MIDWAY, Fla. (WTXL) -- Halloween started off cloudy, but the sun was able to break through in the early afternoon. The sun wont dominate all weekend though, as a cold front out west draws near and helps increase the cloud cover moving into Sunday. The front, wont pass over the weekend, but a nearby warm front will help to increase very humid flow from the Gulf, as well as increasing warmth. This can help support some strong thunderstorm activity from Sunday into Monday.

Lows into Sunday are forecast to be significantly warmer than what we are used to seeing, with values ranging in the upper 60s to near 70 degrees. The reason for the much warmer change is cloud cover and warm, humid winds from the Gulf of Mexico. Advancing into Sunday afternoon, daytime highs will be dependent on the amount of clouds present from the front. Forecast highs are ranging from the lower to mid 80s, but if clouds dominate, highs may struggle to rise to those levels. Rain coverage is at 60% for Sunday with the highest coverage west of the Big Bend. A few storms may be strong to severe in the evening due to strong upper level winds, warm air, and plenty of moisture to support them. 

Moving into Sunday night, the extensive shield of clouds will likely keep overnight lows into Monday from falling below 70 degrees. Monday looks to be even stormier with 70% coverage of storms across the region and highs struggling to reach 80 degrees.
