Rain possible Sunday ahead of winter cooldown

Lows will drop below 40 Tuesday

ORLANDO, Fla- – Saturday night will be pretty quiet as the wind dials down a few notches.

Otherwise, it won’t be a bad night to be out and about under partly cloudy skies. Keep a light jacket handy, with lows being in the low 60s.

Sunday starts off with a decent amount of sunshine and light winds. As the day progresses, a cold front will inch closer.

The clouds will thicken up and a few stray showers will pop up over northern areas in the early afternoon. We won’t rule out a mid morning shower, but most of the rain will still be well to the north and west.

Highs will rebound to the upper 70s Sunday afternoon. Rain chances go up to 40% with scattered showers becoming more frequent later in the day.

Most of the rain will be gone by 11 p.m. Sunday.

The winds will crank up behind the cold front and gust up to 25 mph out of the north to northwest. Lows will linger in the low 50s tomorrow night then struggle to reach the low 60s for MLK Day.

It will still be windy as lows tumble to the 30s that night. Be sure to cover sensitive plants and bring in the furry friends.

On Tuesday morning, have something warm to eat and grab the coats before heading outdoors. It will be the coldest around Ocala County and in parts of Flagler, Marion, and Northwestern Volusia and northern Lake Counties, with temperatures expected to range between 33 to 38 degrees. Expect the low to be mid-40s elsewhere.

The cool down lasts through midweek before we’re back to the mid 70s by Friday. Don’t be surprised if a few showers pop up midweek, but it won’t be a washout.

Beach and Boating

On the water, boating continues to be hazardous. While the high surf advisories and lake wind advisories have expired, small craft advisories for the near and offshore waters will continue overnight and through part of tomorrow morning.
