MIDWAY, Fl. (WTXL) -- After another clear weekend due to strong high pressure keeping the area clear, the work week starts off with more active weather. High pressure will still be in control for most of the week ahead, but the winds around the high will start to steer in from the south, helping to keep the area even warmer! For the short term, Monday will likely be the wettest day of the work week. A weak upper level disturbance combined with the sea breeze coming off the Gulf of Mexico will help trigger isolated showers and storms in the afternoon hours. Morning lows will range in the low to mid 60s, with warmest spots near the coast. Afternoon highs on Monday will likely be above average again, ranging in the mid to upper 80s. Keep in mind, this warmth only intensifies through the week with highs reaching 90 degrees by next weekend. By then, warm becomes an understatement and HOT will be the more common phrase. Through this period of extensive warmth, the sea breeze may trigger widely isolated showers and storms, but the coverage after Monday remains minimal (<20%).
Meteorologist Max Tsaparis will have more details for the beginning of your work week forecast Monday, starting at 5 a.m.
