Temps staying warm as humidity continues in Orlando area

Highs in 90s expected Monday; 20 percent coverage rain on tap

ORLANDO, Fla. – Heat is expected to continue in the Orlando area for the start of the work week, with humidity making temperatures feel even warmer.

Temperatures will reach highs in the low 90s. With the humidity in play, they will feel as though they're in the upper 90s. That's around the average for this time of year in Orlando.

"Be sure to drink lots of water to stay hydrated while out and about," News 6 meteorologist Samara Cokinos said. "If you work outdoors, dress in light-colored clothing and remember to take breaks in the shade to give your body a break from the direct sunshine."

Later Monday, skies will be partly cloudy and temperatures will drop to the low 70s in the evening.
