Warmer Sunday in Central Florida as we get used to the time change

Cooler start, but warmer afternoon than Saturday

ORLANDO, Fla. – A surface low with a trailing cold front across Texas will shift further east across the Gulf states, slowly breaking down a large ridge of high pressure over Florida. As the high begins to slide out into the Atlantic, our winds will veer and become more onshore.

This shift will allow the highs to warm a few more degrees than Saturday, into the mid 80s.

Through Sunday, expect warm and dry conditions with plenty of sunshine as drier air continues to filter in.

The aforementioned cold front across the Deep South will continue to slide into Central Florida by daybreak Monday morning. Models show a line of showers and storms pushing in starting Monday morning and sliding though the area through the afternoon. Embedded along this front could be a few strong storms with main threats including occasional lightning strikes, heavy downpours, small hail and even strong straight-line winds of up to 50 mph.
