MIDWAY, Fla. (WTXL) -- Chilly mornings and mild afternoons will translate to more mild mornings and warmer days as we progress through the new work week. The high pressure system responsible for the cool break will push east and the regional air will begin to warm up because of it.

As the high pushes east, winds will start to move in from the Atlantic ocean. It will take some time, but this easterly wind will raise the forecast lows from around 50 to the lower 60s after mid-week. Overnight lows into Tuesday morning are forecast to be in the lower to mid 50s in North Florida with upper 50s along the Gulf coast. South Georgia has a higher chance of seeing some upper 40s filter in, though lows will also likely hover around 50 degrees or so. Daytime highs into Tuesday are forecast to reach at or near 80 degrees for North Florida with mid to upper 70s for highs in South Georgia. Highs will continue to stay warm, possibly in the mid 80s from Thursday through Sunday, with lows in the lower 60s.

Rain coverage will stay near zero for the next couple of days but the continuous flow of winds from the east will moisten the atmosphere and promote more showers, though there wont be much forcing. Wednesday onward will see rain coverage likely around 20% or less. The rain coverage likely wont jump to higher values until after the weekend. Models hint at a frontal system around then that can help increase the likelihood of showers and storms.
