A big change in our weather pattern is expected by Thursday as a powerful front moves into central Florida.

Long-term models show conditions deteriorating from late Wednesday through Thursday morning. A marginal risk of severe thunderstorms cannot be ruled out, especially north of Orlando as convection is likely. The latest update shows an 80% chance of storms by Thursday.

Once the front clears, cooler air will roll in, keeping highs in the mid 70s through Friday and into the weekend.
