ORLANDO, Fla. — It’s been a fairly quiet evening across Central Florida, with just a few sprinkles and temps in the 80s.

Expect the quiet weather to continue overnight, with mostly clear skies and morning lows in the low to mid 70s. Some areas in Marion Co. will likely fall into the upper 60s.

As high pressure builds into the region over the weekend, drier air invades the mid and upper atmosphere.

This will help kick off a dry stretch taking us from Saturday through the middle of next week. As a matter of fact, our next isolated shower chance isn’t until Thursday or Friday.

Highs this weekend stay at or slightly below average in the mid to upper 80s, then hover around 90 for most of next week. Overnight lows actually slip into the 60s in most neighborhoods in our extended period.

We officially welcome autumn Monday, and it seems we’re getting a real taste of Florida fall with dew points staying below 70, lots of sun, and a stretch of average temps.

Tropical Update

The tropics remain active with Hurricane Jerry making headway toward the west-northwest. Jerry is forecast to stay north of the Leeward Islands and Puerto Rico, then turn to the north sometime Sunday night before reaching the Turks and Caicos.

It’ll eventually trek toward Bermuda by the middle of next week, as it stays well east of Florida. Two other waves are being monitored for development, but nothing threatening the U.S.

Hurricane season runs through November 30. 

Boating and Surf Conditions

We spent today in an extreme risk of rip currents, and will carry at least a high risk into the upcoming weekend courtesy of a large, long period swell and crashing waves.

The Atlantic will be more like a washing machine, mushing up wave heights of six to eight, occasionally 10 feet high. This will lead to poor surfing conditions overall.

If you see a double red flag, it means the water is closed to swimming. A single red flag represents high surf and dangerous conditions, so heed the warnings from area life guards.
