Today will start out with areas of fogy giving way to partial sunshine. Winds will shift to the southwest pulling in warmer air. Highs will reach the low to mid-80s, although coastal areas may be slightly cooler.
The southwest flow will carry in added moisture, contributing to more clouds in the afternoon along with the risk of scattered showers. A few thunderstorms may be embedded. This will be the trend into the overnight hours as the next cold front grows closer and moisture deepens. This system will be sliding across the Panhandle overnight, arriving in Central Florida early Friday morning.
Plan on showers throughout the day on Friday as this front moves through. Rain could be heavy at times and a few thunderstorms could bright gusty winds. This will mark the leading edge to some unseasonably cooler air that will follow. Highs on Friday will hover around 80 degrees with rain continuing into the evening. The front will exit the coast overnight and skies will be clear by Saturday morning.
Over the weekend, highs will run considerably below average with highs around 70 degrees and lows in the upper 40s to near 50. Plenty of sunshine will be found both Saturday and Sunday.
