Nice weekend ahead

ORLANDO, Fla. — After a record-setting Wednesday and Thursday, where highs reached the upper-80s for parts of Central Florida, a cold front has provided thick clouds and much cooler temperatures to end the week.

The winds will continue to be from the north between 10-15 mph, but decreasing overnight. Rain will taper off and the clouds will gradually diminish too. Low temperatures will range between 55 degrees across rural areas and 60 degrees for metro areas.

The weekend promises to be mostly stable. There is a low chance for a brief passing shower, but most of Central Florida should remain rain-free. The winds will be shifting from the east-southeast by Sunday and the temperatures will rebound to the low 80s by Sunday afternoon.
