MIDWAY, Fl. (WTXL) -- Scattered showers and storms possible each day as usual, and the heat continues each afternoon.

Friday: The work week follows the week's weather pattern with hot and humid conditions that just aren't going anywhere. Morning lows will be in the mid to upper 70s with highs anticipated to soar into the lower to middle 90s.

Heat indices will likely approach the triple digits for many spots.

A general northwest wind will likely slow down the sea breeze yet again, keeping rain chances highest along Florida coastal counties. Overall rain coverage will be around 40%.

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

Saturday into Monday: A frontal system to our northwest will get closer, helping to increase moisture and instability in the region. The front is not very strong, however, and because of that, no MAJOR change is in the making, though rain coverage will likely grow. Expect lows in the middle 70s, highs in the lower to middle 90s, and rain coverage at around 40-50%. Heat indices may reach or surpass 100°.

Tuesday into Thursday: More heat and more moisture. Aside from any outside disturbance, no major change is expected as of yet. Forecast lows will be in the lower to middle 70s, highs in the lower 90s, and rain coverage scattered each day (40-50%).
