ORLANDO, Fla. – High temperatures in the mid-90s will linger in Central Florida for a couple more days.

"We are still pinpointing drier air in the mid- and upper levels of the atmosphere," News 6 meteorologist Troy Bridges said. "This will translate into low rain chances Wednesday, and there will also be only a 10 percent chance on Thursday."

Rain chances increase to 30 percent on Friday and 50 percent over the weekend.

Afternoon high temperatures will reach the mid-90s on Wednesday and Thursday.

The record high for Orlando on this date is 97, set in 1921. The average high is 88.

Melbourne and Daytona Beach will be close to record highs. Melbourne is expected to see a high of 92, one shy of the record, set in 1993. Daytona Beach will reach a high of 91, three degrees short of the record, set in 1939.

Highs will be in the mid- and upper 80s for the weekend and next week.
