Rain moves through Central Florida as temperatures dip

Orlando to reach high in mid-70s

ORLANDO, Fla. – A surface low and cold front is pushing through Central Florida on Wednesday, dragging rain and storms into the region.

Rain was mostly cleared out of the area by 10 a.m.

Skies cleared behind the front, and dry conditions will be in place overnight.

High temperatures in Orlando will remain in the mid-70s, with overnight lows cooling into the 50s.

By Thursday and Friday, a large area of high pressure will build in, allowing for two nice days in the 70s, under mostly clear skies.

Our next round of rain arrives Saturday as a reinforcing shot of cold air slides into the region. The long-range forecast continues to show a marked increase in rain chances Friday night and into Saturday, along with a chance of a few strong storms. Rain chances will remain high for the first half of Saturday with the fast-moving front pushing offshore later in the day.

Behind the front, temperatures will remain below average, near 70 degrees.

Brisk onshore breeze from the Atlantic on Sunday behind the low, will produce coastal and marine hazards with rough surf Sunday. High pressure over the mid-Atlantic will keep temperatures cool, with no rain chances expected at least the first half of next week.
