The weak cold front that move down the Florida Peninsula early Wednesday, producing minimal light rain and slightly cooler morning lows has dissipated near Lake Okeechobee. High pressure building in behind the front through the end of the week will dominate our weather pattern, producing breezy conditions and mild temperatures, as well as a slight chance for rain on Thursday. The next cold front in our forecast is expected to arrive this weekend, with warmer weather expected again ahead of the front and a chance for some showers late Saturday night or Sunday, with some lower temperatures behind the front early next week.
Temperatures will be 10 to 12 degrees warmer than normal again overnight, with lows only dropping into the lower to middle 60s for most of the area. Typically colder spots north and west of I-4 will drop into the middle to upper 50s. We are expecting a fair amount of cloud cover overnight, with some areas of low clouds, mist and fog developing where winds go light over interior locations. Today will eventually be partly cloudy, breezy and mild with a slight chance for showers, mainly along the coast. A secondary surge of cooler and drier air will work into the area by the middle of the day, skies should clear from mostly cloudy in the morning to partly sunny by the afternoon, with high temperatures in the upper 60s and lower 70s. It will become quite windy on Thursday, with northeast winds topping out at 20 mph.
Friday will be partly cloudy and mild with high temperatures in the middle 70s. The next cold front will work into the southeast state on Saturday with winds turning to the southwest and highs in the lower to middle 80s under partly cloudy skies. Late Saturday night the front will arrive in north Florida with some showers in our forecast on Sunday, and cooler air behind the front in the forecast for early next week.
