Another nice day in Orlando area, but about that weekend

Central Florida to see highs in low 80s

ORLANDO, Fla. – Friday will be another very pleasant day in Central Florida, but changes are coming for the weekend.

Orlando will reach a high of 83 degrees, well above the average of 72 on this date.

"We will have a mix of sun and clouds," News 6 meteorologist Troy Bridges said.

Overnight lows will be near 60 for the next week.

A front brings slightly cooler temperatures and rain to the region, however, over the weekend.

Saturday's high will be 74. Sunday will reach 78. There's a 40 percent chance of rain both days.

"It won't be a washout, but several areas will see rain off and on," Bridges said.
