Areas of fog will develop again overnight across much of the interior, becoming locally dense at times. Patchy fog development will be possible along the Volusia and Brevard coasts.
Overnight lows again mild and in the 60s areawide.
An area of high pressure to our east over the Atlantic will produce a very warm southerly flow across the Florida peninsula today. Skies will be partly to mostly sunny today with temperatures soaring into the mid to upper 80s. A few locations across the central Florida interior may even reach 90 degrees.
A lingering east swell over the Atlantic will contribute to a low-to-moderate rip current risk along area beaches. Rip currents will be most common and strongest through early afternoon.
The record high temperature today at Orlando International airport is 88 degrees (set in 1989). This record is in jeopardy of being tied or broken this afternoon.
Patchy dense fog will reduce visibilities below one half mile at times in Lake, interior Volusia, Seminole, Orange, Osceola and Okeechobee counties early this morning. Rapid changes in visibility can occur over short distances. If dense fog is suddenly encountered, slow down and leave plenty of room between you and vehicles in front of you.
Through 9 am...patchy dense fog will reduce visibilities below one half mile at times mainly over interior sections from Lake county, across Orlando metro down to Lake Okeechobee. Patchy fog will also be possible near the coast but the reduction in visibility should not be as significant. The fog will dissipate by 9 am followed by much above normal temperatures this afternoon. Near record highs in the upper 80s are forecast for Orlando metro this afternoon as well as other interior locations, with mid 80s elsewhere. This is 10 to 14 degrees above normal for this time of year. No rain is expected.
The primary hazard today will be a low to moderate risk of strong rip currents at the beaches caused by a small but long period east swell. Always swim within sight of a lifeguard.
