Cooler weather comes to Central Florida

High in Orlando to top off in 60s

ORLANDO, Fla. – A new front is bringing big weather changes to Central Florida.

Temperatures started off Wednesday in the 40s and 50s across the region, and highs will only warm into the upper 60s. The average high on this date is 79.

“Along the front, there will be clouds and a little bit of light drizzle to start,” News 6 meteorologist Troy Bridges said. “Through the afternoon, the rain comes to an end but clouds stick around.”

Expect a high of 78 Thursday, with rain chances at 20%.

The chance of rain jumps to 70% Friday as a new front approaches.

“This front will reinforce cool air,” Bridges said. “Morning lows for the weekend will be in the 50s. Afternoon highs will be near 70.”

There is a high surf advisory in effect for area beaches as waves could reach 7 feet just off the coast.

Hurricane season runs through the end of the month, but there’s nothing brewing in the tropics.
