Tuesday starts out foggy before rain, and a cold front heads into Central Florida
Orlando, Florida. – Big changes are headed for Central Florida over the next 24 hours as a stalled cold front begins to push south across the rest of the state.
These changes have already been noticeable as highs reached the mid to upper 70s earlier this afternoon. The official high temperature in Orlando was 77 degrees. Compared to Sunday, that is 20 degrees higher than the official high temperature at 4pm yesterday.
Humid air was another noticeable change as it warmed. Scattered showers and an isolated thunderstorm or two will occur late afternoon into evening.
We can’t rule out some rain tonight, but fog will be the big story by tomorrow morning.

Lows range from the upper 50s to mid 60s.
Areas of patchy fog settle in after 10 p.m. The fog will continue to thicken, becoming denser as it spreads during the morning commute.
Passengers should be prepared to add a little extra time to reach your destination. Don’t forget to use low beams as well.
Visibility may be less than a mile at times. This is especially true for everyone west of Interstate 95. Dense fog warnings may be issued.
The fog will continue until 9 or 10 am
On Tuesday, rain chances will be a little higher as a strong cold front approaches.
Scattered rain will begin at sunrise northwest of Interstate 4.
By lunchtime, not only will it be warm in the low 70s, but showers and thunderstorms will increase as it pushes south thanks to the cold front.
Much of the heavy rain clears up by early evening. High pressure will strengthen behind the front, pushing cold air into central Florida.
Tuesday night will get cold with lows in the 30s and 40s.
Wind chill values will range from the upper 20s (northwest of I-4) to the 30s near Interstate 4 and Orlando.
A freeze watch has been issued for central and western Marion County beginning Wednesday at 3 a.m. until 9 a.m
The cool airflow keeps it cool in the middle of the week. Wednesday’s highs only rebounded into the 50s before falling back into the 30s and 40s that night.
It’s expected to return to the low 70s with rain by Friday before the next cold front arrives Friday night.
