Breezy, slight cooldown for Central Florida; coastal flooding, high risk for rip currents through the weekend

ORLANDO, Fla. — Temperatures in Central Florida stayed in the upper 80s in many areas Friday. It’s been a breezy day, and the breezy will stay with us through much of the weekend.

There is a possibility of a few showers moving through the area in the evening.

The cold front is not a strong front, we forecast a slight decrease in temperatures just in time for the weekend. Humidity will be much lower, so it will feel really nice outdoors.


The breezy conditions could cause some erosion and coastal flooding for Brevard, Volusia, and Flagler counties this weekend. As the winds shift on its speed will remain strong. A coastal flood advisory is in effect through Monday morning.
