MIDWAY, Fla. (WTXL) -- A new heat wave has set up for the remainder of the weekend and into the beginning of the work week. High pressure will keep the air hot and limit rain coverage. Heat advisories are in effect through Sunday evening for the Western half of the Big Bend and Southwest Georgia. Lows overnight into Sunday morning will be warm and the air will be humid, adding to an uncomfortable feel early on. Air temperatures will be very close to the triple digits in interior parts of North Florida and South Georgia with heat index values possibly around 110 degrees! Coastal cities/towns will be forecast to be in the lower to mid 90s, but heat index values for those communities will likely be near or at 100 degrees as well. Rain coverage will be around 30% for North Florida, and more around 20% for South Georgia. The reason being is because the flow around high pressure will come from the North, blocking the sea breeze from pushing too far inland. Monday features a similar pattern with highs forecast to be in the upper 90s and low rain coverage (30%).
