ORLANDO, Fla. – There are big changes across Central Florida as a new front approaches

After a dense start Wednesday in Marion and Lake counties, the fog should burn off after 9 a.m., News 6 meteorologist Troy Bridges sad.

Expect a mix of sun and clouds Wednesday as we will see one more day with temperatures in the mid-80s with a high of 84. The average high in Orlando is 75 degrees.

"We will expect only a coastal shower or two as dry air is in place for now," Bridges said. "A new front will approach Thursday and move in by Friday and stall out for a while before eventually moving to South Florida."

Expect highs in the upper 60s and low in the mid 70s Thursday with a 70 percent chance of rain through the evening Friday and lingering into early Saturday as this front is slowing down compared to previous forecast.

As the front clears Central Florida, much cooler air will arrive and highs will reach only into the 60s on Friday and 50s on Saturday. Saturday morning rain will clear out by the afternoon and temperatures will cool down considerably by Sunday with highs in the 50s and low 60s. Minimal rain is expected into next week and temperatures continue in the 60s Monday and Tuesday.

Tuesday's high in Orlando was 83 degrees. The average is 75 degrees, nowhere near the record of 91 back in 1928.

Central Florida is still in a rain deficit of 2.29 inches since Jan 1.
