MIDWAY, Fl. (WTXL) -- As high pressure moves steadily away from the region, winds will still be guided from the south, keeping the humidity and warmth on the rise. Temperatures are forecast to reach above 80 degrees Thursday afternoon across most of the area. Exceptions to this are along the Apalachicola River Basin as winds will move off the Bay directly into the Basin. This means the cooler shelf waters along the Forgotten Coast will help to keep temperatures in the upper 70s, rather than above 80 degrees. If in the Suwannee River area, temperatures may likely be the warmest (mid to upper 80s) as winds will move off from the peninsula, providing for less cooling than the Gulf waters. Friday features virtually the same pattern, with some areas possibly even warmer than Thursday.

Rain coverage looks more and more likely to be focused on Saturday night into Sunday morning with highest coverage on Sunday (60%). So far, severe threats look minimal, but not zero. Stay tuned to wtxl.tv/weather for more details tonight.
