It'll be chilly tonight.

ORLANDO, Fla. – Central Floridians woke up Tuesday to 30s and 40s after another cold front passed through the region.

Make sure you grab a jacket as temperature as we will slowly climb into the 60s for afternoon highs.

Tuesday will be a far cry from the record highs -- temperatures in the 80s -- that we saw at the end of last week.

The average high in Orlando for this time of year is 71. The normal low is 49. The record low on this date is 26, set in 1918. The record high is 84, set in 1947.

Expect highs back into the 70s on Thursday, with rain chances coming in at 20% on Friday, when highs will be in the 60s.

We will be dry for the weekend, with high temperatures in the mid- to upper 60s.
