Scorching hot! Heat index soars into triple digits this week

It was another hot, uncomfortably humid day in Central Florida, with above-average temperatures and below-average rain amounts.

Drier air in the middle and upper layers of the atmosphere meant less of a chance for rain but some afternoon storms did develop late afternoon and early evening in the western part of Central Florida.

High temperatures it the low-90s along the coast, the mid-90s inland, with a few spots hitting the upper-90s.

The heat index or "feels-like" temperature approached 105 in most spots.
