A few light showers will also be possible through the early morning hours. Overnight lows will be in the low to mid 60s, with 50s northwest of Orlando.

A large temperature spread is likely again Friday, with widespread showers developing. Highs for Friday will be in the upper 70s.

The front will combine with an upper level feature to produce locally heavy rain and a few strong storms Friday night, especially south and east of I-4.

Rain tapers from northwest to southeast Saturday morning, with highs struggling to reach 60 in most neighborhoods Saturday and Sunday.

We even have a threat for frosty conditions Sunday and Monday morning.

Temperatures will likely stay cool for much of next week.

Grab the board and prepare for another fair surfcast for Friday. A northeast to east-northeast swell and wave heights pushing three to four feet will make for some pretty fun sets.

Keep an eye on potential storms popping in the afternoon along the Brevard County coastline.

If you’re planning a swim, the rip current threat stays moderate into the weekend.
