ORLANDO, Fla. - Spotty showers, mostly along the coast, and high temperatures in the upper 70s are expected over the next couple of days in Central Florida.

"We are pinpointing a weak front moving through Central Florida," News 6 meteorologist Troy Bridges said. "The front will bring a little bit of a change, with a few showers into the afternoon."

Expect a 30 percent coverage of rain off and on Tuesday afternoon, and a 20 percent chance of rain on Wednesday afternoon.

Afternoon high temperatures will be a few degrees below the average of 79.

Highs will stay in the upper 70s through the end of the week.

"We will stay dry through the weekend, but expect temperatures by Friday morning to dip into the upper 50s," Bridges said.

Another blast of cool air could drop highs into the 60s in Orlando on Monday.

Pinpointing the tropics

Showers and thunderstorms have increased a little during the past several hours in association with a low pressure system about 400 miles south-southwest of the Azores.

Additional development of the system is possible, and the system could become a subtropical cyclone during the next couple of days.

The hurricane center is giving it a 50 percent chance of developing over the next five days. If it gets a name, it would be called Sean.
