ORLANDO, Fla. – High pressure sitting out in the Atlantic will continue to pull our winds in from the Southwest.
This weather setup will keep pumping in the heat and humidity throughout the afternoon. Highs around 4 p.m. should reach the mid 90s with the feels like temperatures hovering between 100-105 degrees.
The only relief Saturday afternoon will be the timing of our sea breeze storms; the forecast indicates that the West Coast breeze will be strong enough to push most of the activity towards the eastern half of central Florida later on today.
With the extreme heating of the day, some of these storms will have the potential to become severe, so make sure to keep it tuned to your Local6 weather app and ClickOrlando.com for the latest updates.
Along with celebrating Father's Day on Sunday, we will also be officially ringing in the start of summer at 12:38 p.m.
The summer solstice marks the longest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere and the turning point after which the sun starts rising later and setting earlier. We can expect the first few days of summer to remain typical for this time of the year with highs in the mid 90s and rain chances between 30-50 percent.
