MIDWAY, Fl. (WTXL) -- More warmth and moisture is quickly returning to the local area ahead of what is expected to be an active midweek for rain and storms. Monday and Tuesday will be generally quiet, ahead of some potentially strong to severe storms. The end of the week will be cooler and much quieter.
To start, Monday will be mild in the morning with temperatures in the 50s across the Big Bend and South Georgia. Patchy fog is possible in the morning.
In the afternoon, a south wind will warm the area up with lower to mid 70s along the coast and mid to upper 70s inland.
This is above the seasonal average this time of year (Avg high: 66°. Avg low: 40°). Skies will be partly cloudy.
