MIDWAY, Fl. (WTXL) -- The work week will finish with another day of high heat and high humidity, but the weather pattern will change through the weekend to a more dry and comfortable set-up.

Friday: More of the same pattern this past week will continue today, with a muggy morning (temps in the lower to middle 70s). For the afternoon, plenty of heat and humidity will keep it feeling like August weather with highs in the lower to mid 90s and heat indices approaching 100° or higher!

A stalled frontal boundary just to our north will help provide the energy for scattered showers and thunderstorms later this afternoon (40% coverage).

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

Saturday: The front will slowly start to pass the region to the south, ushering in some drier air. The transition will be slow to occur, with a chance of rain still very possible on Saturday. Highest rain coverage will likely be focused along the Suwannee Valley and northeastern parts of Florida (40% coverage) with 20% coverage everywhere else in the Big Bend and South Georgia. Morning lows are anticipated to be in the lower to mid 70s, with highs in the upper 80s to lower 90s.

Sunday through Tuesday: As a tropical low over Florida moves east of the country over the western Atlantic, drier and more mild air is anticipated to build in for a few days. This will keep dew points lower and heat indices more bearable. Expect more cloud cover as Hurricane Harvey likely ejects more clouds in from the west. Aside from a few showers, most (if not all) of us will stay dry. Expect lows in the lower 70s and highs in the mid to upper 80s each day.

Wednesday and Thursday: As Harvey ends it's several-day-long stall over Texas, the storm is expected to move northeast toward Louisiana and Dixie Alley and some rain from the system may reach our neck of the woods. So far, the forecast shows lows in the lower to mid 70s, highs near 90°, and rain coverage isolated/scattered each day 30/40%.
