MIDWAY, Fl. (WTXL) -- A moderating trend in the temperatures will continue, with another day of unseasonable warmth expected again today. High pressure is moving east, allowing more of a southerly wind today. This will also increase cloud cover ahead of an approaching frontal system that will be over the western Gulf states.
Tuesday AKA Valentine's Day, starts off cooler than Monday. Temperatures are near 50° to start. Warmer winds from the south will keep us warm this afternoon. Highs will be in the mid to upper 70s. Skies will remain partly cloudy.

Tide Times for today:
Wednesday morning into the early afternoon will likely be the time-frame for more active weather. A frontal system approaching from the west will sharply increase rain coverage to around 60-70% for all of the Big Bend and South Georgia.
Timing for models vary, but expect storms to occur around sunrise. A few storms may be strong to severe.
A MARGINAL risk for severe weather exists for all of the Big Bend and South Georgia, as the ingredients for severe weather exist, but they aren't high enough to promote a standard or more significant threat. If that changes, we'll let you know. Lows will be around 60 degrees with highs in the lower to mid 70s.
Thursday will be cooler as the front passes. High pressure returns from the northwest, pulling in some cooler winds from the north. Morning lows are forecast to be in the lower 40s. Highs will be in the 60s with mainly clear skies.
Friday morning, high pressure will center itself over the local area. Typically, the winds calm down signifcantly, allowing for ideal cooling. We may see mid to upper 30s for lows on Friday morning. Highs will quickly warm back to near 70°.
The weekend will warm up quickly, with another chance of rain on Saturday as another low pressure system (this time in the Gulf of Mexico) approaches from the southwest. We may see thunderstorms with this, but the forecast still looks unclear at this time. Expect lows near 50° and highs in the lower 70s for Saturday. Sunday is expected to be much clearer.
