MIDWAY, Fl. (WTXL) -- High pressure's influence continues to weaken and we will see more moisture and cloud cover in our local areas as a result. In addition, a short series of disturbances will keep rain coverage much higher through the work week next week.

Friday: Winds out of the east/southeast will keep conditions mild in the morning, with lows around 70°. Highs are forecast to reach near or just above 90° inland, with 80s along the coast. Skies will likely feature a mix of sun & clouds, with more clouds helping to provide opportunity for shade and a stray shower or storm (coverage at less than 20%).

Your Beach and Boating forecast is below, as well as your Friday Tide Times:

Saturday: Morning lows are forecast to be around 70°, with partly cloudy skies. The sea breeze will be enhanced by southerly winds. This will bring more moisture and more clouds inland. Forecast highs will be limited to mid and upper 80s inland. Lower 90s are still possible, though they may not last for very long. Rain coverage is around 30% across the Big Bend and South Georgia.

Sunday and Monday: A cold front will move across the local area, helping to sharply increase rain coverage. Morning lows are expected to be in the lower 70s with mostly cloudy skies. Highs will be limited with an increase of storms and clouds. Expect afternoon temperatures to peak in the mid to upper 80s inland and along the coast, a tad bit cooler. Rain coverage is forecast to be higher, at 50% on Sunday and 60% on Monday. Heavy downpours and frequent lightning are possible with the storms that occur.

Tuesday and Wednesday: A second disturbance will keep rain coverage on the generous side. Expect lows near 70° with highs in the mid 80s. At this point in time, scattered showers and storms are possible (40-50% coverage). More details on these storms will be more clear by early next week.

Thursday: The second disturbance will pass on by before Thursday, bringing cooler and drier air to the local area. Expect lows in the mid 60s and highs in the mid 80s.
