Topsy turvy weather: Florida warming up but cold weather will return

A cold front will clear all of Florida by Tuesday evening.

Rain chances will be clearing out as dry air is moving across the Florida Peninsula.   Our outdoor comfort index will easily head for about a "9" on Tuesday.

Tuesday night, lows will drop off to levels we have not seen in a while. The warmest readings will be down in south Brevard County and the coolest readings will be in the 40s up near Ocala and Gainesville.

The lull in humidity and toasty temps will be short-lived, unfortunately.  More rain looks possible by Wednesday and Friday.

High temperatures by Thursday will peak well into the 80s with showers and storms likely Thursday night into Friday morning.

Behind that system, the weekend trends quite cool with clearing, sun-filled skies. Saturday morning offers the lowest temperatures, with the 30s over North Central Florida and the 40s south of that. There could be a little patchy frost over the far north even.
