MIDWAY, Fl. (WTXL) -- Typical Summer weather continues for the early part of the new week with plenty of warmth, humidity, and a daily chance of rain. By midweek, however, drier air will move in helping to notably lower the rain potential and the humid feeling in the air.

Monday and Tuesday: As a cold front approaches from the west, moist and warm air will continue to move in from the south, helping to support rain activity.

The mornings start with mainly clear to partly cloudy skies. Temperatures will be in the lower to mid 70s. In the afternoon, expect highs to reach near or above 90 degrees with scattered showers and thunderstorms (40% coverage).

Monday Marine and Beach forecast information and your Monday Tide Times can be found below:

Wednesday through Friday: Drier air will help to limit rain potential and lower the humid feeling in the air. Expect morning lows in the lower to mid 70s with a slightly drier feel to the air (especially for Wednesday and Thursday). Highs will still be able to reach the lower 90s, but with less humidity, heat index values will likely be similar to actual air temperatures. Rain coverage will be lower (30% on Wednesday, 20% on Thursday, and 30% on Friday).

Saturday and Sunday: Moisture content in the air starts to increase once again, helping to support a daily chance of afternoon showers and thunderstorms. Expect morning lows in the lower to mid 70s, afternoon highs in the lower 90s, and rain coverage at around 40%.
