MIDWAY, Fl. (WTXL) -- A cold front moves in today, bringing some early morning rain, before a drying and cooling trend moves in for Friday and the weekend ahead. Early into next week, cooler air will stick around for a prolonged Winter feeling.
To start, rain moving in with a cold front will make the morning a wet one, with temperatures in the mid to upper 60s. Southwest winds keep the area warm, but after the front moves east, we'll see a cooler northwest wind.
Afternoon temperatures are forecast to hover in the middle 60s all day long as cooler winds from the north, coupled with cloud cover, limit our area's opportunity to warm.
You can see the temperature behavior today with "The Next 27", a look at the next 27 hours from this morning:
Here is a look at the Marine Forecast this Thursday:
Thursday night into Friday morning starts the significant cool down, with morning lows expected to drop into the upper 30s. Skies will be mainly clear in the morning, but cirrus clouds may move in later that afternoon. Highs will be in the upper 50s to lower 60s. Saturday is essentially the same, but with cooler morning lows (middle 30s).
Sunday and Monday will be partly cloudy with highs in the upper 50s again, and lows in the upper 30s. On Sunday we may see some coastal showers due to a disturbance that will move into the Gulf of Mexico, but the rain coverage is minimal for now.
Tuesday into Wednesday, a slow but steady moderating trend is forecast with highs back in the lower to mid 60s.
