Warm last weekend of 2018 will lead into foggy night

Some areas nearing historical record heat


ORLANDO, Fla. – The last weekend of 2018 is predicted to stay warm, in true Central Florida fashion.

Areas of dense fog from coast to coast are expected Saturday night, with visibility dropping as low as a quarter-mile in spots.

Above-normal temperatures will continue, along with the return of moisture, making it warm and sticky.

Low temperatures Saturday night will range from 63 degrees in Ocala to 67 degrees in Orlando and Palm Bay. Little to no rain is expected.

Patchy fog is expected until the sun can burn it off by 9 a.m. It will be mostly sunny the remainder of the day with temperatures way above the normal 71 degrees.

"Highs could reach 85 degrees and possibly threaten the record high," News 6 meteorologist Danny Treanor said.

No weather problems are expected on New Year's Eve -- just more warmth and humidity. Temperatures Monday night will be in the 70s prior to midnight.

Continued warm is expected for New Year's Day, with the next good chance of rain coming Thursday and some cooler temperatures expected to arrive Friday.
