ORLANDO, Fla. – Highs in the mid-80s return to Central Florida.

"High pressure will build in across the state of Florida, leading to virtually no rain chances," News 6 meteorologist Troy Bridges said. "With a slight east-northeast breeze, we can’t rule out one or two sprinkles. The coverage is 10 percent of the area."

Overnight lows will be in the mid-60s.

Thursday's high is expected to reach 87, but the weekend will be cooler.

Highs on Friday will be in the upper 70s. The overnight low early Saturday morning will be in the low 50s.
