Coldest weather in nearly 4 years on the way to Central Florida

Showers will continue throughout the evening with rainfall moving more towards the coast. 

We can expect mostly cloudy skies across Central Florida tonight with a low in the upper 50s for Orlando. For the end of the week, a strong cold front will move into the area Friday into Friday night. 


The latest rain forecast models confirm this for both the AM and PM hours today. Lows tonight with lots of clouds and a few showers around will be in the 50s, perhaps a few 40s over north Florida. 

If you're heading to the theme parks today, expect passing showers along with cool conditions in the 60s for tonight. The storm tracks across the U.S. remain rather active and the procession of cold fronts continue for Florida. 


A very strong Arctic front arrives in the area on Friday, increasing clouds again and raising the rain stakes.

Friday rain chances hang in the 40-50% range as scattered showers move through. 

Lows behind the front on Friday will fall into the mid to upper 30s. On Sunday morning, temperatures will drop to the lowest that we have seen in four years into the 20s for northern portions of our viewing area and below-freezing temperatures around Orlando.
