MIDWAY, Fl. (WTXL) -- High pressure will be the dominant weather factor for most of this week, keeping the Big Bend and South Georgia relatively dry, until our next jump in rain coverage occurs by the weekend. With the dry conditions in place, expect plenty of hot days this work week.
Tuesday: Expect mainly sunny skies with high pressure firmly in control. This is allowing for a cool morning and a hot afternoon is expected. Morning lows are in the mid 50s. Forecast highs are in the upper 80s to lower 90s.
Slightly cooler temps are expected near the coast. No rain is anticipated.
For the Beach and Boating forecast, high pressure will keep winds out of the southwest today, with low seas and smooth conditions along the bay and inland waters. More details below:
Tide Times for Wednesday are below:
Wednesday: More of the same is in the forecast for Wednesday, with hotter temperatures being the main difference. Winds out of the west will help keep the skies mainly clear. Expect morning lows in the upper 50s to near 60°, with highs in the lower 90s inland (mid to upper 80s near the coast). No rainfall is in the Wednesday forecast.
Thursday: More of the heat is anticipated with high pressure still in control. Forecast lows are in the lower 60s with highs in the lower to mid 90s possible. No rain is expected, though we may see partly cloudy skies.
Friday: A cold front will get closer to the local area by Friday, helping to increase moisture and cloud cover. This may help keep highs from reaching 90°, though it is still possible for inland spots. Rain is possible, though coverage is minimal (at less than 20%).
Saturday: The cold front is expected to pass our area, bringing scattered showers and storms to the Big Bend and South Georgia. Morning lows are forecast to be in the upper 60s with highs in the lower 80s. Rain coverage will be around 40%.
