Orlando weather: Near-record heat expected this weekend could lead to higher fire danger

Orlando is in store for a mostly sunny weekend, with temperatures nearing record highs on Saturday. Humidity levels are expected to increase slightly, though conditions remain comfortable overall. The current record high of 96 degrees, set back in 1908, could be approached on Saturday.

By Monday, the weather will see the return of some clouds and breezy conditions, potentially bringing a few showers. However, rainfall probabilities are expected to be minimal.

Following a frontal passage, temperatures will moderate back into the low to mid-80s by mid-next week.

For those planning beach outings, conditions will be ideal with a light chop and low risk of rip currents throughout the weekend.

NEXT WEEK: Our next chance for rain comes Monday with a weak cold front set to kick off a few scattered showers and/or thunderstorms. It'll knock our temps down to near-normal (but still just above) temps through the middle of next week. The front is so weak, it'll likely die over Central Florida.
