MIDWAY, Fla. (WTXL) -- From the Storm Team Weather Center ...

Leftover moisture and clouds from this morning's rain activity have slowed the warming trend.  As long as the clouds linger, temperatures this evening and overnight will also be slow to cool.  Lows will dip into the mid 50s, with mostly cloudy conditions running into Saturday.  Another quick-moving system will emerge from the western Gulf and the southern Plains, sweeping eastward and spreading additional showers across the region through the course of the day.  Coastal and offshore areas may encounter isolated thunderstorms.  Highs will attempt to break into the low 70s, supported by milder southerly winds.  The warm-up is temporary; as Saturday's disturbance departs, a sharply colder north wind will set up on Sunday, triggering a clearing trend while tapping into considerably chilly air surging in from the polar regions.  This will keep temps near or below average for most of next week with minimal to no rain concerns.
