"You want to make sure you are wearing light, loose fit clothing. Drinking plenty of water," Fox 35 meteorologist Kristin Giannas said. "If you're working outside, take frequent breaks."

The heat index was 100° at Cranes Roost Park two years ago, (with an afternoon high of 93°). Twenty-one people were treated for heat-related illness, 6 of which were taken to the hospital.

The July 4th holiday will also leave Central Florida with above normal heat.
