The high temperature on Thursday will reach 76 degrees in Orlando, about 10 degrees warmer than Wednesday.  The overnight low will be in the low 60s.

"Moisture will increase across Central Florida bringing more cloud cover on Thursday," Local 6 meteorologist Troy Bridges said.  "As high pressure pushes off to the east, southeast winds kick up, allowing temperatures to increase."

The high on Friday will be 80 degrees, but a new front increases rain chances to 60 percent.

Saturday's high will be 82 degrees, with rain chances at 50 percent.

"The chance of rain decreases to 20 percent on Sunday as the front moves out," Bridges said.

High temperatures warm into the low 80s into next week.
