MIDWAY, Fl. (WTXL) -- The first half of the work week will likely feature soggy conditions with elevated coverage of rain through Thursday AM. This much-needed rain will be the result of a complex weather pattern featuring multiple disturbances swinging through the southeastern U.S. When it is all done, drier and cooler air will temporarily build in before it heats up for the weekend.
Monday: Get ready for a muggy and mild morning with temperatures in the lower 70s to start. Low level clouds and fog may greet you in the morning commute with elevated dew points. The afternoon will feature scattered thunderstorms with rain coverage at around 50%. Counties in the Tri-state region may see a severe storm as a MARGINAL outlook exists for those counties. The main threat would be strong, damaging gusts and an isolated weak tornado cannot be ruled out.
Don't count on seeing much of any severe weather though, as more instability and energy stays well to our west. Highs are forecast to be in the lower to middle 80s.
Your Beach and Boating forecast, as well as your Tide Times for this Monday, are available below:

Rain coverage is forecast to be around 70% with lows in the lower 70s and highs in the lower 80s. A MARGINAL outlook exists for the entire Big Bend and South Georgia in this period. The main threat would be strong, damaging gusts and an isolated weak tornado cannot be ruled out.
Wednesday: A potent wave of energy will likely help to bring yet another wave of showers and thunderstorms (that could also be severe).
Rain coverage will be around 80%. Morning lows are forecast to be in the lower 70s with highs struggling to reach 80°.
Thursday: After a few showers and storms lingering in the early morning, Thursday should feature a cooler and quieter pattern with lows in the lower 60s and highs in the lower 80s. Expect clearing skies by the later morning and early afternoon.
Friday: A chilly morning is expected for Friday, with lows in the upper 50s. Clear skies will allow a quick warm-up, with highs forecast to reach the mid and upper 80s.
Saturday and Sunday: More warmth is expected to build back in to the local area with morning lows in the mid 60s climbing to near 70°. Highs are forecast to be in the upper 80s.
