Hot weather continues into start of workweek

Storm chances remain isolated over the next few days


ORLANDO, Fla. – There will be just a few clouds overhead tonight with lows expected to sit in the mid to upper 70s.

Monday looks like another hot one.

Highs will soar to the mid-90s while feeling like the triple digits. Late in the day, showers will develop and move toward inland zones.

The coast looks to remain overall mainly dry, while areas west of I-95 get a little more activity. Pockets of heavy rain are possible with any storm that develops. Rain chances are between 20% and 30%. Later in the week, the rain chances go back up, bringing daytime highs back to near average for this time of year. 

Beach forecast

Be on the lookout for a moderate threat for rip currents Sunday. Any storm chance is isolated at best and would mainly occur inland. Water temperatures are running in the lower 80s.

Tropical update

Barry is currently a tropical depression over northwestern Louisiana. It will continue to lose some steam, but it will still be a heavy rainmaker. Rainfall accumulations between 4 and 8 inches are expected into the lower Mississippi Valley through the first part of the workweek. 

The NHC is not expecting other tropical development for the next five days.
