Cool, Sunny Sunday ahead in Orlando area

Light breeze will keep temperatures few degrees below normal in mid-60s

ORLANDO, Fla. – Most of the rain is pushing out of Central Florida, with cooler and drier weather settling in. Skies will gradually clear after midnight with temperatures cooling into the mid to upper 40s across the area.

Dry and cool conditions arrive behind the front as high pressure build across the Gulf Of Mexico. A light northwest breeze Sunday will keep temperatures a few degrees below normal in the mid-60s.

As we enter into the new workweek, quiet weather will remain as high pressure settles over the Florida peninsula. Highs each day will gradually warm in the mid 70s, under mostly sunny skies and mainly dry conditions.

Our next system approaches the area Thursday and Friday, with a strong cold front digging into the region. Models have pulled back a bit on the timing, focusing most of the rain to move in late Thursday and through most of the day Friday. We could potentially see a line of strong storms with gusty winds move through with rain chances jumping up to 60-80%.

Boating outlook

Boating will once again be dangerous as the the cold front slicing through Central Florida Saturday will keep the surf running high.
