MIDWAY, Fl. (WTXL) -- The stagnant pattern of high pressure being in control stays with us through the early weekend. With that in play, more warmth and limited rain coverage continues. That changes with a Sunday cold front.

Friday and Saturday: The end of the weekend and the start of the work week will feature morning lows in the lower 60s. As winds from the southeast/south pick up, clouds may develop along the sea breeze with a stray shower possible both days (< 20% coverage). Highs are forecast to climb to the mid and upper 80s.

Friday's Beach and Boating information (including Tide Times) are below:

Saturday afternoon's forecast surface map:

Sunday: A cold front will pass our area on Sunday, increasing cloud cover and rain coverage (50%). Now the front may bring a few strong storms with it. There is a MARGINAL risk for severe storms for areas in Southwest Georgia. The main threat would be strong gusty winds, with a minimal tornado threat. Morning lows are forecast to be in the mid 60s with highs near 80°.

Monday: Cooler and drier air behind the cold front will keep temperatures lower than last week to start. Morning lows on Monday are forecast to drop to the 50s with afternoon highs in the upper 70s.

Tuesday through Thursday: The afternoons will quickly warm up, though mornings may still be chilly with lower 50s on Tuesday, and mid to upper 50s Wednesday and Thursday. Forecast highs will be in the mid to upper 80s through this period. Skies are expected to be partly cloudy.
