79ºF

Beautiful week of weather continues in Central Florida

Orlando to see highs near 80 through weekend

ORLANDO, Fla. – After a foggy start in some areas, Central Florida will see another nice day.

"We have some low-level moisture in the atmosphere Thursday, which will lead to some patchy fog across Central Florida," News 6 meteorologist Troy Bridges said. "Most of that fog will be west and northwest of I-4 through 9 a.m."

High pressure will build in from the north across the southeastern U.S.

"Because of the drier air, with that big area of high pressure from the north, we will see minimal rain chances -- 10 percent for coastal areas," Bridges said. "One or two showers can’t be ruled out at inland spots."

Expect highs in the low 80s in Orlando. That trend will continue through the weekend.

The average high in Orlando on this date is 76. The record high is 86, set last year.

"Temperatures will be near 70 for the tree lighting festivities around 7 p.m. at Lake Eola on Friday night," Bridges said.

Thursday marks the final day of the Atlantic hurricane season.

"We are not watching anything in the tropics of any concern," Bridges said.
