MIDWAY, Fl. (WTXL) -- More rain is anticipated to end the work week as a surge of moisture from the Gulf of Mexico and a surface boundary drift into the Big Bend and South Georgia. While some areas will fall short of "wash out" conditions, the potential for heavy rain is evident and everyone should keep rain gear close by.

Thursday: Mostly cloudy skies are expected as the surface boundary to our south and more moisture work their way in from the Gulf of Mexico. Expect lows in the lower to mid 70s with afternoon highs in the lower to mid 80s.

Excess cloud cover and a higher chance for rain will limit the potential for daytime temperatures to rise by much. Rain coverage at it's peak is forecast to be around 70%. 

The further south you live, the higher the chance for heavy rain, though ALL of the region have some potential to see showers/storms today.

Beach and Boating forecast information and your Thursday Tide Times are below:

Friday: Mostly cloudy skies are expected to continue yet again with lows in the middle 70s and highs in the lower to mid 80s. As the surface boundary lifts north, more moisture is expected to follow with rain coverage at around 60%.

Saturday and Sunday: Mostly cloudy skies will continue as a cold front from the west approaches, though rain coverage will be near normal for this time of year (at around 40%). Expect lows in the lower to mid 70s with highs closing in on 90°.

Monday through Wednesday: A hot and humid pattern (typical for August) will be in place with morning lows in the lower to mid 70s, highs in the lower 90s, and rain coverage at around 40% each day.

You can catch the forecast on WTXL Sunrise starting at 5:00, as well as WTXL Midday at Noon. Meteorologist Jennifer Meyers has your forecast at 5:00, 5:30, 6:00, and 11:00 this evening.
