Once the sun came up, we started warming nicely. Under a sunny sky Thursday, our highs topped the upper 60s and lower 70s.
Dry ground and low humidity is leading to a very high to extreme fire danger over a large part of the state, so hold off any planned burning. Seminole County enacted a burn ban Thursday.
The countywide ban prohibits all outdoor burning until further notice, including bon fires, campfires and burning yard debris. They also strongly discourage fireworks. For more information, you can call Seminole County at 407-665-5102. FULL RELEASE.
We slip back into the 30s and 40s for one more night before warmer air returns. High pressure stays in control of our pattern the next few days, so expect more sun.

Temps warm into the mid to upper 70s Friday, then low 80s Saturday and Sunday. Our next slight rain chance may hold off until Sunday or Monday, then cooler air moves in again mid-week.
Poor to fair conditions are expected in the surf again Friday with a leftover northeast swell and wave heights of a lower one to two feet.
A low to moderate rip current threat is also sticking around. Sea surface temps are still a bit chilly in the upper 60s along our east coast.
The UV index will be very high, so around 15 minutes to start a good sunburn.
