Windy, slightly wet weekend expected in Central Florida
Spotty showers to linger into Saturday night
ORLANDO, Fla. – Winds are making beach conditions a bit rough in Central Florida this weekend.
The dangerous beach and boating conditions are due to high winds that also bring in some showers from the Atlantic Ocean.
Winds of up to 20 mph are possible, with gusts up to 30 mph, resulting in small craft advisories and high surf advisories to remain in effect until Monday. Waves near the shore are expected to be 7-10 feet.

The chance for rain will drop to 20-30 percent Monday and Tuesday, and temperatures will feel much like Saturday's.
Another cool front is expected to pass Tuesday and will usher in a drier and cooler three-day period.
"And thank you to all our Veterans," Treanor said.
