ORLANDO, Fla. — You definitely needed a jacket as you walked out the door Thursday morning, as we started out the day in the 30s and 40s area wide.

Although a cool day overall, we were able to enjoy a sun-filled sky. Highs topped the mid to upper 60s, with a few low 70s, so about four to eight degrees below seasonable levels for early December.

Overnight will not be as chilly because of a more onshore flow and a few clouds drifting over some coastal neighborhoods.

High pressure sliding over the lower Mississippi Valley into the Gulf of Mexico will provide us another mostly sunny and slightly warmer day Friday. Highs climb back to average in the low to mid-70s in what we’ll call a Fantastic Friday weather wise.

Atmospheric moisture begins increasing Saturday ahead of a cold front moving into the southeast. We’ll warm temps into the mid to upper 70s with an increase in the clouds, and may squeeze out an isolated shower either side of I-95 Saturday afternoon.

An area of low pressure developing to our north will ride along the cold front early Sunday, drawing in more moisture and giving us scattered showers and storms.

Although severe weather will be limited, storms could produce strong wind gusts. We’re closely watching the models with updates as we get closer.

Sunday highs in the mid to upper 70s dip back into the 60s behind the front Monday, as cooler and drier air invades to kick off a new week.

An east-southeast swell and northeast windswell mix along with wave heights of only one to two feet won’t create the best surfing conditions, with a poor surfcast Friday into Saturday. A minimal swell keeps our rip current threat low.
