Orlando weather: High heat continues before cooler temperatures, rain arrive this weekend

Tonight's low: 64 degrees | Tomorrow's high: 87 degrees

Main weather concerns: Wednesday will be another warm day with mostly sunny skies in Central Florida. Highs will climb into the upper-80s in most areas including our east coast beaches. Skies remain dry.

A great day to head to the beach with highs in the mid to upper-80s. Winds will be out of the west at 10-15 mph with a moderate risk of rip currents.

UV is very high so don't forget to reapply that sunscreen!

Fair weather is expected at the parks today with temperatures climbing well into the 80s. We'll see plenty of sunshine all afternoon with a high near 87 degrees. Stay hydrated!

High pressure dominates this week meaning our temperatures continue to rise with little to no rain. Models are showing a front that could finally move into FL by this weekend, bringing a slight dip in temperatures and shower chances. Forecast highs will reach the low-80s by late weekend. 

Rain chances are on the rise to 30% coverage on Saturday with lingering showers on Sunday. Lows may even reach back into the upper-50s in some areas next Sunday morning!


The weather once again looks perfect for the Crew 6 launch at 12:34 a.m. Thursday morning. Our next system doesn't arrive until Saturday, so it'll be smooth sailing for any space departures over the next 72-84 hours.

At launch time, temperatures will hover around 66° on Cape Canaveral under mostly clear to partly cloudy skies. Winds on the ground will vary from 5-10 mph offshore, out of the southwest. 

The official forecast for the launch, tasked to the US Space Force 45th Weather Squadron at Patrick SFB, says there is a 90% favorable weather forecast at the time of the projected launch.
