MIDWAY, Fl. (WTXL) -- A Summer-like hot pattern is setting up for Friday through the weekend. Temperatures will stay well above average, with showers limited through the weekend. A cold front will approach by Monday, likely increasing the rain/storm threat to start the new work week. Throughout the period, above average temperatures are still anticipated.

Friday: High pressure is building back in, pulling very warm and humid air from the south and southeast. Morning lows are starting off in the upper 60s to lower 70s. Foggy conditions will persist through the morning hours until the heat from the sun helps to burn it out. Expect highs to be in the lower 90s inland with upper 80s near the coast. Cities along I-75 and east may get closer to the mid 90s! No rain is expected.

Your Beach and Boating forecast information (including Tide Times) is below. NOTE: Rip current risk is expected to be HIGH for Friday. 

Saturday and Sunday: The quiet pattern will stay with us, though added heat and humidity will keep the air very unstable. High pressure will continue to pull in more moisture and hear from the south.

Expect morning lows at or near 70° with afternoon highs at or above 90°. Rain coverage is forecast to be possible, but minimal (less than 20%).

Monday: A strong cold front will move in from the west, increasing rain coverage on Monday afternoon. At this time, intensity of the line still remains in question, but thunderstorms are expected to be in a scattered nature, with coverage at around 60%. Expect lows near 70° and highs in the lower 80s.

Tuesday and Wednesday: Slightly cooler air will move in, though it will still be rather warm. Expect morning lows in the lower 60s with highs in the mid 80s. Another cold front will likely arrive on our doorstep by Thursday.

More storms look likely on Thursday, but specifics are still unclear. More details coming up through the next several days.
