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

An unusually dry air mass has sunk into the region from the north.  It has helped to limit the cloudiness in the area and kept rain opportunities mainly absent.  Moisture levels are also much lower, which will lead to extra cooling chances for the overnight period.  Current scattered clouds will thin out and the sky will become clear.  With light to calm winds, temperatures will fall fairly quickly Friday morning into the mid to upper 60s in most inland areas.  Sunshine will remain abundant tomorrow, with a few scattered clouds mixed in by afternoon, with highs that will rapidly rise into the low and mid 90s.  The Gulf flow returns over the weekend and will combine with a broad disturbance reaching the Deep South, bringing chances for rain and thunderstorms up significantly for the first few days of next week.  However, the tropics remain somewhat inactive and development is not expected.
