Rain, warmth Sunday will precede New Year’s cooldown

Temperatures will be around 80 degrees on Sunday

ORLANDO, Fla. – Scattered showers will continue to pop up through most of the night Saturday. The most activity will be near the coast and will start before dawn and then lasting through mid-morning.

Most of the rain will be drizzle or just light, however, there could be some showers Sunday morning that will produce moderate to heavy rainfall. It could add up to a few inches of rainfall in the heavier hit areas, but most cities from I-4 west will stay under a 1/10 of an inch.

Cloudy skies stay with us overnight with lows ranging from 65 to 70 degrees.

Sunday will be another spring-like day as highs rebound to the upper 70s and low 80s. The east to southeast wind will pick up in the afternoon and gust near 20 mph.

Rain chances will stay around 30% through Monday with the net cold front expected to move in overnight into Tuesday. That’s good news for those with New Year’s Eve plans.

What rain that does fall on Tuesday will clear out early. The clouds will linger, but it won’t be warm. As we ring in the New Year, temperatures will be close to 50 and then drop from there.

Northern areas will wake up to the upper 30s early on the first of January. Orlando and areas to the south will be closer to the upper 40s to low 50s. Great weather to wear a new jacket if you got one as a gift!

New Year’s Day will be mainly sunny and in the upper 60s and a little breezy. The cool down will be short-lived, with highs rebounding back to 80 by Friday. Rain returns as we head into the first weekend of 2020.

Beach conditions will continue to be hazardous and the same goes for boating. Rip current risks remain high and seas will be a little bumpy.
