MIDWAY, Fla. (WTXL) -- From the Storm Team Weather Center ...

We will actually transition into a slightly drier (less humid) pattern just in time for your Fourth of July activities.  This won’t necessarily mean cooler temperatures in the afternoons to come, but it won’t feel as stifling with a drier air mass forced into our area with the northwest winds and a modest cold front entering the region.  You may feel a noticeable difference in the next couple of mornings, as lows tonight fall deeper into the lower 70s, especially in inland areas.  Evening showers and storms are possible along I-75 and near the coastal Big Bend.  Showers will become more scarce later in the afternoon Friday, but highs will still climb to the middle 90s.  It’ll stay hot all holiday weekend, but Saturday morning may feature lows in the mid and upper 60s with hardly a rain chance in the afternoon.  Moisture returns starting Sunday with widely scattered thunderstorms possible.  Hurricane Arthur is moving north-northeast and is set to affect the North Carolina coastline tonight.
