Record-setting hot streak continues across Tampa Bay, but not for long

Forecasters are predicting more record-breaking heat Friday and Saturday, before things start to cool a bit by Sunday.

According to the National Weather Service, temperatures on Thursday hit 93 degrees in Tampa, breaking the previous record, set in 1989, by three degrees. Today is expected to be similar. Highs will peak around 91 degrees, setting a new record high over last year's record-setting 89 degrees. Normal temperature for this time of year is in the mid 80s.

Temperatures will stay high Saturday, making it up to the high 80s or low 90s, but will start to fall beginning Sunday as a cold front moves into the area, forecasters said. Sunday shouldn't get above 83. Temperatures next week should be cooler and less humid.

Rain chances through the weekend are about 10 percent.
