ORLANDO, Fl. – Happy Sunday! An area of high pressure slowly begins to develop near Central Florida. Drier and sunny conditions are in the forecast for at least the next three days before a cold front arrives around midweek.
Daytime highs are expected to warm into the lower 80s this afternoon with slightly breezy conditions. Rain chances remain non-existent across the area.
Monday and Tuesday expect pleasant weather conditions with highs near average in the lower 80s.
By Wednesday, a cold front is expected to approach the area from the northwest kicking up the winds and increasing rain chances to 20-30%. Pockets of heave rain will be possible.
When that front exits, Thanksgiving Day looks nice but cooler than usual. Highs are expected to climb into the lower to middle 70s under mostly sunny skies. No rain is expected.
Thursday night is expected to be chilly with low temperatures falling into the middle to upper 50s across the area and staying breezy.
It’ll be a chilly start to Friday morning and staying breezy.

Clean Plate: South Florida restaurants with zero violations from recent inspections
FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. – Receiving zero violations on an unannounced food safety inspection isn’t easy, but there are several places that do it.
Local 10 News is highlighting them on the latest edition of Clean Plate.
Local 10′s Jeff Weinsier confused Papi of Papi’s New York Pizza in Fort Lauderdale when he showed up asking him about a recent food safety inspection.
Born in Italy, Papi began helping his father make pizza in Queens, New York. Then he got tired of shoveling snow.
His place down here is on the corner of Powerline Road and McNab Road in the Peachtree Plaza shopping center.
A specialty there is cleanliness.
Not only did he have zero violations on the latest inspection, but he also had zero violations on the inspection before that.
“I appreciate that,” Papi said. “I’m here for 30 years so, I’m doing the best (I can), I work about 14 hours a day. Sunday I’m closed and people complain, but I have to do my laundry and take care of my family right?”
Papi insisted on showing Weinsier his cleaning products. He’s been tossing dough and saucing it up for three decades there and claims clean is on the menu.
“It is important because it shows in your food,” he said.
Papi’s philosophy is don’t put anything off.
“My rule is, if something happens, I fix right away,” he said.
Moving across the county to Coral Springs, China Sea is located on West Sample Road just west of State Road 7 and has been family owned for 15 years.
Everyone who works there is related.
The manager is a man they call Zo. He was working with his cousins, sister and mother.
Like Papi, he too claims nothing can be put off if there is an issue.
Inside the Weston Town Center shopping center is Naturissimo.
They claim to be the largest all-natural and healthy food chain in Ecuador.
All natural baked goods, with cheesy filled breads and yogurt based fruit drinks are on the menu there.
They have very strict cleaning standards.
Naturissimo actually has two South Florida locations, in Weston and in Doral, and as hard as it is to get zero violations at one place, both locations were recently perfect.
The Doral location is 3887 Northwest 107th Avenue and the owner told Local 10 News by phone that he spot checks both locations every week and is demanding, and his employees know it.

Florida man, already facing death for a 1998 murder, now indicted for a 2nd. Detectives fear others
FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. — A convicted murderer already on Florida’s death row for the 1998 slaying of one woman is now charged with a second killing that happened two weeks later, with investigators believing he may be tied to even more deaths.
The Broward County Sheriff’s Office announced Tuesday that former mortician Lucious Boyd, 64, has been indicted for the murder of 41-year-old Eileen Truppner, a mother of two, a former businesswoman and native of Puerto Rico whose body was found along a highway west of Fort Lauderdale in December 1998. He is already facing execution for the kidnapping, rape and murder of 21-year-old nursing student Dawnia Dacosta earlier that month.
Sheriff Gregory Tony, Detective Zack Scott and Capt. John Brown said that Truppner’s body had been unidentified until earlier this year when its DNA was matched to her family. DNA testing of evidence left by the killer matched Boyd, they said.
“For 20 some years, there had been no justice, no closure. (Truppner) is no longer faceless. She is no longer nameless,” Tony said at a news conference.
Scott and Brown said detectives throughout Florida are now looking at Boyd as a possible suspect in unsolved killings from the 1990s as he was known to travel the state. Newspaper accounts from the 1990s say one of his girlfriends went missing during a trip with him, but he has never been charged in that case.
“Because we suspect him of other ones, we strongly suspect he’s a serial killer,” Brown said.
Nancy Truppner told reporters Tuesday that her sister had come to South Florida in the mid-1990s to learn English, but then had mental health issues after the birth of her children.
“My sister was very kind with a good heart. She never criticized anybody, she never hurt anybody,” she said. ‘She did not deserve to die the way she died.”
The Broward County Public Defender’s Office, which will likely represent Boyd, had no comment Tuesday.
Boyd was found not guilty of a man’s murder in 1993 after he claimed self-defense and was acquitted of rape in 1997. At his 2002 trial for Dacosta’s slaying, which resulted in a conviction and death sentence, he insisted that law enforcement had a vendetta against him.
It was a DNA swab taken while he awaited trial for that alleged rape that tied him to Dacosta’s murder.
Evidence presented at that trial showed that Dacosta’s car had run out of gas and she had walked to a filling station to get some. Witnesses said Boyd, driving alone in a church van, offered to take her back to her car. Her body, stabbed 36 times, was found three days later. Boyd’s DNA was found on her body and blood was found in his apartment when it was searched four months later.
A few months before Dacosta’s slaying, Boyd’s 19-year-old girlfriend, Patrece Alston, had disappeared during a trip she took with the then 39-year-old to central Florida, according to newspaper stories from that period. She has never been found.
Boyd told conflicting tales to Alston’s relatives, saying he had dropped her off near her grandmother’s house or at a grocery store, those news stories said. He refused to talk to detectives. They said then that without a body, they couldn’t charge him.
Detectives said Tuesday they have no idea how Truppner crossed paths with Boyd, but they guess he took advantage of her mental illness.
“He’s a predator and he sees his opportunities,” Brown said.
Florida lottery winner has less than week to claim $44 million prize before they lose it
This summer, someone walked into a Central Florida gas station and purchased a winning Quick Pick lottery ticket. That person now has less than a week to claim their prize before they forfeit a whopping $44 million.
The unclaimed ticket will expire Dec. 11, unless the ticket holder comes forward, according to the Florida Lottery.
The winning numbers from the June 14 drawing are 09-13-15-46-51-52.
The ticket was purchased at a Sunoco Express gas station in Kissimmee, Florida.
Prizes must be claimed within 180 days of the drawing or the ticket will expire, according to the lottery.
A portion of every Florida Lottery ticket purchased goes to the Educational Enhancement Trust Fund, which funnels into the state’s public education system.
When a ticket expires, state law requires 80% of the unclaimed prize goes to the education fund. The remaining 20 percent is returned to the prize pool for future prizes.
