MIDWAY, Fl. (WTXL) -- A short-lived but pleasant break from the earlier deluge of showers and storms will occur for Friday into Saturday. Moisture will quickly return though, allowing for more rain chances into next week. The moisture source will likely have more than enough to revive the heavy rain threat for next week...

Friday: High pressure has built in to our north, allowing dry air to clear the skies. Friday is expected to have more sunshine than clouds (the first time in nearly a week). Dry air has allowed for a cooler than average morning, with lows in the lower to mid 60s. For the afternoon, the dry air will allow the sun to dominate. This can heat up inland spots to near or at 90°.

Your Beach and Boating forecast, along with your Friday Tide Times are below:

Saturday: The day will start off cool and quiet, with dry air keeping lows in the middle 60s. High pressure's influence will steadily fade as more moisture from the Gulf of Mexico returns. This will re-introduce a slight chance of a shower/storm (likely focused along eastern counties in the Big Bend). Expect daytime highs in the lower 90s.

Sunday into Monday: The front that we saw pass through earlier during the week will likely start to lift to the north, with a large amount of atmospheric moisture in place. This will make our rain coverage stay elevated. Lows on Sunday and Monday are expected to be in the lower 70s, with highs in the lower 90s. Rain coverage will likely be scattered (40-50%). Heavy downpours are possible.

Tuesday through Thursday: The previously mentioned front is expected to stall in the Northern Gulf of Mexico, and with upper level energy and heavy amounts of moisture, each day will likely feature numerous showers and storms. Heavy rainfall rates look very possible yet again with this set-up. Each day, expect lows in the lower 70s and highs in the mid to upper 80s.

You can catch the forecast on WTXL Sunrise starting at 5:00, as well as WTXL Midday at Noon. Chief Meteorologist Casanova Nurse has your forecast at 5:00, 5:30, 6:00, and 11:00 this evening.
