MIDWAY, Fl. (WTXL) -- Above average heat. These three words have been a recurrent theme through the month of September, and for at least the first week of October, the trend will continue.

Monday and Tuesday: High pressure in the southeast will be in control. With it's center just north of us, we'll have an easterly wind in control through the day. This will help to steer in moisture from the Atlantic. The sea-breezes from both the Gulf of Mexico and the Atlantic Ocean east of Florida can help promote scattered showers and thunderstorms. With high pressure in control, there will be plenty of warmth for storms to tap into.

Expect morning temperatures to be in the lower 70s, with afternoon highs approaching 90 degrees. Humidity may make it feel like the mid to upper 90s and some spots may feel like 100 degrees. Rain coverage will be around 40%.

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

Wednesday through Friday: High pressure will still be in control, but it will bring a drier flow of winds to the region from the north. This will keep us warm, but lower the humidity, making it feel slightly more comfortable. Expect lows to be in the upper 60s to lower 70s, highs to be near 90 degrees, with rain coverage very low (10%).

The weekend: The same weather continues for this weekend. Expect morning lows to stay near 70 degrees, highs to be near 90 degrees, with rain coverage at around 10-20%.
