MIDWAY, Fl. (WTXL) -- With a slow-moving front crossing the Big Bend and South Georgia today into tomorrow, we will be sandwiched between high pressure to our north and low pressure to our south. For the weekend and Monday, rain coverage will be higher due to an approaching low pressure disturbance in the Florida Straits. Beyond that, drier air looks to make a return with seasonable temperatures anticipated.
Friday night: After a very hot afternoon, Friday evening and night will be rather mild, with overnight lows into Saturday morning forecast to be in the lower 70s. Skies are expected to be partly cloudy with a stray shower possible.
Saturday and Sunday: The weekend will feature our region being just north of a slow moving front. Wrap-around moisture from a low pressure area to our south will move into the Big Bend and South Georgia, promoting higher rain coverage (40%) each day. Expect lows near 70° with highs on Saturday in the upper 80s with partly sunny skies and highs on Sunday in the lower 80s with more clouds anticipated.
