MIDWAY, Fl. (WTXL) -- We dodged widespread severe weather on Thursday, though a few SEVERE warnings and even a TORNADO warning popped up yesterday. Friday has a high chance for wet weather and a few strong storms, though the activity will likely be weaker.

Friday: The morning is starting off mild and humid, with temperatures in the mid to upper 60s. Afternoon highs will likely be limited, staying in the lower to mid 70s. Rain coverage is forecast to be high, around 80%. A MARGINAL risk for severe storms exists across the eastern two-thirds of the region. Gusty winds will be the primary severe threat.

Friday Marine forecast information is below:

Saturday: After the front that causes the rain passes, it will be a cool and dry set-up. Morning lows will be chilly with numbers in the mid to upper 40s. Highs in the afternoon are forecast to be in the upper 60s to 70 degrees. Skies will be mainly clear.

Sunday: Originally, Sunday was also looking quiet and dry, but the forecast weather pattern has continued to show changes and odds are we see a quick warm-up for Sunday with the chance for scattered showers and storms. Expect lows to be near 50 degrees with highs in the lower to mid 70s.

Monday: Warmer and possibly wetter conditions are expected for the start of next week with lows in the 60s and highs in the mid to upper 70s. Scattered showers and storms appear possible.

Tuesday and Wednesday: This is a tricky but important part of the forecast, as another round of strong storms is looking possible. Election Day impacts are looking increasingly possible, with slightly less active weather on the Wednesday after. Expect lows to be in the upper 60s on Tuesday with highs near 80 degrees. For Wednesday, morning lows are forecast to be in the mid 60s with highs in the mid 70s.
