Orlando weather: Rain kicks off weekend in Central Florida ahead of cold front

Tonight's low: 65 degrees | Today's high: 85 degrees | Rain: Northern counties

Main weather concerns: On this Friday, the FOX 35 STORM TEAM is tracking an incoming cold front. This front will serve to increase clouds, rain chances, and southwest winds. 

BEACHES: The beaches will see very warm temps on Saturday. South-southwest breezes will drive the warmth and skies will feature a blend of sun and clouds. 

Rip current risk is moderate to high. Surf zone features the ongoing pulse of Northeast groundswell with SSW winds keeping conditions on the cleaner side for much of the day. Surf height remains around waist-chest high-fun at the right sandbar and right tide time.

THEME PARKS: A great weekend to head to the theme parks. Highs park-side will reach the mid-80s with mixed skies. 

OUTLOOK: The weekend brings great weather and a time change! Don't forget to "SPRING FORWARD" one hour before hitting the sheets Saturday night! Expect plenty of sunshine over the weekend with highs in the 80s & periodic breezes. By Monday, the next front arrives.
