ORLANDO, Fla. — Another hot day across the peninsula, as highs Wednesday soared up into the low to mid-90s and our feel-like temp hovered either side of 100.
- Some strong evening storms
- Thursday high temps at 94 degrees

A ridge of high pressure is dominating our weather pattern is slipping south, allowing a south-southwest flow and a much slower movement inland of the east coast sea breeze.
Although we have plenty of dry air aloft, we were able to kick up some hit and miss boundary collision storms through the evening hours, some of which were on the strong side.
We rinse and repeat Thursday and Friday, with highs back into the low to mid-90s and rain coverage at 30 to 40 percent with pockets of drier air settle into the atmosphere from time to time.
As we look toward the weekend, low pressure will dig across the southeastern U.S. and allow moisture to stream back into the state.

We’ll keep rain chances around 40 percent Saturday, then bump them to 50 percent Sunday. Only a slight drop into the upper 80s and lower 90s is expected area wide.
A more typical pattern sets up Monday and much of next week, with daily rain coverage around 30 to 40 percent and highs close to seasonable levels.
Unfortunately for local surfers, a small east-southeast trade swell and waves of only one to two feet will create poor to very poor surfing conditions the next couple days.
We’ll have just enough of a long period swell to create a moderate rip risk as well, so use caution when swimming.
In the tropics, Debby is struggling in the north Atlantic and is expected to fall apart soon.
No new development is forecast in the Atlantic basin over the next five to seven days.
