ORLANDO, Fla. — We had a fantastic end to our work week with seasonable temperatures and lots of sunshine.

We kicked off this first Friday of December with another round of chilly air, but temps steadily climbed into the 70s and topped out close to seasonable levels for this time of year.
We’ve also enjoyed a sun-filled sky, with an increase in some of the high level clouds. Not as cold overnight thanks to this thin veil of clouds, with lows well into the 50s.
High pressure shifting east Saturday will bring our wind around from the southeast and usher in more moisture. Although not oppressive, it’ll feel humid by the afternoon. Highs warm back above average up either side of 80 under a partly sunny sky. An isolated shower cannot be ruled out over toward I-95.

Clouds thicken Saturday night ahead of an approaching cold front and developing area of low pressure nearby. As the low slides northeast, it’ll drag the front into Central Florida and bring with it a fast moving line of showers and embedded storms Sunday morning.
A strong storm or two could produce gusty wind and locally heavy rain. This system provides us gusty wind as well. We’ll keep scattered showers and isolated storms in the forecast during the afternoon, but most of us will dry out during the late afternoon, early evening.
We’ll go from the 70s Sunday back into the 60s for highs Monday and Tuesday as cool high pressure drifts back into the region.
A shift to an east-southeast windswell and wave heights down around one to two feet won’t provide any surf, so our surfcast looks poor this weekend. Our rip current threat remains moderate, so use extra caution in the water.
