ORLANDO, Fla.  Dry air brought sunny skies and temperatures in the upper 80s and low 90s Tuesday.

Our overnight forecast will remain pretty quiet, but some changes are on the way for Wednesday.

A front move closer to Central Florida will increase the chance for rain slightly and help to knock temperatures back a bit. This front will drop south Thursday and lower temperatures even more.

Mostly clear skies are expected through the overnight hours. Temperatures will fall into the mid to low 70s.

The mostly sunny weather will continue throughout the day on Wednesday. A front coming down from the north-northeast will bring increased moisture, so there is a slightly higher chance of showers and thunderstorms.

Winds will be breezy out of the northeast, which will help to lower temperatures slightly to around 90 degrees. As the front moves south, we’ll only see spotty showers the rest of the week with temperatures only in the mid to upper 80s.
