MIDWAY, Fl. (WTXL) -- The heat continues for Thursday as high pressure continues it's dominance over our local area. The pattern will soon turn more active, however, as a cold front from the west brings more rain by the weekend.
Thursday: With high pressure slowly losing it's influence, we will start to see more clouds working their way into our region today. Still, with the overall warmth of the air mass in play coupled with plentiful sunshine, highs are forecast to be in the lower 90s inland with mid to upper 80s near the coast. No rain is in the forecast for Thursday.

Tide Times for Thursday are below:
Friday: Temperatures are not anticipated to be so high on Friday as a cold front gets closer to us. This will increase more cloud cover, which can hinder warming opportunity. Still, forecast highs are in the upper 80s inland (lower to mid 80s near the coast). A few spots may still reach 90°. A stray shower or storm is possible, though any rain will likely be limited and confined to the afternoon hours.
Saturday: More clouds with storms are expected on this Saturday. This will be due to a cold front moving in. At this point in time, storm coverage looks to be scattered (40% coverage), with morning lows in the upper 60s and highs in the lower 80s.
Sunday: Skies should clear for this Mother's Day. This will allow a nice warm afternoon to occur with sunshine. Morning lows are expected to be near 60° with afternoon highs climbing into the mid and upper 80s.
Monday through Wednesday: High pressure will retain control over the eastern half of the country. This will keep mainly clear mornings in the picture with lows around 60° and highs in the lower 90s.
