MIDWAY, Fl. (WTXL) -- More moisture will move into the Big Bend and South Georgia for today and the beginning of the weekend. This will lead to a short-term increase of rain coverage before a drying trend for the start of next week.
Friday: A weak impulse of upper level energy will continue to travel across the Gulf of Mexico and it will help keep winds coming in from the Gulf of Mexico.
