The heat is on! 😳☀🥵😎😍

Hey Insiders! Meteorologist Troy Bridges here. We had a few strong storms over the past week, with one spinning up an EF1 tornado in Brevard County on Wednesday.

Along with the storms, the summer heat has also arrived — even though Summer doesn’t officially begin until June 21.


Rain chances are fairly high through the weekend and so are those temperatures! There could also be a few strong storms Friday.

High temperatures will stay in the low 90s!
