MIDWAY, Fl. (WTXL) -- A drier trend for the local area will take place for the next couple of days before a return of warmth and moisture for midweek and beyond. 

Monday: As a tropical wave organizes east of us, it will pull in drier winds to the local region. With a drier wind out of the north-northeast, temperatures and dew points will not be as high as previous days. Expect lows to be in the lower to mid 70s, with highs only climbing to the mid and upper 80s.

Skies will likely be mostly cloudy with a stray shower possible.

Beach and Boating forecast information and your Monday Tide Times are below:

Tuesday: Morning lows will continue to be quite mild with temperatures in the lower 70s. Drier winds from the north will keep it feeling comfortable. Expect highs to be in the upper 80s to lower 90s. A stationary front to our south will likely approach our North Florida counties, helping to increase rain coverage in the afternoon/evening time-frame. Rain coverage for South Georgia will be less than 20% with North Florida rain coverage at 30%.

Wednesday through Friday: More moisture is expected to return to the region as we stay in an unsettled, hot, and humid air mass. Harvey will likely continue to stall over southeastern Texas, but winds around the system will steer out of the south. This south wind can help the sea breeze produce showers and storms locally for us. Expect lows in the mid 70s, highs in the lower 90s, and rain coverage at around 40%.

Saturday and Sunday: Even more moisture is expected to climb into the region. Forecast lows are in the mid 70s, highs in the lower 90s, and rain coverage at around 50%.
