Central Florida could see record-breaking temperatures next week. Look at your forecast

ORLANDO, Fla. – Summer weather will keep a firm grip on Central Florida through the weekend, with even hotter weather expected next week.

Sea breezes from the east coast will develop again late Friday morning and then move inland during the afternoon. Winds will increase along the breeze to around 10-15 mph.

Compared to earlier in the week, the additional dry air on Friday means there is a 10% chance of rain by the afternoon.

A small burst of moisture from a weakening front over the Southeast will further destabilize the atmosphere over the weekend. Models show the chance of rain increasing to 20% on Saturday and up to 30% on Sunday. A few isolated thunderstorms that manage to form may produce a few lightning strikes and brief downpours.

Chance of rain in the next 3 days

Temperatures will remain warmer than normal (average: 86°) throughout the weekend, with highs in the mid-80s along the coast and near 90 degrees in inland neighborhoods.

Heat wave next week

A large ridge of high pressure will form over the Gulf of Mexico, causing temperatures to rise through next week with no rain in sight.

Highs will rise to the mid to upper 90s inland and low 90s on the coast, approaching record-breaking territory on Thursday and Friday.
