ORLANDO, Fla. — It was another chilly start for our Tuesday with temperatures in the 40s. Parts of Marion County dropped into the upper 30s.

We were able to warm to around 70 degrees for the afternoon under mostly sunny skies. We’ll stay quiet heading into Wednesday, but clouds and rain will begin to increase late and continue into Thursday.

Temperatures stay in the 70s through Thursday and then another drop heading into the weekend.

Mostly clear skies are in the forecast through the overnight hours. Temperatures will not be as chilly, but will still drop into the upper 40s to low 50s.

We’ll begin to see an increase in cloud cover as we head into Wednesday afternoon as a warm front moves closer. There will be a slight chance for a few showers late in the day, but the majority of the rain will hold off until Thursday.

Showers and storms will be possible throughout Thursday as the warm front lifts north and a cold front slides in. Some of the storms have the potential to be strong with gusty wind and an isolated tornado possible. Heavy rain could cause some minor flooding issues.

Showers will stick around into Friday before clearing by the weekend. Temperatures will be in the mid to low 60s Friday through Sunday.

Christmas Eve and Christmas Day look quiet and seasonable at this point. There is a chance for a few coastal showers on Christmas, but the chance is low for now.

Surf Conditions

Beach and boating conditions look good for one more day, but will be rough with an approaching system Thursday.
