MIDWAY, Fl. (WTXL) -- The hottest temperatures this week (and maybe this year) will likely occur today and/or tomorrow as high pressure allows plentiful sunshine to reach the surface and warm us up. Rain coverage returns for a prolonged period starting early next week.
Friday: Morning lows are again mild for Friday, with temperatures in the 60s (a few spots close to 70°). Skies look to be clear in the morning and mainly sunny in the afternoon. Expect daytime highs to climb to the lower to mid 90s with potential for some isolated areas to be hotter.
Friday Marine/Beach forecast information and your Friday Tide Times are below:
Saturday: Nearly a carbon copy of Friday's forecast, Saturday will start mainly clear with lows in the 60s. Expect a bit more in the way of clouds, but temperatures still look to rise to the lower to mid 90s in the afternoon.
Sunday: Another very warm day is expected, though more clouds and more of a breeze may prevent the mid 90s from being reached. Mother's Day looks to have lows in the 60s with expected highs in the lower 90s. Rain is possible as a low pressure system is forecast to move over Florida's peninsula, and it may bring a few showers to us. Overall, rain coverage still looks to be quite low at only 10% for now.
Next week: The upper level, non-tropical low pressure system looks to bring widespread cloud cover and rain coverage to our area. Showers and thunderstorms will be possible each day through Thursday, with the peak of rain activity likely coming on Tuesday and Wednesday. Each day, morning lows are forecast to be in the 60s with highs ranging in the lower to upper 80s each afternoon.
