MIDWAY, Fl. (WTXL) -- The severe threat is over. A clearing and quick cooling trend is underway, but showers in the midweek can't be ruled out. After that, however, it cools down considerably. 

To start, the entire viewing area is under a WIND ADVISORY until 4:00pm ET. This advisory means that strong winds will take place over the region without the presence of thunderstorms.This is all due to a very strong upper level low and its surface counterpart pulling in air quickly from the west.

In addition, Gale Warnings are a threat:

Small Craft Advisories and High Surf Advisories active, as well. For a full list of active advisories, click here.

Here is a look at the Forecast in Focus depicting strong winds. (The yellows you see are sustained winds at 20 to 30 mph.

This may aggravate unstable trees and/or branches that have been pummeled by strong gusts from yesterday's storms. So additional small wind damage may occur...

Highs in the afternoon will be in the lower to mid 60s. There is a slight chance of a rain shower that will quickly die off into the afternoon and evening. No thunderstorms are expected.

Tuesday and Wednesday features more warmth with highs expected to climb to the upper 60s Tuesday, and mid to upper 70s Wednesday. The temperatures are climbing in response to a warm wind shifting from the south temporarily. This is in response to a cold front.

The next cold front will bring rain on Thursday (NO SEVERE THREAT EXPECTED). 30% coverage of rain is anticipated with highs in the 60s then.

Friday into Sunday, colder air returns with highs in the upper 50s and lows ranging in the 30s.

You can catch my forecast on WTXL Midday at Noon. Chief Meteorologist Casanova Nurse has your forecast at 5:00, 5:30, 6:00, and 11:00 this evening.
