MIDWAY, Fl. (WTXL) -- The Arctic cold will last for a few more days, getting slightly warmer through the weekend. 60s for highs look to return by early next week.

Friday: An Arctic dome of high pressure is in control of the eastern half of the U.S. This dome is keeping skies mainly clear and helping to steer very cold air right into our area. With that in mind, temperatures this morning have started off well in the 20s with a light to calm wind. The afternoon is forecast to still be chilly, with highs in the mid to upper 40s with mainly sunny skies.

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

Saturday: Another chilly morning with lower to mid 20s is forecast with highs expected to get closer to 50°. Expect skies to be mainly sunny.

Sunday: Air will continue to get slightly warmer with winds shifting to the east and southeast. Morning lows of upper 20s to lower 30s are forecast with highs expected to be in the mid to upper 50s. Mainly sunny to partly cloudy skies are expected.

Monday: Mid to upper 40s are forecast for morning lows, as warmer winds take hold ahead of an approaching cold front out west. The afternoon is forecast to be warm with highs back in the 60s with a mix of sun and clouds. Afternoon rain coverage is expected, with forecast coverage at around 60%. Thunderstorms are possible on Monday.

Tuesday: The front may bring some rain in the morning as it passes. Rain coverage is forecast to be 40% before eventual clearing. Expect lows in the lower 50s with highs in the lower 60s.
