Local 6 meteorologist Troy Bridges' forecast for Friday, Feb. 22, 2013.


Lots of low-level moisture Friday morning caused low visibility and fog across Central Florida.

The high temperature will reach 85 degrees Friday afternoon in Orlando, and there's no chance of rain.

That will change, however, over the weekend.

The high on Saturday will also top out at 85, but rain chances increase to 20 percent across Central Florida.

"A front moving through the southeastern U.S. will move into Central Florida late on Saturday," Local 6 meteorologist Troy Bridges said.  "The front will stall out and bring a 40 percent chance for rain Sunday and Monday."

Rain could be a factor for the Daytona 500, which starts at 1 p.m. Sunday.  If the race is postponed, rain will also be a concern on Monday.
