Hot, hot, hot: Temperatures to soar in Central Florida

Orlando to see lower rain chances over weekend

ORLANDO, Fla. – It's going to be H-O-T this weekend in Central Florida.

"We will be pinpointing some drier air across the region," News 6 meteorologist Troy Bridges said. "That will lead to lower rain chances. Expect a 30 percent coverage of rain from Friday through Sunday."

Expect a few showers embedded with a few thunderstorms into the weekend, Bridges said.

"Temperatures, of course, will be much hotter," Bridges said.

Expect a high of 94 degrees on Friday. The average high on this date is 92.  

"We will stay in the mid-90s through the weekend," Bridges said.

Rain chances will be higher by Monday, with high temperature near 92.

"We only had a trace of rain on Thursday," Bridges said. "That puts our rain deficit in Orlando at 10.47 inches since January 1."

Pinpointing the tropics
