MIDWAY, Fla. (WTXL) — The latest cold front is on the way, passing through the area later tonight through early Friday. There isn't much moisture around, so no rain is expected. The front will stretch the dry and mild spell for a couple more days. Tonight's lows will drop into the mid 50s, and Friday's highs will be comfortably mild in the mid and upper 70s. The front will stall just south of the area, so our temperatures will remain below average for the weekend. However, more clouds will stream overhead, reducing sunshine a bit. A slight chance for rain comes Sunday, especially in the Suwannee Valley, where tropical moisture may collide with the front.

Disturbances in the Caribbean Sea are forecast to move into the western Caribbean toward the end of the week. Forecast trends suggest a tropical depression can form from that region by this weekend or early next week, moving mainly west-northwest. Some associated moisture can impact the southern Gulf next week.
