Sunny day at Cocoa Beach

It will be another hot, muggy day with isolated storms across Central Florida. The high temperature will hit 90 degrees in Orlando. Along coastal regions, the temperatures will stay in the upper 80s.

Moisture is slowly creeping back into Central Florida and it will lead to a higher chance of showers than in days past. About 30 percent of Central Florida will receive measurable rain, mainly in the afternoon hours.

As you venture out, be sure to stay safe in the heat. Make sure to stay hydrated and use sunscreen.
