ORLANDO, Florida — West-southwesterly flow will take shape today as Michael aims northeast toward the Carolinas and western Atlantic. 

The airmass being drawn into Central Florida will be a bit drier, but temperatures will not cool much. Highs today will run in the upper 80s to near 90 with a few leftover showers.

Clouds will decrease by tonight, leading to sunny sky to end the work week Friday. Highs on Friday will stay in the similar range of upper 80s to near 90 degrees as the weak front passes to our south. Expect readings to remain in this range through the weekend as plenty of sun sticks around Saturday and Sunday.

Little to no rain will be found again until Sunday when a few minor showers return.  Low rain chances appear in the forecast early next week.

Those in small craft are urged to use caution today due to seas around 3 to 5 feet offshore and choppy conditions on the Intracoastal.  The surf zone will feature fair to good waves with an offshore wind, but the rip current risk remains elevated.
