ORLANDO, Fla. - The warmth has returned to Central Florida, at least temporarily.
According to News 6 meteorologist Samara Cokinos, the change comes not a moment too soon.
"Get ready for the 80s, folks," she said. "This weekend will be nice for plans outdoors."
News 6 meteorologist Danny Treanor said if you liked Saturday's weather, you will like Sunday and Monday.
"Looks like more of the same of mild conditions as we go into the evening hours," Treanor said.
Temperatures will drop down to 64 degrees in Orlando and 62 degrees in Ocala and Merritt Island. There is a chance for some patchy fog Sunday morning.
Sunday temperatures will be in the 80s.
"Sun protection will be a good idea," Treanor said.
Boating conditions are expected to be favorable all weekend. The southwest wind will remain light, from 5-10 mph. No issues are expected with the seas, which are predicted to average 2-3 feet.
"Beachgoers, don't forget sunscreen," Cokinos said. "The UV Index will be high as you hit the sand."
The water at local beaches will be a little cool, in the low 60s. Cokinos recommended staying near a lifeguard when swimming, as the rip current risk is moderate.
Presidents Day on Monday will also be in the 80s, and there is a 20 percent chance of rain.
The remainder of the week remains warm. No new blast of cold is expected in the near future.
