MIDWAY, Fl. (WTXL) -- Dry and stable air stay with us today through the weekend with high pressure being the dominant force in determining our local weather pattern.
Friday: Morning lows are chilly, with numbers in the 40s to lower 50s. Highs are forecast to be around 70°. Those may occur late this afternoon, with a slow warming trend early on.
Winds will still be a bit breezy due to the influence of low pressure to our north, and building high pressure to our northwest. The result is a combination of two factors: Dry air and stronger winds. This will make it potentially dangerous to light fires since the air is so dry. The spread of fire will be easier to occur with such a condition. Because of this, a RED FLAG WARNING will go in effect at 1:00pm ET. It stays in effect until 7:00pm ET. Outdoor burning isn't recommended.
