The heat is expected to continue through this weekend.
Highs will be in the mid-90s throughout the area, says WFLA-TV meteorologist Leigh Spann. The chance for rain is around 30 to 40 percent.
There is a tropical wave just east of the Puerto Rico that has a 60 to 80 percent chance of developing into a tropical depression, the National Hurricane Center said. A depression is likely to form by early next week, but it is too soon to determine if it will affect Florida.
