We've had dry weather for a couple of weeks, but that comes to an end starting Sunday. Rainy and cloudy conditions are in the forecast for the start of our holiday week. The system bringing the chance for showers and storms is still on track to clear Central Florida just in time for a sunny and cooler Christmas.
After a chilly start to our weekend, lots of sunshine has helped to warm temperatures into the mid- to low-70s. An area of low pressure has developed over the Gulf of Mexico and continues to push moisture in our direction. We'll begin to see more clouds throughout the remainder of the day and into tonight. There have been a few showers that have worked their way inland along the Gulf coast, so some light sprinkles will be possible in Sumter and Marion counties. Most will stay dry as we head into tonight. Mostly cloudy skies are in the forecast through the overnight hours with lows falling into the upper-50s to low-60s.
Sunday will be partly sunny and dry to start. A few more clouds and the chance for rain will pick up during the afternoon as a weak front sits to our north. High temperatures will be slightly warmer in the mid- to upper-70s.
That front will hang around Monday, bringing a higher chance for showers and possibly some storms. Unsettled weather will continue through Wednesday with a stronger cold front approaching late Tuesday and into Christmas Eve. Our best chance for showers and storms will be Tuesday night and Wednesday morning. Any storms that develop will be moving quickly, so gusty wind will be a threat. This system looks to clear by Wednesday afternoon. Clouds will decrease Christmas Eve, leading us into a gorgeous Christmas Day with lots of sunshine and cooler temperatures in the mid-60s.
