MIDWAY, Fl. (WTXL) -- High pressure to our north is pushing east, driving in winds from the east and southeast, helping to warm us up for Friday and the incoming weekend. By the weekend, a cold front may graze our area, increasing our rain coverage.

Friday: It will be cool for the morning, with temperatures in the mid-50s. With the southeast transition of winds today, that will help warm up temperatures from yesterday. In addition, cloud cover will not be as dominant. Because of this, expect highs to be near 80°. No rain is expected for Friday.

Beach and Boating conditions will be bumpy with Small Craft Advisory conditions expected through 5:00pm today. More details below:

Tide Times for this Friday are below:

Saturday: Morning lows for Saturday are expected to be mild, with numbers in the upper 50s. Afternoon temperatures are forecast to be in the lower 80s with partly cloudy skies progressing into mostly cloudy skies. A cold front out west will approach, and western counties in our area may see a few showers and storms late Saturday (20%).

Sunday: Sunday will be quite similar, with more clouds developing through the day. Lows are forecast to be in the lower 60s with highs in the lower 80s. As the front gets closer, more showers/storms are possible, but the coverage only increases a small amount (30%). This is due to the front pushing north of our local area. The majority of the energy associated with the front will likely avoid us.

Monday and Tuesday: Morning lows to start next week will be in the upper 50s to lower 60s. Daytime highs will likely jump to the lower to mid 80s. A new disturbance may graze our local area as well, helping to keep low-end rain coverage in play for both days (20% or less).

Wednesday and Thursday: Earlier models hinted at more potent fronts forming out in the Pacific Southwest. While they still show this, the rain will likely avoid our area Wednesday and Thursday. Expect lows near 60° and highs in the mid 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.
