MIDWAY, Fl. (WTXL) -- A temporary spell of dry and cool air will stay with the region this Thursday, ahead of our next rain-maker. That rain will come from a developing low pressure system in the Gulf of Mexico. 

Today's highs are forecast to rise to the mid and upper 60s, with lows dropping to the mid 40s tonight. Into Friday, the morning is expected to stay cool and dry, before the afternoon warms up to the mid 60s. Typically, warmer air will re-surge ahead of these fronts, but cool air will prevent us from seeing 70s. This cool air will also keep the thunder chance unlikely. With that in mind, Friday evening into Saturday morning, consistent rain is still expected with rain coverage growing to 40-60% coverage in that time frame. Just to our north, freezing temperatures may help Northern Georgia and Northern Alabama see a wintry set-up with snow possible. That will NOT be the case for our region.

Into Saturday and Sunday afternoons, highs are forecast to be in the upper 40s to lower 50s with lows at or below freezing (upper 20s in some spots!). The skies will be clear with sunshine.

The frigid air will stick with us through Monday, with lows in the 30s and highs in the 50s. A warm-up will occur into Tuesday.
