ORLANDO, Fla. — Temperatures in Central Florida reached the upper 80s to the low 90s in many areas Thursday, as a high-pressure system dominated our weather pattern, providing lots of sunshine and warm temperatures.

Some showers will be possible during the evening across metro Orlando as the moisture pushed over Central Florida combined with the onshore flow.

The next cold front is slated to pass over Central Florida late Friday night. Although this won’t be a strong cold 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.

High temperatures on Friday will be in the mid to upper-80s. Low temperatures on Saturday and Sunday morning will be in the low-70s, and the afternoons will be still comfortable with temps reaching the mid-80s.

Weather will remain mostly stable with a few clouds.

Lows will be in the low 70s, but with the low humidity, it will feel very comfortable at night.

The next strong cold front is slated to push through Central Florida late Friday afternoon or early evening. Before the cold air arrives, expect a slight chance for scattered showers and a thunderstorm or two during the afternoon.

Highs on Friday, will reach the mid-80s around noon and continue to gradually fall during the afternoon as the winds shift.

Saturday morning will be cool, with temperatures in the mid-60s for Metro areas, and for rural areas, temperatures could fall to the mid-to upper-50s. Similar temps for Sunday morning.

The weekend looks to be mostly stable, especially on Saturday afternoon, but with a slight increase in scattered showers on Sunday.
