A ridge of high pressure sliding into the region will bring our wind around from the east-southeast today, ushering in warmer air and more moisture into the atmosphere.

The high for Friday is 85 degrees Watch out for strong Sunday storms

We woke up a little warmer today with temperatures in the upper 50s to lower 70s across Central Florida.

Today will be another mostly sunny day with highs in the low to mid-80s. Lows overnight will stay quite mild in the mid to upper 60s.

We’ll heat up even more for Saturday and may see many areas across Central Florida top 90 degrees.

Enough moisture and instability could lead to a 30-percent rain chance in the late evening as the sea breezes collide near Interstate 75.

Another sharp cold front will come at us Sunday. We’ll warm into the lower 80s with a gusty south wind.

A line of storms is forecast to sweep across the state in the afternoon, and a few may be strong, with damaging wind and small hail.

Behind the front, highs will dip into the lower 70s Monday.

An east to east-southeast swell will push waves up to around waist- to stomach-high with poor to fair surfing conditions overall. Sea surface temperatures will remain in the mid-60s along the Flagler and Volusia County coastline, up to the low 70s along the Brevard County coast. Today’s ultraviolet index is very high, which means less than 15 minutes of sun could lead to a sunburn.
