Frost advisories issued for parts of Central Florida

ORLANDO, Fla. – With another cool start in Central Florida, a lot of residents are asking, "Where are the warm temperatures?"

Well, they're on the way, but not before a bit more chill.

"Marion County started Wednesday in the 30s, with most of the region dipping into the 40s," News 6 meteorologist Troy Bridges said.

Orlando will reach a high of 65 degrees. The average high on this date is 71.

"There will be plenty of sunshine, with light winds out of the north," Bridges said. "That north wind, even though it’s light, will bring more dry, stable air into Central Florida."

The next chance of rain comes over the weekend.

The overnight low Wednesday into Thursday will be in the upper 40s in Orlando, with frost advisories issued for some Central Florida counties.

Frost advisories will be in effect from 4 a.m. to 9 a.m. in Flagler and Marion counties, and from 3 a.m. to 8 a.m. in Sumter County.
