Very warm weekend across Central Florida, coldest air of the season arrives early next week

Some areas dip to low 30s by Tuesday morning


ORLANDO, Fla- – Saturday night will be nice to be out and about. Temperatures will fall from the 70s to the 60s and pretty much stay there.

Mainly clear skies are expected with lows in the upper 50s to low or mid 60s.

Patchy fog is possible especially inland areas. That will burn off fairly quickly, then it’s back to sunny skies and the low 80s.

By Sunday night, a cold front will inch closer. This will allow for a few showers to pop up later in the day and spread out a little more and move south as the front passes the area through Monday morning. It will also start to turn quite breezy, with winds gusting near 20 mph out of the south to southwest, eventually shifting behind the front to a northwest wind and gusting near 25 mph Monday afternoon.

Then, bring on the cold! It will be the coldest weather of the season so far. Highs will reach the 60s and lows will be in the 40s, with some areas dipping to the low 30s by Tuesday morning.

Tropical update:

As far as the tropics go, nothing is expected to develop over the next several days. Saturday also marked the final day of the 2019 Hurricane season. We got through the letter S for named storms with Sebastien. The last time we did that was back in 2012.


Boating update:

On the water, boating will turn hazardous, starting as early as Saturday night. Mariners of small craft need to use caution with the south to southwest wind picking up near 20 knots.

Well offshore, there is a gale warning in place as a cold front inches closer to the Sunshine State. A small craft advisory will be in place from Sunday morning through Monday night. Expect very choppy waters as the winds shift and turn more out of the northwest and gust in excess of 25 knots.
