MIDWAY, Fl. (WTXL) -- Hot and humid conditions aren't going anywhere anytime soon, so the forecast stays similar through the midweek and late week period.

Wednesday: It will be a mild and muggy start with lows in the lower to mid 70s. Forecast highs are anticipated to be in the lower 90s with heat index values approaching the lower 100s.

High pressure in the Gulf of Mexico will keep our winds out of the west for most of the day. For some areas, winds may be out of the northwest. This will keep the sea breeze pinned to more North Florida counties than South Georgia counties. With this in mind, rain coverage is expected to be slightly lower today than in previous days (40% coverage).

Beach and Boating forecast information and your Wednesday Tide Times are below:

Thursday through Sunday: High pressure remains in control over the Gulf of Mexico. That being said, with moisture content still on the higher side, healthy rain chances will be present each day. Expect morning temps in the lower to mid 70s, highs in the lower 90s, heat indices approaching the lower 100s, and rain coverage at around 40-50% each day.

Monday and Tuesday: Some drier air seems likely to move in by next week. This will lower our rain coverage but keep us hot! In addition, we'll still have enough humidity to make it feel even hotter! Expect lows in the 70s, highs in the lower to mid 90s, heat indices again in the lower 100s, and rain coverage at around 30-40%.

You can catch the forecast on WTXL Sunrise starting at 5:00, as well as WTXL Midday at Noon. Meteorologist Jennifer Meyers has your forecast at 5:00, 5:30, 6:00, and 11:00 this evening.
