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

A new source of drier air, carried into the area on a more northerly wind flow, has scrubbed the excess moisture from yesterday away and allowed abundant, warming sun.  Temperatures are running above average, even close to 90° in a few cases, and there isn't much change in the long-term temperature trends through early next week.  Tonight, though, the existence of a clear sky and lighter winds, even calm at times, should support readings cooling down into the mid 50s interior to around 60° at the coast and toward the southeast.  Mostly sunny to partly cloudy conditions are likely Friday as the east wind re-introduces some Atlantic moisture into the region.  Highs will reach the mid to upper 80s again.  Over the weekend, a weak disturbance rides into the Deep South and may form extra clouds and a few showers, especially in Georgia.  Then, upper-level high pressure emerges from the west and supports an ongoing dry trend with warmer-than-average temperatures for most of next week.
