MIDWAY, Fl. (WTXL) -- A more mild pattern is expected this week, when compared to late last week. A slow moving and weak cold front will push into the southeast, promoting isolated showers. By next week, signs are pointing toward colder temperatures returning, but that is beyond seven days from now.
Today through Wednesday: A slow-moving cold front will be pushing through the Mississippi and Dixie Alley regions, steadily drawing closer to us. It looks to pass south of us by Wednesday morning, bringing slightly cooler temperatures. Each morning through Wednesday, expect lows in the upper 60s to near 70 degrees with afternoon highs forecast to be in the upper 80s. Isolated showers are possible each day (20-30%) with a stray thunderstorm possible but not very likely.
Monday Marine forecast information is below:
Thursday and Friday: The cold front will be very close by, stalling just south of the Big Bend in the northern Gulf of Mexico and it will likely drift north of us by the weekend. This will keep any significant change in the weather from occurring. Mornings will have temperatures in the mid 60s with afternoons having highs in the lower to mid 80s. Isolated showers may still be possible along the coast (10-20% overall coverage).
This weekend: A stronger cold front will approach from the west and this will likely increase the rain coverage more substantially with 40% on Saturday as it passes. Expect lows on both days to be near 70 degrees with highs on Saturday in the mid 80s. On Sunday, highs look to be in the upper 70s to lower 80s. Cooler mornings are likely next Monday with 50s possibly returning by then.
