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

​The transition into a drier, hotter pattern is underway, but not before a few scattered thunderstorms form with the current heating and the moist southerly flow, particularly in the Withlacoochee and Suwannee river valleys.  Any late-day rain action will end by midnight.  Areas of clear sky will help lows fall into the low 70s.  Upper high pressure is set to increase its grip over the Southeast, suppressing the afternoon thunderstorm development and pushing temperatures well above average.  Coverage of rain Saturday will be limited to western areas, then all of the region will have less than 20% coverage by Sunday.  Highs will soar into the mid 90s, near 90° at the coast, and possible isolated upper 90s in interior south Georgia.  The abnormal heat will stretch into early next week, then moisture sources and a weakening of the high will permit scattered showers and storms to form more easily by midweek.
