Today's Weather Forecast for the Orlando Area
Thursday, Dec. 5, 2013
The overall weather pattern has not changed much over the last few days, and is not expected to change much through the weekend. High pressure will remain in control of the weather pattern over the Gulf of Mexico and Florida Peninsula, until it is finally dislodged by a weak cold front early next week. Expect mild morning with low temperatures about 5 to 10 degrees warmer than typical for the time of year, as well as areas of dense fog early in the day, along with partly cloudy and warm afternoons.
Light winds allowed for some fog this morning, creating some visibility issues. Otherwise, it was a mild start to the day, with temperatures in the 50s and 60s and afternoon highs in the lower to middle 80s. Tonight, expect mild conditions and partly cloudy skies. Overnight, some areas of patchy dense fog will develop. Low temperatures will drop into the lower to middle 60s for most, with upper 60s along the Brevard Coast.
Tomorrow, the weather pattern does not change. Expect a dry day with partly sunny skies. Highs will reach the lower 80s.
Heading into the weekend, the stubborn high pressure remains in place. Above average temperatures and dry conditions are in the forecast. Daytime highs will reach the lower 80s, with overnight lows in the lower 60s.
Early next week, a weak front moves toward Central Florida, bringing small rain chances and some cooler air to Central Florida. Highs by mid-week will be closer to normal, in the middle 70s, with overnight lows in the 50s.
Even though hurricane season is over, an area of low pressure just south of the Azores has formed. This low pressure has a chance to develop into a subtropical system before moving north and weakening Friday. Whether development occurs or not, there is no threat to the United States.
