A cold front is coming and is associated with a broad area of messy weather from the Gulf Coast to southern New England. Most of the heavy rain will stay north of Central Florida. However, a band of showers and an isolated thunderstorm will cross through the peninsula as the front weakens. Showers will arrive after midnight early on Friday and shift southward through the morning.
Northerly winds will follow behind the front on Friday afternoon, allowing cooler air to filter in. Highs on Friday will revert to the upper-60s and low-70s. Like previous fronts, this one is also projected to stall and hover over Central Florida through the weekend. With this feature nearby, cooler temperatures, increased cloud cover and occasional showers will linger in the forecast. The exact placement of the front will dictate which areas get into the warmer sector with breaks of sunshine, warmth and where onshore winds keep things cloudy and cool.
