Orlando weather: Passing showers possible across Central Florida on Friday but mostly dry, cloudy

Tonight's low: 70 degrees | Tomorrow's high: 87 degrees | 

Main weather concerns:
We have two more warm and humid days on Friday and Saturday before a strong old front moves in on Saturday night. It will be so much cooler and nicer on Sunday and Monday with low humidity and delightful temperatures. However, it doesn't last long.

It will be another breezy day at the beaches with mixed skies and highs in the low-mid 80s on Friday. Winds will be from the ENE at 10-15mph, perhaps a higher gust during the afternoon hours. Isolated showers are possible with coverage at 20%. Rip current risk remains high. The surf zone will feature breaking waves in the 3-5 feet as a mix of swell rolls in.

Mixed skies are likely at the theme parks today. Afternoon highs will reach the mid to upper-80s with mainly dry conditions.

A cool front will sweep across the state late Saturday night. This front won't bring much, if any, moisture to central Florida, but it will bring cooler temperatures. Sunday and Monday will feature wake-up temperatures in the 60s in Orlando and 50s in our northern viewing area. Afternoon highs dip into the low-80s into early next week.

Along the cold front which arrives midweek, low pressure is expected to form and pull tropical moisture and torrential rain back into Florida late-week. It's too soon to say, but we could see flash flooding-type rains and there's an outside chance it could become a tropical system or subtropical system.

Tropical Storm Philippe is bringing heavy rainfall over the British and U.S. Virgin Islands. Philippe will take a Northerly track over the next several days as a tropical storm, all while remaining far from any land. The latest African wave we're watching stands at a 30% chance of development over the next 7 days. 

Most models take this feature on a northerly track while over the tropical Atlantic. Depend on the FOX 35 Storm Team for more updates.
