Heat, dry weather continues for Central Florida

Flirting with records in part of region

ORLANDO, Fla.- – Saturday night will be nice with slightly lower humidity and temperatures around the mid-70s, so it won't feel too sticky under mainly clear skies.

On Sunday, there will be another round of sunshine and heat.

Highs will reach the mid-90s while feeling like the upper 90s.

Most areas will stay out of the triple digits tomorrow, and with so much dry air around, we will remain rain- free.

If you're headed to the beach, remember to swim safe near a lifeguard. There's a moderate rip current risk, and the UV Index will be very high. It only takes minutes for you to burn. Take necessary precautions. 

A few stray showers are possible Monday and Tuesday, but better rain chances return later in the workweek. Highs remain in the mid-to low 90s. 

Tropical Update:


Post-Tropical Cyclone Dorian continues to race through Nova Scotia.

Although this storm has lost its tropical characteristics, it's still producing hurricane-force winds as it passes by. Tropical Storm Gabrielle in the middle of the Atlantic is not expected to impact land. There are two tropical waves in the Atlantic. One is about 300 miles northeast of the Leeward Islands and is given little chance at 20% to develop as it moves north of Puerto Rico. 

The other is just west of the Cabo Verde islands moving toward the west. The National Hurricane Center now gives this wave a 40% chance of development over the Atlantic. This is still very far away and no threat to anyone right now. We will continue to watch the tropical wave for any changes.
