ORLANDO, Fla. — A diffuse warm front lifting across Central Florida this afternoon is drawing in deeper atmospheric moisture and providing the instability needed for scattered showers and storms.

Activity wraps up before 8 p.m. with a partly cloudy, warm, and muggy night ahead. A cool front sliding across the southeastern U.S. tomorrow will push by us tomorrow night. Ahead of it, scattered showers and storms are once again expected. We heat into the upper 80s close to 90 area wide, and may near record highs in a couple neighborhoods.

Behind the cool front tomorrow night, a much drier, nicer airmass briefly moves into Central Florida. We’re forecasting a mostly sunny sky with highs in the upper 70s to lower 80s. Dew points (measure of moisture in the atmosphere) drop into the comfortable category. Moisture and warmth return though by Thursday as a trough of low pressure upstream digs out and gives us a return flow. 

Rain coverage from Thursday through Sunday bumps up around 40 to 50-percent each day with highs back in the low to mid-80s. As dew points climb once again, the muggy feel to the air is back with us. We’ve passed the average start of dry season and don’t see it arriving in the next week to 10 days.


Very poor conditions are in the cards for local surfers as wave heights stay around one to two feet with an east-southeast trade swell. We still have just enough of a swell to create a moderate threat for rip currents, so use extra caution if swimming.

Sea surface temps are in the upper 70s along the Flagler and Volusia County coasts, to low 80s along Brevard’s coast. Boaters, wave heights off-shore of two to three feet won’t be too crazy. Keep an eye on the sky for scattered afternoon showers and storms.


In the tropics, all is quiet across the Atlantic basin and forecast to stay that way for at least the next week.
