Forecasters say a cold front will move through Florida Monday night, bringing rain to the central part of the state. The National Weather Service in Melbourne says to expect a few thunderstorms to accompany the front in the Orlando area north Monday night. Then after the front passes through, forecasters say strong north to northeast winds will cause hazardous boating conditions Tuesday and Wednesday. A moderate risk of rip currents is also forecast for the rest of this week, into the early part of next week.

The rain is expected to clear out by Tuesday afternoon, and the Daytona Beach forecast for Christmas Day presently calls for mostly sunny skies and a high near 67. Winds will be northeast at 10 to 15 miles per hour.
