MIDWAY, Fla. (WTXL) -- The heat wave continues and will end Sunday as highs once again across the Big Bend are expected to be near 100 degrees. The rainfall action will likely be isolated through the rest of Saturday and Sunday, but in the evening hours of Sunday, a trough will push in more moisture from the northeast but not before temps reach the upper 90s in the early afternoon. Coverage will be around 40% on Sunday. The flow from the northeast is expected to continue through Wednesday and keep temperatures cooler. And by cooler, I mean, lower to mid 90s. This will be a much welcome reprieve from the intense heat. However the incoming air mass, while cooler, is dry, so rain will still be limited through the week around 20-30%. Later toward the week, southerly flow is expected to return and warm us up a bit (not as extreme as this past week) and rain coverage will lightly increase. The invest in the tropics has developed into a tropical depression. Its current track has no direct impacts on the Big Bend but we will monitor it closely as it nears the Florida Peninsula.
