MIDWAY, Fla. (WTXL) — A broad zone of high pressure is emerging into our area today, producing a steady northerly breeze and bringing in a chilly air source. Despite full sunshine, today's highs will only reach the low and mid 60s, some of the coolest highs since the springtime.

With decreasing wind overnight, we expect temperatures to fall quickly after sunset, reaching lows well into the 40s Tuesday morning. A few inland spots may even drop into the upper 30s. We'll stick with sunshine through midweek, but east winds beyond Wednesday will usher in scattered clouds and moisture.

Rain chances are low by Friday, and temperatures will rebound with lows in the 60s by the weekend and highs near 80°.

Storm Eta has strengthened into a hurricane Monday morning in the Caribbean Sea and is forecast to move closer to Nicaragua and Honduras. There are no local threats near the Gulf or the Southeastern U.S. at this time, but long-range forecast trends are being monitored closely.
