Temperatures overnight not as frigid as last week

Highs Saturday

ORLANDO, Fla. – The near-record warmth of the last few days is going away for a while. Behind a strong cold front, much cooler air will settle in Saturday.

The warmest part of Saturday has already occurred with upper 60s and lower 70s prior to sunrise. Afternoon temperatures will hover around 60 degrees with a breeze out of the north.

Hour by hour

While it won’t be a washout, scattered showers will be around from time to time. Central Florida will, however, stay locked in the clouds Saturday. Even higher rain chances come back us for Sunday, although temperatures will warm back into the upper 60s and lower 70s.

Temperatures overnight won’t be as cold as last week’s chill, however. A widespread frost and freeze are unlikely over the next week. Patchy frost will be possible northwest of I-4 for the middle of next week.

The roller coaster temperatures will continue into next week with a warmer day coming Monday followed by cooler air returning for the middle of the week. Click here for more on the wild weather pattern and when it may end.
