Main meteorological problems:
Mostly sunny skies this Friday with highs in the mid 80s. Best chance for a shower remains in the southern viewing area – South Brevard/Osceola counties. Coverage there lies in the 20-30% range and mostly during the afternoon hours. The wind will pick up a bit from the north-northeast, the strongest along the Atlantic beaches.
The beaches look okay this Friday. Expect a few passing clouds and local breezes at 10-15 mph. Isolated passing showers will be possible on dry southern Brevard County beaches north of it. The highs on the beach side are close to 80 degrees. The risk of a rip current is moderate and the surf remains in the 1-3 foot range in a bumpy swell from the northeast.
The theme parks will feature dry conditions with mixed skies. The peaks there reached the mid-1980s.
The weekend is looking good in Central Florida. This weekend’s highs were in the mid-80s. Dry weather is forecast for these outdoor shots. A stronger front next week will move through the region by Wednesday. Cooler air with more punch will enter behind this front, sending highs into the 70s and lows into the 40s (northern) 50s (closer to Orlando)
