ORLANDO, Fla. — We had more sunshine for the end of October as temperatures topped out in the mid to low 80s.

High pressure remained in control for our Wednesday, keeping the weather quiet and the temperatures warm. Highs climbed slightly above seasonable levels, topping the low to mid-80s. Expect a mainly clear sky overnight and lows in the 60s area wide.

As the high drifts east Thursday and a cold front moves into the southeastern U.S., moisture returns to central Florida with a muggier feel to the air. We kick off November under a mostly sunny sky and will heat into the mid to upper 80s.

Rain and rumble coverage increases to 40 percent late Friday with highs back into the 80s. The best chance for a broken area of showers moves in along the front after sunset Friday night.

Behind the front, drier air will allow a partly cloudy sky Saturday and cooler highs in the 70s. We are back into the upper 70s and lower 80s Sunday with a quick return of the moisture, and a 30 percent afternoon shower chance.

By the way, don’t forget to turn your clocks back an hour before bed Saturday night!

An easterly swell coming in from distant Oscar has been kicking up the rip current risk along the east coast, and although we’ll see it begin diminishing Thursday, you’ll still need to exercise caution and pay attention to lifeguard stand flags if swimming.

Our overall surfcast looks poor to fair with wave heights three to four feet, occasionally higher.

Tropical Update

In the tropics, Oscar has transitioned into a post-tropical low, accelerating rapidly to the northeast across the north-central Atlantic. 

The hurricane season continues through November 30.
