Windy Sunday ahead with plenty of sunshine in Orlando area

Tropics active, but no threats to Florida at this time

ORLANDO, Fla. – The relatively comfortable weather that has been around for the past few days will continue for the weekend.

The rest of Saturday night will be partly cloudy, mainly dry and still very windy.

On Sunday, plenty of sunshine is in the forecast with mainly dry conditions and still very windy with an east to northeast wind at 10-15 mph.

Anyone who plans on hitting the beach should be careful, as there is still a high rip current risk, along with high surf advisories for the majority of the day. For boaters, it's going to be choppy out there, so be careful as there are small craft advisories in place.

The first day of fall is going to be Monday, and temperatures will be average in the upper 80s. It will still be breezy, but the wind will relax Tuesday. The area will remain rain-free until the end of the workweek, with high pressure staying close enough to help suppress rain chances.

Tropical update

The tropics remain very active with Tropical Storm Jerry and three areas to watch. None of these entities poses a threat to Florida at this time.

Tropical Storm Jerry will stay over the Atlantic Ocean, maintaining tropical storm strength as it gets closer to Bermuda on Tuesday. Jerry is expected to make a turn north and stay far away from Florida.

A wave in the Caribbean will have a tough time developing over the next few days. Another tropical wave east of the Leeward Islands has a 50% chance to develop.

The biggest tropical wave looks to emerge from Africa and develop over the next few days. This looks to quickly make a turn north, becoming a storm for the fishes! Stay tuned.
