Southerly winds will draw in some unseasonably warm air for the middle of the work week. After patchy morning fog, partly sunny skies are slated for the afternoon. Highs will climb into the mid-80s throughout most of the interior with upper 70s and low 80s at the coast. With Orlando aiming for 86 degrees, that isn’t far from the existing record on this date of 88 degrees last set in 1989.
Partly cloudy, breezy and mild conditions are expected overnight. Lows will settle in the mid-60s inland with upper 60s at the coast.
Thursday will offer another warm day in the low to mid-80s with a trend of increasing clouds in the afternoon. An approaching cold front now has a slower track, now arriving on Friday morning. This will allow dry conditions to prevail on Thursday and the rain chance to be removed until overnight.
When the cold front slides by from north to south on Friday it will lose much of its intensity but still be capable of a broken line of showers and possibly a thunderstorm. Like previous fronts, this one is also projected to stall across the southern part of the Peninsula and waver through the weekend. With this feature nearby, cooler temperatures, increased cloud cover, and occasional showers will linger in the forecast through the weekend.
