High pressure remains in place across Central Florida for one more day and then our weather begins to transition into a much more unsettled patter by the end of the weekend and through the middle of next week. Warm and humid conditions are expected for the weekend, with the chance of showers beginning on Sunday and the possibility for a few thunderstorms by Monday and Tuesday of next week. Weather conditions are expected to clear by late on Christmas Eve for a sunny and dry Christmas Day.
Overnight, we will see partly cloudy skies and lows in the mid- to upper 40s. There may be a few areas of patchy light fog develop closer to sunrise. Today looks sunny and seasonable, with highs in the lower to middle 70s. A storm system will pass just to our north as we start the weekend. Eventually, the high breaks down just enough to allow a cold front to slowly sag into the area late in the weekend and into early next week. This frontal boundary will bring with it the chance for rain.
The best chance for showers will be early in the week, with a decreasing chance as we head towards Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. The temperatures will stay warmer than normal through Tuesday, with a drop in temperatures by Christmas.
Weather can be mysterious, exciting and sometimes dangerous. That's why News 13 created Project Weather to help provide kids with the information they need to stay safe. Project Weather is made up of interactive educational resources to help prepare students for the future.
