Central Florida is in for some warmer temperatures. Here is the weather forecast:

  • Warm and quiet the next several days
  • Next several days will be in the upper 70s
  • SEE BELOW: See our 7-day forecast

Temperatures jumped above average Wednesday afternoon with highs in the mid 70s. A few showers were able to move inland, but most were dry with partly sunny skies.

There will be no major changes in our weather for the next several days. Expect mostly sunny skies, not much rain and unseasonably warm temperatures right on in to the weekend.

A few isolated coastal showers will be possible early tonight, but most of Central Florida will be quiet with partly cloudy skies. Temperatures will be cool, falling into the mid to upper 50s. As winds weaken, there will be the chance for areas of dense fog as we head toward daybreak on Thursday.

Mostly sunny skies are in the forecast for Thursday. The disturbance to our east the past couple of days will move north, which will drop rain chances along the coast. There's only a slim chance for a stray shower.

Temperatures will warm quickly Thursday afternoon, reaching the mid to upper 70s. We'll stay around 80 degrees for the next several days with mostly sunny skies.

Easterly winds will continue for Thursday, which will keep an elevated rip current risk around. There will also be a bit of a chop on the water with winds between 10-15 knots.
