ORLANDO, Fla. – A heat wave hit Central Florida on Wednesday as temperatures climbed to the mid-90s, but the "real feel" temperature pushed past 100 degrees.
"We hit a daytime high of 96 for the second day in a row," said Local 6 Chief Meteorologist Tom Sorrells.
The record heat for this date is 100 degrees, so no record was reached.
Marion County saw scattered showers Wednesday afternoon, but no other parts of Central Florida had showers on the radar.
"The temps tonight drop slowly," Sorrells said. "We will still be at 80 degrees at 11 p.m."
