Expect a high of 85 in Orlando, one degree shy of the record set in 1967. The average high for this time of year in Orlando is 71.

"Expect a 30 percent chance of rain on Tuesday and Wednesday, with a high of 78 on Wednesday and a high of 70 on Friday," Bridges said.

Morning lows will be near 70 degrees for the next couple days, but the low will be in the low 50s for the end of the week.

"We will see a chance of a few storms Wednesday and then the cooler air works in," Bridges said.
