Scattered rain likely today, building heat later into week

Heat index values should reach triple digits by mid-week

ORLANDO, Fla. – It’s a typical summer-like setup this weekend with daytime highs in the lower 90s, as well as scattered rain and thunderstorms.

As we head into the work week, scattered rain is also possible on Monday. Beginning on Tuesday, an area of high pressure will begin to build and expand over the area, allowing temperatures to soar in the upper 90s by Wednesday.

Rain chances are expected to be between 20-30% daily beginning on Tuesday. Heat Index values most likely will climb into the triple digits by Wednesday and that can be dangerous for people who work outside.
