“We are pinpointing more heat as we head into the next several days,” News 6 meteorologist Troy Bridges said.

High temperatures will be in the upper 80s in the Orlando through the weekend.

Orlando will top off Wednesday near 88 degrees. The average high on this date is 78. The record high is 92, set in 1921.
