High pressure remains firmly in control over Florida and this will provide plenty of sunshine and nothing to hold temperatures back once again. The only factor will be a slight increase in moisture over south Florida which may result in a few isolated showers south of the I-4 corridor.
Otherwise, temperatures this morning will start into the mid-upper 60s. By lunchtime temperatures will already be around 80 degrees before eventually peaking around 85°.
Warm, but pleasant conditions will take us through this evening as temperatures gradually cool into the mid-upper 60s by early Saturday 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: 87° -- Old Record: 85° (1975)
FRIDAY: 85° -- Record: 87° (1949)
Over the weekend temperatures will cool slightly, but remain near 10 degrees warmer than normal.
Enjoy the warmth and sunshine!
