MIDWAY, Fla. (WTXL) -- The temperatures are heating up for the weekend after strong storms passed the area Friday afternoon/ evening. A frontal boundary stays close by with high pressure building in the Gulf. But even with the hotter temps across some portions of the area, there is still some energy for some unstable weather out west, with a couple of severe warnings already issued earlier Saturday afternoon. The strong storm activity, with extensive cloud cover helped to cool western zones off, but the heat may continue with heat index values likely ranging in the triple digits. Rain activity should stay low for Sunday (coverage 20-30%) but still, a few storms may produce gusty winds and heavy downpours. Daytime highs will likely range in the mid to upper 90s across North Florida and South Georgia with overnight lows into Sunday morning in the mid to upper 70s. A gradual increase in rain coverage is expected as we progress through the week (30-50% coverage with highest probabilities around Wednesday). Daytime highs will likely stick around the mid 90s, with low 90s by late week.
