ORLANDO, Fla. – Whether your Super Bowl Sunday means an outdoor barbecue or an indoor takeout feast, Central Florida's forecast will probably work out in your favor.

Highs ranged from the low 70s over northern zones to the upper 70s closer to Orlando and Melbourne. An isolated shower or two is possible, but overall rain coverage will stay around 10 percent.

News 6 meteorologist Samara Cokinos urged boaters to use caution on the water. Seas will average between 3 and 5 feet, with a very high rip current risk in place. The risk will be in place for a few days at local beaches.

"Be safe and stay near a lifeguard," Cokinos said.

Those heading to parties before the Super Bowl's 6:30 p.m. kickoff will feel temperatures in the low 70s. 

"Make sure to bring a light jacket," Cokinos said. "After the game, it will be a tad cooler outside in the mid-60s."

Make sure to tune in to News 6 to watch the big game, along with a special new commercial just after halftime.

News 6 meteorologist Danny Treanor said Sunday night will be mostly cloudy with temperatures staying mild, ranging from 54 degrees in Ocala to 58 degrees in Orlando and Palm Bay.

"It will be humid and plenty of fog is likely," Treanor said.

Overnight lows will be in the upper 50s. Patchy fog will form again into early Monday morning. Some spots could see dense fog develop through the mid-morning.

"Plan on a little extra drive time on your morning commute," Cokinos said.

Patchy fog will be around every morning through the midweek. 

Monday will see more sunshine than today and temperatures will return to the 70s.  

No major rainfall is expected in the upcoming workweek, but later in the week, temperatures will flirt with the 80-degree mark.
