MIDWAY, Fl. (WTXL) -- A surge of atmospheric moisture will keep the first half of the week somewhat unsettled with an elevated chance of showers and storms each day. The end of the work week will likely heat up in the absence of some moisture, before another surge of moisture moves in for the weekend.
Monday through Wednesday: A decaying frontal boundary over the Tri-State region will help trigger numerous showers and storms across the southeastern U.S. where there is plenty of moisture to work with. Even as the front dies out, the moisture content will still be high enough for a higher than normal coverage of afternoon storms each day. Expect morning lows in the lower to mid 70s with highs in the lower 90s.
Rain coverage will be around 50-60% (highest on Monday due to the front). Skies will be partly sunny to mostly cloudy.
Beach and Boating forecast information and Tide Times are below:
Thursday and Friday: High pressure will take temporary control, limiting the chance of rain while keeping our area quite hot. Expect morning lows to be in the lower to mid 70s, highs to be in the mid to possibly upper 90s, and rain coverage to be around 30%. While rain coverage is low, under this type of surface heating, storms that do form can be intense/severe. Skies will be mainly a mix of sun and clouds.
Saturday and Sunday: A new front is expected to push into our area for the weekend. This will help increase rain chances as moisture builds back into the area. Expect lows in the lower to mid 70s, highs in the lower 90s, and rain coverage around 40-50%. Skies will be partly sunny to mostly cloudy.
