MIDWAY, Fl. (WTXL) -- The weather pattern will get progressively more active with growing rain coverage, but it starts quiet and cool. After the coldest morning in the Big Bend and South Georgia in months, the temperatures will slowly warm up, though staying below or near average.
Monday: We're waking up to the 40s in the morning for the first time in a long time. Due to high pressure setting up in the southeast, it is keeping the winds calm. This has allowed the region to cool off considerably. In the afternoon, plenty of sunshine should easily allow 70s for highs with limited clouds.
Monday Marine forecast information is below:
Tuesday and Wednesday: Unsettled weather will slowly return to the region with rain coverage slowly increasing. High pressure will still be over the southeast, with a stalled frontal boundary just south of the Big Bend and South Georgia. This boundary may allow for a few showers and storms. Expect lows in the mid to upper 50s with temperatures near 60 degrees closer to the coast. Expect highs to be in the mid to upper 70s. Rain coverage will be low, around 20%.
Thursday and Friday: The rain chances in the forecast look to increase quite noticeably as a new disturbance in the Gulf of Mexico develops into a frontal system and pushes through the Tri-state Region. Morning lows will likely be near 60 degrees with afternoon highs in the lower to mid 70s. Rain coverage is forecast to be around 50-60% for both Thursday and Friday. As the front pushes east and away from us, we will cool down once again.
Saturday and Sunday: Expect a cooler Saturday and Sunday with morning lows close to 50 degrees and highs close to 70 degrees. Sunday night may be a bit cooler with a reinforcing front. The second front may make it colder than forecast for Sunday morning, it is pushes through quickly. Regardless, next week will likely start off chilly again.
