ORLANDO, Fla. – After days of highs in the mid-80s, including some record-setting heat, changes are coming to Central Florida.

"We are pinpointing a front moving through Central Florida on Tuesday morning," News 6 meteorologist Troy Bridges said. "This front will eventually move out of Central Florida by the afternoon and early evening."

Bridges said there will be a few lingering showers ahead of the front.

"Expect a 40 percent coverage before 8 a.m.," he said. "Rain chances are down to 30 percent after that."

The high in Orlando will top off at 75, which is the average high on this date.

The overnight low will be near 50.

"Behind the front, temperatures will only be warming into the mid-60s on Wednesday and Thursday," Bridges said.
