High pressure remains in control of our weather this week, supplying Central Florida with a steady pattern of warm days and cool nights. Although the coldest temperatures are behind us, lows will be a bit chilly for a few more nights before warmer overnight readings return later this week.
Through the overnight hours, clear skies and calm winds will set the stage for another round of chilly temperatures. The usually cooler spots in Marion and Sumter counties will drop to the upper 30s again, with the potential for some patchy frost to occur. Most other interior areas will bottom out in the 40s; coastal Brevard County lows will stay close to 50 degrees.
Northerly winds will help usher in cool air again on Wednesday, keeping highs slightly below the average for this time of year. Typical highs this time in December run at 72 degrees; highs will remain in the mid- to upper 60s to near 70 degrees. By Thursday, winds will turn more onshore to help modify the airmass and warm things up gradually for the rest of the week. Highs will return to the low 80s by the weekend.
Rain chances will stay out of the forecast for several days. Aside from a coastal shower on Saturday and Sunday, the next opportunity for wet weather won’t be until the start of the upcoming workweek when the next cold front presses toward Central Florida.
