Orlando weather: Weekend cold front will bring rain, cooler temperatures

Tonight's low: 65 degrees | Today's high: 85 degrees

Main weather concerns: Saturday will start off as a beautiful day across much of Central Florida with temperatures in the upper 60s.  Afternoon highs reach the low-80s with sunshine early in the day, but clouds will begin to move in over the afternoon.  Southerly winds could be breezy at times with gusts up to 20 mph.  Sunday will see highs only in the 50s and widespread showers.

BEACHES: Saturday will be a great morning to head to the beaches, though clouds will begin to thicken as the day progresses. Forecast highs will reach the low 80s. Make sure to swim near an open lifeguard stand as there is a moderate risk for rip currents. Sunday is a different story with temperatures dropping and widespread showers.

Sun and beautiful weather is expected on Saturday morning at the theme parks. Afternoon highs will reach the 80s. Make sure you pack a hat and sunglasses as the sun will be shining bright all day.

A cold front will arrive in Florida on Saturday bringing shower and thunderstorms activity. Coverage is at 50% mainly in the afternoon and evening hours across the Orlando metro. Lingering showers are possible Sunday.
