Rough surf, roller coaster temperatures highlight week of weather
Orlando to see high in mid-70s on Monday
ORLANDO, Fla. – After a cool start, high temperatures will reach the mid-70s Monday in Central Florida.
Overnight lows will be in the mid-50s.
Expect clear to partly cloudy skies with a chance of some patchy fog toward sunrise Tuesday, News 6 meteorologist Candace Campos said.
"The biggest threat through midweek will be the rough surf," Campos said. "Large swells will continue to arrive at area beaches, creating high surf and a concern for locally moderate beach erosion."
Some beaches might close during high tides, depending on beach driving conditions.
- Melbourne Beach: 10:05 a.m. and 10:35 p.m.
- Cocoa Beach: 10:05 a.m. and 10:32 p.m.
- Port Canaveral: 10:08 a.m. and 10:37 p.m.
- Ponce Inlet: 10:43 a.m. and 11:11 p.m.
- Daytona Beach: 10:23 a.m. and 10:50 p.m.
"The peak of this event is expected Monday, with conditions slowly improving across the next several tidal cycles into Tuesday," Campos said. "Beach conditions remain hazardous, with a high risk for strong rip currents."
Tuesday's high in Orlando will reach the low 80s.
"A cold front will move into Central Florida, bringing a band of rain," Campos said. "Expect an area of convection over the Gulf of Mexico that will spread inland and bring a 60 percent chance of rain."
The high on Wednesday will reach the mid-70s before cooler temperatures on Thursday and Friday. Highs will be in the low to mid-60s. Lows will mainly be in the upper 30s to low 40s.
Reminder: daylight saving time begins early Sunday.
"Don't forget to spring your clocks forward one hour before heading to bed Saturday night," Campos said.
