Rainy and cool Tuesday; big drop in temps coming for holiday weekend

ORLANDO, Fla. — There are big changes coming to the weather in Central Florida this week.


We are moving into an active pattern that will end with a big drop in our temperatures for the holiday weekend.

Tuesday morning will have low temperatures in the mid-to-upper 50s, not as cold as what we experienced Monday morning.

Tuesday will be less about bundling up and more about preparing for the chance of rain.

Any low-pressure system moving in from the Gulf of Mexico will pull in moisture into our area.

Tuesday will be cloudy and cool until the rain starts this afternoon.

Central Florida will see an increased chance for rain into the late evening hours.

Due to the rain and heavy clouds, our area will have high temperatures in the upper 60s.

Another storm system will arrive Thursday into Friday.

The strong cold front will bring us a cold outbreak, by Florida standards.

On Christmas Eve – this Saturday – high temperatures will be in the 40s. Usually, we are in the middle 70s.

Parts of Central Florida will see three to four nights with temperatures in the 20s and 30s.
