ORLANDO, Fla. – Get ready for a great Saturday to be out and about. But dress lightly, because it's going to be a warm day.

There will be a mix of sun and clouds throughout the day. High temperatures in Central Florida will range from 80 along the coast to 83 across the interior.

The east to southeast wind will pick up later in the day. We could get wind gusts near 20 mph or more.

 Bikers and beachgoers: Don't forget the sunscreen and to drink a lot of water while out in the sun.

If you are headed to Viera Saturday to join News 6 for the Seafood and Music Festival be sure to dress for warm temperatures.
 

If you plan on taking a dip in the ocean, swim safe and near a lifeguard. The rip current risk is moderate all weekend long. 
 
A few sprinkles of rain could pop up, but nothing that would force you to cancel plans. Rain chance is 20 percent in the second half of Saturday.

Overnight, winds will drop down a little but the mild conditions continue for the last evening of standard time.  

Saturday night, remember to spring your clocks forward one hour.  

Lows overnight will range from 62 in Ocala to 67 in Orlando and Palm Bay.

Sunday looks a lot like Saturday but some coastal areas have a 20 percent chance of rain. Temperatures remain on the warm side, topping out at 82 at the beaches and 88 inland.

The week ahead offers a chance of rain on Tuesday while temperatures continue in the 80s.

It's a golf and seafood kind of weekend.
