ORLANDO, Fla. — Temperatures quickly warmed back into the mid to upper 80s Thursday afternoon with Leesburg even tying its old record of 87 degrees.

Slightly cooler temperatures along the east coast where we had a nice breeze coming in off of the Atlantic. A few clouds moved through from time to time, but we still had plenty of sunshine throughout the day.

We’ll stay dry Friday and into the weekend as temperatures get even hotter.

Mostly clear skies are in the forecast through the overnight hours. Temperatures will fall into the mid to upper 60s with the potential for some patchy fog as we head toward daybreak.

High pressure quickly builds back over the region overnight giving us another stagnant stretch of hot, dry weather. A sun-filled sky is set to heat us well above average into the mid to upper 80s near the coast and lower 90s inland where we will flirt with records.

Even hotter air is on the way this weekend under a mostly sunny sky. Records are expected again inland with highs topping the low to mid-90s. A high of 95 in Orlando Sunday would tie a record set WAY back in 1920.

We keep the low 90s around Monday and Tuesday before a system to our north nudges across the peninsula. Although it won't bring significant rain, we will take anything we can get Tuesday night into Wednesday. Cooler air moves into Central Florida by the end of next week.

Beach and Boating Conditions

While staying isolated, you may decide to head outside for a bike ride or sit by the pool. Keep in mind the UV index will remain very high with only about 15 minutes for a sunburn to begin. Make sure you apply sunscreen!
