Orlando will see a high of 89 on Friday. The average high on this date is 80.

Rain will not be widespread, but some areas could see some showers.

"A new front will approach this weekend and eventually stall over Florida," News 6 meteorologist Troy Bridges said. "For the weekend, we will see a mix of clouds and sun, and temperatures will be cooler because of the clouds and front."

Rain chances increase to 50 percent on Monday, with a high of 83.

By the middle of the week, a new front will slide through Central Florida and bring a major cooldown.
