The work week will be off to a pleasant start as high pressure sets up across the eastern Gulf of Mexico. This airmass will supply Central Florida with ample sunshine for the first half of the work week. The dry air will warm nicely today as temperatures bounce back to more seasonable levels compared to over the weekend. Highs will climb into the upper 70s and low 80s. The typical high for this date in March is 80 degrees.
Mostly sunny skies today will lead to clear skies tonight. Lows will fall to the upper 50s by daybreak, so not as cold as recent nights.
Tuesday will present few changes but by Wednesday, clouds will start to return with a back door cold front dropping in from the northeast. This will trigger some minor showers through Thursday.
Looking ahead to Easter weekend, much of the weekend looks bright and dry with above-average temperatures. Saturday will be mostly sunny and dry with highs in the mid-80s. There are some indications of a front moving south on Easter, but it's currently lacking in moisture. Rain chances stay out of the forecast for now, but this may have to change as we get a little closer.
