MIDWAY, Fla. (WTXL) -- The hot, somewhat stagnant pattern continues for the region as a weak ridge of higher pressure and winds from the north limit the rain coverage. That will change a bit for Sunday with the advance of the sea-breeze working from the Gulf of Mexico. The clashing of northerly winds and the sea-breeze can help promote some shower/ storm development though the coverage is expected to be low at around 20%. Tropical Storm Ana, though compact, is helping to steer winds from the north and keep the area hot. High temperatures for Sunday will likely be around 90 degrees around the coast with possible mid-90 readings for inland zones. Lows are forecast to be in the mid 60s Sunday night into Monday. The hot pattern is forecast to continue into the work week until a trough of low pressure helps to drive in a front by late week. That in turn will increase the cloudiness and rain coverage, and drop temperatures back to near seasonal levels.
