ORLANDO, Fla. — All of the sunshine Thursday afternoon was a little deceiving with temperatures not warming up much.

An unseasonably cold airmass settled over us and we struggled to climb into the upper 50s and lower 60s Thursday afternoon.

Lows overnight are set to slide back into the 30s and 40s, but a few degrees above where we were Thursday morning. Lighter wind may allow patchy areas of frost to develop in Marion County right before daybreak Friday.

More sunshine is on tap Friday with highs warming back into the mid to upper 60s. A building area of low pressure will bring our wind onshore again this weekend, ushering in even warmer air.

We warm back into the low to mid-70s Saturday and mid to upper 70s Sunday under a mix of clouds and sun both days. A weak cold front may provide us an isolated shower chance Sunday, but coverage is a very low 20 percent.

We’re at or slightly above seasonable levels in the lower 70s Monday, with a reinforcing push of cooler air coming down the pipe Tuesday. Highs by then are back into the middle 60s, but back into the upper 60s to around 70 by Wednesday and Thursday.

Our winter atmosphere remains too dry to produce any appreciable rain over the next week to 10-days.

Beach and Surf Forecast

Poor surfing conditions are with us the next couple days thanks to low wave heights and a slow uptick in a north to northeasterly windswell. Wave heights bump up over two to three feet Friday, although the water will be more like a washing machine.

A low rip current threat exists for swimmers in the chilly Atlantic waters. We may see more of a moderate rip threat as waves come up, so use caution.
