MIDWAY, Fl. (WTXL) -- ATTENTION: Frost Advisory for eastern counties of North Florida until 8:00am.

After a frigid start to the morning this Friday, another warm-up is anticipated starting this afternoon. High pressure will shift east, helping to allow a trough of low pressure approach the region. This will bring more rain the region on Saturday.

To start, clear skies and calm winds are allowing the temperatures to plummet in the morning, but the afternoon will warm up considerably due to the clear skies allowing for abundant sunshine. Expect highs in the lower 70s today.

Beach and boating forecast is pleasant, with more warmth. More details below:

Tide Times are below:

Saturday morning will feature even more cloud cover as low pressure approaches. Lows will be limited because of these clouds and warmer winds from the south. Expect morning lows to be in the upper 40s to lower 50s. Highs will be in the lower to mid 70s with an increase in clouds and rainfall. Throughout the day, rain coverage will be around 60%, with an isolated thunderstorm possible. No severe weather is expected with this system.

Sunday through Tuesday, warm air returns with high pressure east of us, pulling in more warmth and moisture. Expect lows near 50° and highs are expected to be in the upper 70s to lower 80s. Skies will be partly cloudy.

Wednesday and Thursday, another disturbance is expected to move in from the west, bringing a  chance of thunderstorms (30% so far). Highs are expected to stay in the 70s at that time.

You can catch my 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.
