ORLANDO, Fla. - It was another brisk start to the day across Central Florida, but Tuesday will be comfortable by the afternoon.

"We are waking up to temperatures in the 40s and 50s, with some areas of dense fog," News 6 meteorologist Candace Campos said. "Skies will clear, however, allowing for highs to max out near in the low 70s."

Overnight lows will be in the mid-40s.

Wednesday's high will be in the mid-70s, with a 10 percent chance of rain.

"Our next best chance of rain comes Thursday, with a coverage increasing to 90 percent," Campos said, "This strong front will also increase the risk of strong to severe storms by the afternoon."

Once the front clears, cooler and drier air will settle in as winter officially begins Friday afternoon. 

Friday's high will be in the mid-60s.
