Now that Tropical Storm Debby is gone leaving clear skies, the heat is kicking up in Central Florida.
Friday was a record-setting day with temperatures in the 90s, continuing into Saturday, which is projected to have highs of 92 degrees.
Sunday isn't expected to go up into the 90s, with a high temperature predicted at 89 degrees.
But as the temperatures go up, so does the water temperature-meaning the risk of amoeba and other bacteria forming in freshwater lakes and rivers. On Friday, Orange County officials closed the lake portion of Moss Park in Orlando because of high levels of bacterial contamination in the water.
There have been more than 100 cases of amoebic infection over the last 50 years, and just one survivor. The parasites kill people, on average, in just 10 days.
