Rain soaks Central Florida before beautiful weather, cooler temps move in

A cold front is working through Central Florida on Wednesday morning. 

 Showers and storms are plentiful for early to mid-morning with beautiful weather following up right behind the departing system. Rain chances will fall quickly after 9 a.m. around Orlando and points North.

Lingering showers can be expected in South Brevard County up to about lunchtime with clearing there as we head into the early afternoon hours.

Our outdoor comfort index settles at about an 8 today. The front will scour out the clouds and moisture so things should be looking and feeling great by this afternoon.

Expect highs to remain in the 70s around Orlando, perhaps a few areas in North Central Florida staying in the cooler 60s.

The next rain maker arrives on Saturday as low pressure moves in from the Gulf of Mexico.

As of right now, it looks like showers beginning Saturday morning with a few isolated storms Saturday afternoon. This system could produce quite a bit of rain on Saturday so maybe have a plan "B" if you have plans outdoors. Behind this front, the weather for Sunday looks amazing with highs in the 60s, breezy winds, and loads of sunshine.
