Central Florida on track for record hot summer
Its no surprise that the summer months are filled with heat and humidity here in Central Florida. But at this pace, it looks like Summer 2020 could be one for the record books. And now with the completion of July, we are back into the top ten category for the majority of Central Florida. July 2020 temperatures were some of the hottest on record for parts of Central Florida. Although we didnt hit any record daily highs, the warm weather stayed steady enough to heat us into record breaking territory for the second consecutive month.
Chance of storms pick up heading into the weekend
This is all thanks to a plume of tropical moisture over the Bahamas that will track towards the state. Although the bulk of the moisture will remain across South Florida, we will see a slightly enhanced chance of rain. Tropical moisture staying south (WKMG 2020)The latest models show no sign of our weather pattern breaking down anytime during the next seven days. A large ridge of high pressure will keep a similar setup to Friday, with a sturdy onshore breeze. As of now, we are not expecting any tropical development in the next two days
Heat continues, rain chances coming back ahead of July Fourth
The heating trend continues across Central Florida Monday with little relief in sight. News 6 is pinpointing the tropics, as an area of showers and thunderstorms are associated with the tropical wave located over the central tropical Atlantic. The system only has a 10% chance of development within the next five days, as well as the next two days. Rain chances are only at 30% for Monday and Tuesday but will increase to 50% for Wednesday and Thursday end up to 60% for Friday Saturday and Sunday. Saturday is the Fourth of July and it will be hot as a firecracker with a high of 95 with rain chances increasing through the afternoon with a few thunderstorms at 60%.
Near-record heat Friday, air quality unhealthy for sensitive groups
A heat advisory is in effect again for Polk and Sumter counties as the heat index has the best chance to climb to 110 degrees or hotter in these areas. The heat stays elevated like this through the weekend with actual air temperatures in the mid-to-upper 90s. Air quality has moved into the unsafe for unusually sensitive groups category Friday. The haze will continue to stay in our sky courtesy of dust that has moved in from the Sahara Desert in Africa. Rain and storm chances start to increase by the end of next with temperatures staying hot over the next seven days.
Feels like temperatures could reach 110 across parts of Central Florida
With the humidity factored in it will feel more like 100-105 degrees again across most of Central Florida. That is why a heat advisory has been issued for Sumter county by the National Weather Service in Tampa. A heat advisory means that feels like temperatures will routinely be in the 105-110 degree threshold and heat-related illnesses are possible. The relatively drier atmosphere due to the dust is keeping rain chances on the lower side and allowing temperatures to heat up. Storm chances stay at 30 percent to close out the workweek.
Feels-like temperatures to reach 105 before afternoon storms
ORLANDO, Fla. Halfway through the workweek and Wednesday will continue the hot day into a stormy afternoon trend Central Florida has been experiencing over the last few days.
