Cold front to pass through this week, bringing cooler and drier weather

The weekend has felt a little more like summer in east Central Florida. Temperatures were in the low-90s with afternoon thunderstorms.

Things will be changing by the middle of this week as a cool front sweeps through the region Tuesday night or Wednesday morning. 

Ahead of this system, we can expect deep moisture to continue. We will keep the 60 to 70 percent chance for showers and afternoon thunderstorms, bringing heavy rain and dangerous cloud-to-ground lightning.
