MIDWAY, Fl. (WTXL) -- The pattern of warm weather with plentiful sunshine will continue. And not only will it be warm, it will be near RECORD levels for the heat expected with highs 10 to 15 degrees or more above average!
Take a look at what we saw today:
Tonight, general cooling is anticipated with temperatures dropping to the 50s before midnight:
Starting with Saturday morning, a cool start is expected with areas starting off the weekend with lows in the upper 40s to lower 50s. Saturday afternoon, temperatures are expected to rise to the upper 70s to 80° or higher. This is due to high pressure over head, helping to prevent cloud cover and rainfall from moving into the area.
This high pressure system is so strong, that the pattern is not expected to change much from Saturday through Sunday. The only difference is that stray showers will become more possible after Saturday with rain coverage at less than 20% through Tuesday. Highs through this period will be in the upper 70s to 80°, with morning temperatures in the lower 50s.
By Wednesday and beyond, the rain chances are expected to jump higher as the ridge of high pressure begins to weaken, allowing a cold front from the west to approach the region. The rain coverage will grow from isolated to more widespread through next Friday, with highs expected to be in the mid 70s.
