TAMPA (FOX 13) - There seems to be no end in sight as Tampa continues to break more warm temperature records this week.
On average, we get five days of 80-degree temperatures in February. So far, we have tripled that, says FOX 13 meteorologist Dave Osterberg.
The record for the month is 18 days of 80 degrees or above in Tampa, which was set back in 1932.
“I do believe we will break this record, maybe, by the end of the weekend,” Osterberg said. “It’s been one unbelievable February.”
On Tuesday, it reached 89 degrees by the afternoon, which made it the hottest winter day on record in Tampa. Monday's official high temperature at Tampa International Airport was 88 degrees, breaking the record high for that day as well.
Osterberg said the high temperatures will remain in the 80s as we head into the weekend.
The National Weather Service reports more record heat is expected again on Wednesday for Tampa Bay, with the area possibly reaching temperatures as high as 90 degrees, according to FOX 13 meteorologist Paul Dellegatto.
