"That means most of the day you can expect temperatures in the 50s across Central Florida," Bridges said.

The average high for this time of year is 74.

A frost advisory is in effect for Marion and Sumter counties from about 12 a.m. to around 8 a.m. Wednesday.

"We will stay dry through Wednesday and gradually warm into the low 70s on Wednesday afternoon after starting out in the 30s and 40s Wednesday morning," Bridges said.

By Thursday, Orlando will see a high of 72, but moisture works into the atmosphere, creating a 30 percent coverage of rain.

Rain chances jump to 80 percent on Friday, with a high of 74.

The chance of rain tapers off to 30 percent on Saturday. Weekend highs will be near 70.
