Slim rain chances in Orlando area

By Daniel Dahm - Digital Manager, Troy Bridges - Meteorologist

ORLANDO, Fla. - Cooler air has invaded Central Florida, dropping high temperatures into the 70s.

"The front we’ve been pinpointing for the past few days has pushed south of the area," News 6 meteorologist Troy Bridges said. "Now, drier air is building in. Winds will not be as strong as Tuesday, but expect a breeze out of the north-northeast at about 15 to 20 mph."

Temperatures started off Wednesday in the 50s in most areas, although northern counties reached the 40s.

"We will gradually warm, with lots of sunshine, as high pressure continues to build across Central Florida," Bridges said.

Expect a high of 78 in Orlando. The average high on this date is 79.

Upper 70s can be expected through the end of the week.

"A weak system will approach as we head into the end of the weekend, bringing slight rain chances on Sunday," Bridges said.

Morning lows will remain in the upper 50s through next week.

Pinpointing the tropics

There is an area of low pressure that is moving northeast at 15 to 20 mph across the central and eastern Azores.

Conditions, however, are becoming unfavorable for the formation of a tropical cyclone.

The system will stay well away from the United States.
