The cold front has cleared Central Florida, allowing for drier and cooler air to move in behind it. We started out our Wednesday with a few showers and storms around, but the rain began to taper off around lunchtime. Our highest temperatures for the day occurred at midnight as we switched over to Wednesday in the upper 60s to around 70 degrees. Now that we have a strong wind out of the northwest, cooler air has dropped the temperatures back for the afternoon into the 50s. This cooler weather will stick around, along with some sunshine, for Thanksgiving Day.
Mostly clear skies are in the forecast through the overnight hours. Winds will drop back a bit from the afternoon, but will still be pulling in cooler air from the northwest. Lows will be on the chilly side, dropping into the middle to low 40s.
Happy Thanksgiving! We can definitely be thankful for some gorgeous weather on this holiday. Plenty of sunshine with drier air in place all day long and comfortable temperatures. After the chilly start, highs will climb into the upper 60s to low 70s for the afternoon. Winds will be a bit breezy out of the northwest.
Lots of sunshine will continue for the rest of the week and into the weekend with temperatures warming back up. The numbers will already be back into the 70s by Saturday.
