There will be little relief from the Tampa Bay area's recent run of searing heat and stifling humidity.

The high pressure that's been firmly in control over the last week will remain intact, producing sticky conditions and highs in the mid-90s that once again will approach record levels, according to the National Weather Service.

Residents are waking up to temperatures mainly in the mid 70s, and Tampa's forecast high of 94 on Wednesday will be just two degrees shy of the record of 96 set in 2006. Bright sunshine, a trace chance of a stray shower, and gentle breezes from the southwest will help fuel that oppressive feel.

Overnight lows will only dip into the mid 70s.

Expect these blazing conditions heading into the weekend, when a stronger onshore flow from the west could produce a slightly higher chance for a pop-up shower starting on Friday.
