MIDWAY, Fl. (WTXL) -- A cold front is getting closer to the region. This will bring more clouds and moisture to our area. Friday will mark the transition to a rainy Saturday. After the front passes, high pressure and hot air quickly returns to dominate next week.
Friday: With an increase in cloud cover due to an approaching cold front, sunshine will obviously not be so dominant. This will help keep temperatures on the "not so hot" side with highs forecast to reach the mid to upper 80s inland and cooler temps are forecast near the coast.
