MIDWAY, Fla. (WTXL) -- After the cold front passage that occurred yesterday, temperatures have stayed comfortable in the 70s throughout the day. Those temps will fall into the 40s tonight! Skies will clear allowing for any heat gathered in the afternoon to exit into the atmosphere allowing the temps to take such a dive. Why are the skies clearing? High pressure is setting in after the front across the U.S. and as it moves ever closer to our area, the air around it will be forced downward, hindering cloud development. The pattern continues into Monday with the main difference being the wind direction. A southerly component of the winds may make our highs rebound into the lower 80s but our nights would still be on the cooler side for the Big Bend & South Georgia (upper 40s-lower 50s). After Tuesday, a disturbance across the U.S. nears, increasing cloud cover and rain chances return, even if slight (20%). The winds will be forced from the south again, allowing temps to rise back into the mid 80s through next Saturday.
