Things started to wind down due to our latest cold front that finally swept across the region. Dry air associated with the front swept in through during the mid-morning hours and leftover showers were pushed south of the region by noon.
Following the front, Central Florida was filled with clear skies and warm temperatures. Highs Sunday afternoon will be in the mid to upper-70s across the viewing area. Temperatures will be around 78 degrees with things looking warm for most of the week.
