MIDWAY, Fl. (WTXL) -- High pressure is in control, after a cold front passes our region yesterday. It will keep us clear for a few days before our next rainy system moves in on Saturday.

Clear and cooler winds from the northwest will keep the region near seasonal levels this Thursday. Morning lows are starting off in the lower to mid 40s.

The clear skies will continue through the afternoon. Abundant sunshine will warm us up to the middle and upper 60s.

Beach and Boating conditions look pleasant today, details are below:

Your Tide Times are also available here:

Friday starts off colder with lows expected to drop into the 30s. This is due to the high pressure system centering itself over our region. This calms the winds. The calmer the winds, the quicker the cooling process will occur. Temperatures are expected to rise back to the lower 70s as the air mass quickly modifies, with warmer south winds.

Saturday, a developing low pressure system in the Gulf of Mexico will approach us from the southwest. So far, the system doesn't look too vigorous, but it is expected to pull in more winds from the southwest, as well as increasing instability. With this in play, rain coverage is expected to be around 50%. Morning lows will be in the lower 50s with highs near 70°.

Sunday through Tuesday, clearer conditions will stick around, with warmth hovering overhead. Lows are expected to be near 50° with highs in the mid to upper 70s. 80° temps are possible then, as well.

Wednesday into Thursday next week, rain chances are expected to return, with Spring-like warmth sticking around.
