MIDWAY, Fl. (WTXL) -- A cold front has passed east of the local area, allowing more dry and cool air to move in. This will keep the weekend pleasant, though mornings may be a bit chilly.

Friday: Temperatures will be cooler, with west winds pulling in air from a dry and cool air mass. Expect morning lows to start in the 50s, with afternoon highs in the mid 60s to lower 70s. It is expected to be warmer in North Florida, with less cloud cover expected.

Rain coverage can occur with wrap-around moisture due to nearby low pressure. No thunder is expected, though a stray shower is possible (coverage at 20%).

GALE WARNING in effect for waters of the Big Bend. More details on your Beach and Boating forecast is below:

Tide Times for Friday are below:

Saturday and Sunday: Dry air is expected to stay overhead through the weekend. This will allow morning lows to start in the upper 40s to lower 50s both Saturday and Sunday mornings. The afternoons will feature highs in the lower 70s to mid 80s (warmer highs expected on Sunday).

Monday through Wednesday: Air is expected to be dry though we will start a slow warming trend. Starting the week, lows will be in the lower 50s with highs in the mid 80s. Each day through Wednesday, temperatures will steadily warm up for both lows and highs.

Thursday: A stormy disturbance will move closer to the local area, possibly increasing rain coverage for Thursday. At this point, only stray showers and storms look possible (less than 20% coverage). Highs may approach 90°.
