MIDWAY, Fl. (WTXL) -- We're looking at another day of Summer weather to end the work week. The weekend will feature similar weather before a slight period of slightly drier weather for early next week.

Friday: The morning starts off mild with temperatures in the lower to mid 70s under a partly cloudy sky. Areas of rain will be few and far between for the morning, becoming more prominent in the afternoon. Later in the afternoon, expect highs to reach the upper 80s to lower 90s. Rain coverage is forecast to be around 40%.

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

This weekend: Saturday and Sunday look very similar with the overall weather pattern. Expect moist air to continue to stick around with typical Summer heat. Forecast temperatures in the morning are in the lower to mid 70s, forecast highs are in the lower 90s, and rain coverage is anticipated to be around 40-50% (higher on Saturday).

Monday and Tuesday: Drier air looks to move in to help drop rain coverage a bit, but still keep it around. Expect morning temperatures in the mid 70s, afternoon temperatures in the lower to middle 90s, and rain coverage at 30%.

Wednesday and Thursday: A cold front is forecast to approach the area by midweek next week, helping to increase cloud cover and rain coverage in this period. Expect lows in the lower to mid 70s, highs in the upper 80s to near 90 degrees, with rain coverage at least at 50-60% (probably higher).
