Orlando Weather Forecast: Cold front spark showers, storms before temperature drop

ORLANDO, Fla. - A cold will continue to move through Central Florida this evening and exit overnight. Scattered showers with a thunderstorm or two remain possible ahead of this front. Behind the front, cooler air ushers on Tuesday, with a breezy north wind making a return.

Lows will start out in the mid to upper 50s under mostly cloudy skies. With drier air arriving, we'll see sunnier weather by the afternoon and highs in the mid to upper 60s.

The rest of the week, we will have cool mornings (the 40s & 50s) with highs gradually warming into the low to mid-70s. We remain dry through this stretch. Our forecast changes for this weekend with a Gulf low and front expected to meander over Florida and increase rain chances and a few storms. Highs will also drop into the 50s and 60s by Sunday.

Our next rainmaker will arrive just in time for the weekend, which is not ideal timing for the Daytona 500.

Scattered showers look to arrive late Saturday, lingering into Sunday. Off-and-on showers could cause some hiccups on race day. If you have plans on heading out to Daytona, stay close to the forecast for more updates throughout this week.
