After the brief cooldown this weekend, our temperatures will quickly climb in the week ahead with high pressure building in over Florida.  A south flow will bring record heat by midweek with potential for 90 degrees. In fact, Cassette said Orlando has never hit 91 degrees in record history in February.

According to Extreme Weather Watch, the hottest February temperature in Orlando history was 90 degrees which occurred on February 15, 1935.
