Heat, humidity and downpours through the weekend

Well, it's that time of year, right? Hot, humid and the obligatory afternoon downpours. 

Status quo weather remains in play for Central Florida through the weekend. There will be a weekend rainfall pattern change as winds shift off the Atlantic. 

High temperatures will be sizzling hot in the low-mid 90s, rain chances fire up mainly after 2-3 p.m. in the afternoons. 

High levels of seasonal humidity will push the heat index or "feels like" temps into the 100°+ mark and this will be the case through the weekend.

Good sunscreen and hydration will be necessities if you have outdoor plans across the area. Taking breaks in the air conditioning or jumping into a cool pool will serve you well in the high heat. 

If your plans take you to the theme parks, the heat will be high, storm risk following close behind.
