Another hot Saturday in store for central Florida
Afternoon thunderstorms likely
ORLANDO, Fla. – Saturday is another hot day!
We will get to a high of 96 degrees in Orlando but it will feel more like 104 by 3 p.m. All of central Florida will feel like its in the 100s Saturday, so make sure you hydrate and stay in the shade if you're headed out and about during the day.
Rain chances aren't too high for Saturday. We have a 30 percent chance of afternoon showers and possible thunderstorms mixed in. Rain moves onto the west coast by 2 p.m. and then by 4 p.m. the interior of central Florida will be seeing heavy rain.
A severe thunderstorm warning was issued by the National Weather Service for western Seminole County until 7:15 p.m. Saturday.
These storms will move off the east coast by Saturday night leaving us partly cloudy. Saturday night's low is not much cooler, 75 degrees with SE winds at 5-10 mph.
If you are headed out on the beach Saturday the UV index is high so make sure you wear lots of sunscreen. The rip currents are also at a moderate risk so always swim near a lifeguard.
For Sunday it's about the same story, high of 95 degrees with a 30 percent chance of afternoon showers once again. Finally, by Tuesday, we see temperatures getting closer to normal. The high from Tuesday all the way to Friday will be 94 degrees with rain chances finally getting up to 40 percent.
This is more around the average amount of rain for this time of year so it will help us stay a little cooler.
