ORLANDO, Fla. — We had a gorgeous weekend with temperatures below seasonable levels and a much drier feel to the air.

Now that we have made it to dry season, our pattern will include more cold frontal passages, drier air on a constant basis, and temperatures cooling off similar to what we have experienced the past few days. Temps do warm up though, and we are talking about another rain chance in the extended forecast.

A weak front slips by us overnight, but will only bring another round of dry air and not a cool down. As a matter of fact, as the ridge across the region builds, we will see our temps climb back above seasonable levels into the low to mid-80s the next few days.

Moisture slowly returns by Thursday too, allowing us to introduce a 40 percent afternoon rain coverage. The next cold front slides in Friday with shower and storm coverage up to 60 percent and a high near 80. Behind the front, drier air is in store again this weekend with highs generally in the 70s.

Surfing doesn’t look good Tuesday, as a small east-southeast swell and northeast windswell combine with wave heights of one to two feet to create poor conditions. Enough of an ocean swell is in place to keep us in a moderate rip current risk, so use caution if you’re planning a swim.

Tropical Update

Hurricane Oscar continues small gains in strength in the Central Atlantic. Although this storm was pushing westward, it has now turned north thanks to a sharp front. Oscar is no threat to land. Hurricane season officially ends in a month.

Atlantic hurricane season officially ends November 30.
