FOX meteorologist Jayme King reported a sweltering “feels like” temp for Friday morning, with most of Central Florida under a heat index of 100 to 104 degrees.

We can expect showers to start rolling in around 2 p.m. Friday afternoon, with the same pattern of 90-degree weather, triple-digit "feels like" temps, and showers forecasted through the weekend.

FOX 35 reports that the increased amount of moisture contributes to raising the chances of rainstorms for the weekend, with a 60% chance of precipitation currently set for Saturday and Sunday.

Time to cozy up inside and make some contingency plans for that weekend beach day!
