Southwest winds will crank up today. That means the heat is on. We'll have partly sunny skies and a chance for a few showers and storms during the afternoon. Any storms that develop will have the chance to be strong, with high wind being the main threat. Temperatures will be slightly warmer than on Friday, in the middle to upper 80s. The humidity will make it feel more like the low 90s. A similar forecast will follow for Sunday.
The extended outlook points toward a stronger cold front headed toward Central Florida by next Tuesday into Wednesday, with a greater risk of widespread thunderstorms and a return to more seasonable temperatures.
