You thought Memorial Day weekend was hot? Tuesday temperatures could get even hotter.
Channel 9 meteorologist Brian Shields said Central Floridians can expect close to record heat on Tuesday.
“It could be our hottest day in about three years,” he said.
Taking into account the humidity, the temperatures could feel as if they were around 105 degrees.
Playground equipment easily heats up. Make sure to check before you allow your kids on them. Heated slides and swings have been known to cause serious burns kids' delicate skin.
It's a good idea to walk your dogs on the grass. Asphalt could reach temperatures above 150 degrees on days where the air temperature is 90 degrees.
It's 3pm... Much of Central Florida feels like in the triple digits. Stay hydrated, this heat is not to be played with... or in.— Irene Sans (@IreneSans) May 28, 2019

While we've actually seen above normal rainfall in May, we haven't seen a drop since May 15th.— Rusty McCranie (@RMcCranieWFTV) May 28, 2019
Rain chance remains very low the remainder of the month, and that will begin to elevate the fire threat. pic.twitter.com/zPvK7oaOGb
