MIDWAY, Fl. (WTXL) -- Fall is here! With that being said, it doesn't feel like Fall and the work week will continue with more of a Summer-like feel. With plenty of warmth and moisture in place, showers and storms will be possible for the first half of the work week. The approach of a cold front to our north will help enhance rain potential by midweek, with a drop in the rain potential by late week into the weekend.
Monday: The morning again starts with a mild and humid trend. Temperatures are in the lower to mid 70s this morning, under fair skies. Showers and storms are possible in the morning, mainly along the Franklin and western Wakulla county coasts. Other than that, most of us will avoid early morning rain.
Later in the afternoon, expect highs to reach the lower 90s under partly cloudy skies. The sea breeze can help enhance forcing for showers and storms today. Overall coverage is forecast to be around 40%, with the highest likelihood of rain for counties east of US Hwy 319.
Monday Marine/Beach forecast information and your Monday Tide Times are below:
Tuesday: A similar forecast to Monday is expected, though the favorability of rain may push further west for local counties. Otherwise, expect lows in the lower to mid 70s and highs in the lower 90s. Rain coverage is forecast to be around 40%.
Wednesday and Thursday: The aforementioned cold front will likely stall north of us. This will prevent any cooling and drying of the local air mass. Instead, the closeness of the front and the available warmth and moisture will only help to increase rain potential to around 50% coverage (or higher). Expect lows in the lower to mid 70s and highs in the lower 90s.
Friday into the weekend: There is some uncertainty on the forecast positioning of a stalled front north of the region. Because of this, the rain potential is only forecast to be isolated (20-30%), but it may increase in the coming days. In the meantime, the general forecast for temperatures mimics that of earlier this week: Lows in the lower 70s and highs in the lower 90s.
