MIDWAY, Fl. (WTXL) -- High pressure has regained control after a subtle passage of a weak cold front yesterday. No major changes to the forecast are in play, but the drier set of air behind the front has allowed lows to fall below 60 degrees. The dry air will allow for plentiful sunshine again, and that in turn, will allow daytime highs to stay in the mid to upper 80s.

For Saturday and Sunday, a weak impulse of upper level energy is expected to swing through and that energy can enhance the chance of isolated showers and storms. Widespread showers are not expected and rainfall coverage will be around 20% with daytime highs still expected to be in the mid 80s with lows near 60 degrees.

Next week, more heat is expected to gather with highs closing in to 90 degrees. By midweek next week, a stronger cold front may significantly increase rain coverage.
