Skies will feature a blend of sun and clouds and rain chances spark up mainly during the afternoon to evening hours, with coverage near 50% in scattered showers and storms. 

Rain fades close to sundown with a partly cloudy sky through the night and lows down into the mid-upper 70s.


Our Central Florida beaches will be a good option on Wednesday. 

Highs on the sand hit near 90 degrees and skies are mixed with sun and clouds through midday. 

Rain chances peg out near 50% and mainly after 2 p.m. Some of the storms will feature lightning – something to consider. 

Rip current risk trend low-moderate. Surf is flat, but a new pulse of distant swell arrives this weekend, bumping surf back into the knee-to-waist-high range. Expect light offshore winds early, and a sea breeze will fire up for the PM hours. 


Hot and humid at the parks on Wednesday. Highs are near 94 degrees with the heat index around 105 degrees. Storms pepper into the area near the attractions after 2 p.m. 

Heavy pockets of rain and lightning will be the norm.


Temperatures will continue rising again by late week and into the weekend. 

We've declared both Saturday and Sunday FOX 35 WEATHER IMPACT DAYS to address some dangerous levels of heat. Actual highs will hit in the 96-97 degree range. Humidity on top of the hot temps will bring the heat index into the 110 degree range.

It'll be good policy to limit outdoor activities during this time as heat illness could pose a big risk to your health.
