MIDWAY, Fl. (WTXL) -- A warm and unsettled pattern begins today and will last through most of the work week as a potent storm system over the Great Plains moves closer to our local area.
To start, Monday will feature cool temperatures in the morning, with lows in the 40s inland (50s and lower 60s near the coast). Later on Monday afternoon, warmer south winds will bring our temperatures close to 80° with a brief impulse of energy helping to spark our shower coverage to around 20%. A thunderstorm is possible, though for today, that chance will be low.
Here is a look at the Beach and Boating forecast. Note: Small crafts should exercise caution this morning as winds will be stronger early on, before dying down to 10-15 knots.
Tide Times for this Monday are below:
Tuesday will feature even warmer conditions to start, with morning lows in the upper 50s to near 60°. Increased moisture may help to allow for fog to develop, as well. Afternoon temperatures will be even warmer, with expected numbers above 80°. Rain coverage will be minimal as a cold front out west slowly approaches (less than 20%).
Wednesday, more moisture may allow for increased showers and storms. The morning will start off warm, with lows in the lower 60s and afternoon highs will range in the upper 70s to lower 80s. Rain coverage increases as the front gets closer and closer (30%).
Wednesday night into Thursday morning, a few storms may be strong to severe, with gusty winds as the main threat. Scattered thunderstorms early on Thursday will give way to clear skies after the cold front passes our local area. Cooler air will roll in with this drier air mass.
Thursday afternoon highs will be limited, with expected temperatures near 70°. Cooler lows will be with us from Friday morning through Sunday morning, with temps in the 40s. Highs will stay in the 70s through that period.
