    Little Kala and her mom Peggy were trying to keep cool in the pool on their vacation from New Jersey but didn’t get what they were hoping for.

    “And it’s funny because last week in New Jersey it was over 100 like 102 so I kind of came to Florida and it’s pretty much the same,” said Peggy Flynn.

    Temperatures came close to the record high of 94 degrees, a sticky day for some landscapers.

    “You feel it. I mean I got two shirts on and I’m sweating I’m drenched by 8 a.m. I’m drenched,” said Sal, a landscaper.

    The average high this time of year is about 91 degrees and when you’re getting into a car that’s been sitting out for a while it can feel like you’re stepping into an oven. And when you step outside the humidity makes it feel like were in the hundreds. 

    Flynn says when she wants to beat the heat and humidity she thinks the best thing to do is  "stay in the water ... Definitely stay in the water.”

    Temperatures are forecast to be in the 90s through next Wednesday.
