MIDWAY, Fl. (WTXL) -- A feed of tropical moisture in the Gulf of Mexico and western Caribbean Sea is expected to continue to bring elevated rain coverage to the Big Bend and South Georgia ALL WEEK. Some days look rainier than others, but just like last week, every day has a chance of precipitation.

Monday: The morning has started off quite active for some with areas of light to moderate rainfall and other areas with heavy rain and thunder. Regardless of whether you encounter rain or not this morning, expect mostly cloudy skies with morning temperatures near 70 degrees. Some sun is possible today, but clouds look to persist all day with high-end rain coverage (60-70%). For the afternoon, expect temperatures to range in the upper 70s to lower 80s. Keep rain gear handy.

Some flooding issues may arise if storms are heavy and slow-moving.

Monday Marine/Beach forecast information and your Monday Tide Times are below:

Tuesday through Friday: While some days may have more rain than others, each day is pretty similar overall. Expect morning lows to be near 70 degrees with highs in the mid to upper 80s through Friday. Mostly cloudy skies are expected, but the sun can make it's presence known each day. This can help warm us up closer to 90 degrees likely closer to the end of the work week. Rain coverage will be around 60% on Tuesday, with 40-50% coverage afterward through Friday.

This weekend: More moisture is expected to feed into the local area, regardless of any tropical development that may occur in the Gulf of Mexico. Because of this elevated moisture content, rain coverage looks to continue to stay prominent (60% or more all weekend) with lows in the lower 70s and highs in the lower to mid 80s.
