ORLANDO, Fla. –  

If you liked Saturday, you're going to like Sunday.   

The forecast calls for less clouds, warmth and fewer showers. 

Saturday saw a high of 77 with a trace of rain.

Saturday night, when the winds drop down to very low or calm, patchy fog will be a possibility. Decreasing cloudiness and moderate temperatures will range from 57 in Ocala to 62 in Orlando to 60 in Palm Bay. Chance of rain tonight is 30 percent.

Not a lot will change for Sunday. It will still be cloudy, but the chance for rain is very low and very spotty.

Temps will be about the same as Saturday, in the 70s.

Sunshine returns big time for most of next week. In fact temperatures get up near 80 by Thursday.

Well, the groundhog has spoken. To the delight of many who live where it's cold, a beautiful spring will arrive early. Official 1st day of spring is March 20th. We have it good central Florida. Mid 70s here we come! Happy Groundhog Day.
