MIDWAY, Fl. (WTXL) -- A DENSE FOG ADVISORY will be in effect until 10am as the moisture content at the surface stays very high with calm winds. This time around, the fog threat is more widespread across the Big Bend and South Georgia.

A cold front inches ever so close to our region, but it will be slow to pass. High pressure will guide winds from the west/southwest with more moisture working its way in.

Thursday morning starts off humid, with lows ranging from the mid 40s to mid 50s. As the sun continues to rise, expect more warmth to surge in again, with highs in the lower to mid 70s.

Partly cloudy skies will continue through the afternoon, with no rain expected. The Forecast in Focus shows the afternoon outlook with partly cloudy skies:

Here is a look at your Marine Forecast. Offshore conditions will be pleasant, with south winds at 5-10 knots.

Near the shore, the rip current risk will be low, with temperatures in the lower 70s.

Your Tide Times for Thursday are available here:

Friday morning will likely be foggy as well. You may want to plan for a few extra minutes during the morning commute to be prepared ahead of time. Lows will range in the upper 40s to lower 50s, with daytime highs back into the mid 70s. A slight chance of a rain shower will stay throughout the day (< 20% rain coverage). The approaching cold front from our north will help to keep the slight rain chance through the weekend.

As the front passes on Saturday, we will see a brief cool-down. Lows on Saturday will likely be in the upper 40s, with highs in the upper 60s as winds from the north move in. Sunday morning may see lower to mid 40s, with highs rebounding back to the mid 70s as the front slowly retreats back to the north. This will pull in warm air again. The rain coverage stays limited through the weekend (< 20%).

Monday through Wednesday features another above average pattern, with highs in the mid to upper 70s, and morning lows in the 50s. The rain coverage is expected to increase significantly after Wednesday...
