Records could once again fall Monday with warm temps in forecast

Summer-like weather continues to start workweek

ORLANDO, Fla- – Most of the rain is done for Sunday night.

Lows will settle into the mid 60s, with patchy fog developing well after midnight. Some of the fog will linger for a few hours Monday morning, then more sunshine and heat is on the way.

The area of high pressure over the Atlantic Ocean will help lift the cold front that’s over the deep South and stay out of Central Florida. This means the southerly wind will continue to usher in near-record heat once again.

On Sunday, records were broken in Orlando, Leesburg, and Sanford, with highs in the mid-to-upper 80s. Daytona Beach tied it’s record of 83. Look for more of the same Monday, but with no rain in the mix and a bit more sunshine.

Highs tomorrow soar back to the mid 80s coming, within a degree or so of the record heat. The records are: Orlando and Melbourne at 86 and Daytona Beach at 85. We’ll be watching to see if those records are broken or tied.

On the water, the seas will continue to average 6-8 feet offshore. A Small Craft Advisory is in place through 4 p.m. Monday. If you plan on taking advantage of the beach in the warm weather, just take it easy in the water. The rip current risk is still high and will be that way especially during times of high tide.

Looks like the parade of 80-degree weather will continue for much of the workweek. A few showers return by Friday. The next cool down will happen over the weekend. Sunday will be near 70 degrees.

Beach and Boating:

It is still dangerous on the beach or out at sea. The rip current threat remains elevated and the ocean rough.
