MIDWAY, Fl. (WTXL) -- Get ready for more sunshine and more heat as we end the work week. The weather pattern will not be too far off from typical July weather, though rain coverage is expected to grow heading into the weekend and next week.

Thursday: The morning will be generally quiet due to drier air moving in. This is because high pressure and an upper level low pressure area are pulling in winds from the north/northwest. Morning lows will be in the lower to mid 70s with partly cloudy skies. For the afternoon, a late start to the sea-breeze is expected, with northwest winds preventing it from travelling very far. Rain coverage will be spotty (20%) with the highest chance for Florida counties. Expect highs to climb to the lower and middle 90s.

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

Friday and Saturday: More of the same pattern is expected, though the aforementioned upper level low will start to move west of us. This will eventually allow more moisture and instability to return to our area, resulting in higher rain possibilities. Morning lows are forecast to be in the lower 70s with highs in the lower to mid 90s. Rain coverage will likely be around 30%.

Sunday through Tuesday: More moisture is expected to creep back into the area, though no major force for increased rain is anticipated at this point in time. That being said, heat will continue to exist (as it is July). Expect lows in the lower to mid 70s, highs in the lower to mid 90s, and rain coverage at around 40%.

Wednesday: More moisture and instability is expected, which will help increase rain coverage (50%), though highs will still be quite warm (lower 90s).
