MIDWAY, Fl. (WTXL) -- A cold front will make the start of the work week potentially a messy one for many of us. After the storms pass, a temporary break of cooler and drier air will move in through midweek. Soon after that, another front will increase the local storm threat. The weekend will become cooler and drier after that second front with below average temperatures possible through Sunday morning.

Monday: A strong upper level low pressure system continues to pull in the threat for storms across the eastern half of the country. North Florida and South Georgia will see storms increasing through the early afternoon today, with a MARGINAL RISK for severe storms. The primary threat will be damaging straight-line winds, though a significant weather event is not expected. After morning lows start off in the 70s with mostly cloudy skies, expect highs to be in the upper 70s to lower 80s with rain coverage at around 60%. The storm threat will diminish toward sunset and beyond.

Beach and Boating forecast information (along with Tide Times) for this Monday are below:

Tide Times:

Tuesday and Wednesday: Cooler and drier air will move in (specifically cooler in the mornings with lows in the upper 50s). Forecast highs will be in the mid 80s, so the afternoons will feature plentiful warmth.

Thursday: Another cold front will travel through our local region with storm threats expected to sharply increase. So far, rain coverage will be high (60% +) with lows in the mid 60s and highs in the lower 80s. Severe threats are still a bit unclear at this time. Stay tuned for the latest updates on that.

Friday and Saturday: Another dose of cooler and drier air is expected. Morning lows are forecast to drop to the mid and upper 50s with highs in the upper 70s.

Sunday: Weather is still expected to be quiet, but temperatures are forecast to start climbing back to the lower and mid 80s for highs.
