reach mid-80s in Orlando
ORLANDO, Fla. – Fog blanketed Central Florida early Monday, but dissipate by 9 a.m.
"Our skies will continue to clear out, making way to partly cloudy conditions," News 6 meteorologist Candace Campos said. "A weak disturbance off the coast of Florida will keep a slight chance of rain across the area Monday afternoon, with highs running above average in the mid-80s."
A dry and warm trend will continue through the rest of the week until a weak cool front arrives on Friday.
Highs in Central Florida will be in the mid-80s. Overnight lows will be in the mid- to upper 60s.
"Don't expect a drastic cooldown this weekend, as highs will only cool to near 80 degrees," Campos said.

The depression does not currently pose a threat to land.
Officials said it's likely that the depression strengthens into Tropical Storm Rina as early as later Monday.
Hurricane season officially runs through the end of November.
