The broken record playing the tune of record heat will continue for yet another day. High pressure remains firmly in control over Florida and this will provide plenty of sunshine and nothing to hold temperatures back.
Temperatures this morning will start into the mid-upper 60s. By lunchtime temperatures will already be around 80 degrees before eventually peaking around 86°.
Warm, but pleasant conditions will take us through this evening as temperatures gradually cool into the mid-upper 60s by early Friday morning.
Friday will be warm again, but at least not record warmth. The high temperature Friday will be 84° with a record of 87°. Friday will likely be the only day this week where we won't break a record high.
MONDAY: 88° -- Old Record: 86° (1997)
TUESDAY: 89° -- Old Record: 87° (1997) *Record for hottest day in winter (Dec-Feb)
WEDNESDAY: 88° -- Old Record: 87° (1961)
THURSDAY: 86° -- Record: 85° (1975)
FRIDAY: 84° -- Record: 87° (1949)
By the time we get into the weekend temperatures will cool slightly, but remain near 10 degrees warmer than normal.
Enjoy the warmth and sunshine!
