MIDWAY, Fl. (WTXL) -- It's chilly to start Friday! But that chill will not last long as dry air will quickly heat up in the afternoon for Friday. A Summer-like trend will develop through the Holiday weekend with a chance of rain for the beginning of next week.
Friday: After chilly temperatures in the 50s, expect a significant warm-up. Highs are forecast to reach the upper 80s, possibly at or just above 90°. High pressure is keeping the sky clear and the air dry, and as it moves east, it is pulling in a warmer southwest wind. This is partly the reason such a fast heat-up is expected today.
Your Beach and Boating forecast, along with your Friday Tide Times, can be found below:
Saturday and Sunday: More moisture is expected to work it's way back into the picture with lows in the 60s on Saturday and near 70° on Sunday. Expect highs to range in the lower to mid 90s. A west/southwest wind will help keep us hot. Skies are forecast to be partly cloudy.
Monday (Memorial Day): The end of the Holiday weekend will stay on the hot and more humid side of things, with lows in the lower 70s and highs in the lower 90s (typical Summer values). A nearby disturbance will sowly approach from the northwest, and we may see isolated showers and storms that could develop because of it's influence.
Tuesday through Thursday: More of a similar pattern is expected, with lows in the lower 70s and highs around or above 90°. Rain coverage is expected to be isolated each day (20-30%), as the front arrives by midweek.
