Happy fall y’all! Well... Almost. 😍🍁😃👍

ORLANDO, Fla. – It took long enough to get here! Right?

Hey Insiders! Meteorologist Troy Bridges here.

Now, don’t get too excited.

Even though fall officially arrives this Saturday, it won’t quite feel like it. At least not yet.

Temperatures will be a few degrees below the average but don’t break out the jackets just yet.

The average high for Orlando is still 90 degrees!

Expect high temperatures this weekend in the mid-80s with rain chances a little lower than we’ve seen over the past couple of days.

A stalled front brought high rain chances to Central Florida this week.

Time to add extra ice to your next pumpkin spice drink 🧊🍂

Fall is near, is your garden ready for the cooler air? 🍂

We say bye-bye to the scorching heat, well most of the heat, as we welcome the fall season this weekend. As we trade the hot and humid nights for crisp and cooler evenings, now is the best time to prepare your grass and gardens for the cooler weather.

Hey ya’ll, meteorologist Michelle Morgan here talking about how you can prepare those beautiful gardens for the cooler seasons.

❄️This winter could be very different🤷

I’m looking beyond fall! What’s up guys, meteorologist Jonathan Kegges with you. I know it’s still warm, but the winter pattern starts to give clues in summer. El Niño has been around since June and will get stronger through winter.
