Orlando weather: Dry Thursday ahead of late week storms, cold front arrives in Central Florida

Tonight's low: 60 degrees | Today's high: 80 degrees

Main weather concerns: Skies will be dry on Thursday with a mix of sun and clouds. Highs will reach the low-80s across the Orlando metro and near 76 along the east coast. Warming temperatures continue into Friday ahead of an advancing cold front late week.

It is a beautiful day to head to the beach. Temperatures will reach the mid to upper-70s. Surf will reach 2-3 feet with a moderate risk for rip currents. Local winds will be out of the southeast around 5-10mph. The UV Index remains high, so don't forget to reapply sunscreen.

A nice day at the theme parks! Highs warm to near 80 degrees with mostly sunny skies. A hat and sunglasses will be needed this afternoon and don't forget to stay hydrated.

Warm weather returns through Friday. Expect lots of sunshine with highs in the low to mid-80. 

Our next rain chance arrives with a late week front that could bring afternoon showers and storms by Friday and Saturday. Could be a few stronger storms in North Florida on Friday, there is a 1/5 'Possible' risk for damaging wind gusts. Rain chances reach 50% coverage on Saturday.
