ORLANDO, Fla. - Sunday is bringing some exciting changes to Central Florida, including a rare eclipse and a not-as-rare cool down.

A cold winter wind muscled its way around Central Florida Sunday.

"After clearing the skies, the wind will allow temperatures to drop rapidly after sunset," News 6 meterologist Danny Treanor said.

  • A wind chill factor that will make it feel even colder, possibly as low as 29 degrees.
  • There will be no frost due to the winds, though Marion County is under a freeze warning.

Martin Luther King Jr. Day will be sunny, but still chilly and breezy.

Treanor said highs are expected to rebound to the upper 50s. Temperatures in the mid-70s will return by the middle of the workweek, along with the rain ahead of the next cold front that arrives Thursday.
