ORLANDO, Fla. - Central Florida is looking at a hot Memorial Day Monday.
The interior portions of Central Florida will be in the mid to high 90s, even nearing 100 in the Villages with a high of 98 and 98 in Kissimmee.
The east coast will be warm with the wind coming from the northwest at 5 mph.
Orlando will reach a high of 96 Monday with high humidity mixed in. Residents could feel more like we are in the triple digits by the afternoon. Monday will also be very dry with a 0 percent coverage of rain so our fire danger will still be very high today. Orlando could also reach the record high of 99 degrees.
Monday is great day to go to the beach and celebrate Memorial Day. Daytona will reach a high of 92 with the water temperature sitting at 75. The seas are only 1-2 feet but there is a moderate rip current risk, so make sure you are swimming near a lifeguard.
Monday night Central Florida drops to a low of 73 degrees under a mostly clear sky.
For the week ahead, moisture starts to build and the area will see chances of rain starting Tuesday and continuing into the next weekend.
