MIDWAY, Fl. (WTXL) -- Another morning round of some freezing conditions is what some of us woke up to this Tuesday. The pattern change continues today, though, as winds start to turn to the southeast and south, pulling in more of that Gulf warmth.

This afternoon will likely be above the seasonal average (Avg low: 39° , Avg High: 63° ) with highs in the mid to upper 60s.

Expect mostly sunny conditions due to high pressure's nearby influence, but clouds will increase as the day progresses with a continuous south wind.

Tuesday night into Wednesday morning, morning lows will be cool, but those chilly 20s and 30s are not expected for the region. Instead, most of us will wake up to temperatures in the upper 40s near 50° . This change will only continue for the majority of the work week as winds continue to build in from the south because high pressure stays just east of the region.

From Wednesday through Friday, highs are forecast to stay in the mid to upper 70s with lows in the mid 50s.

High up in the sky, high pressure's influence will limit the rain chance through the work week. The moisture content in the atmosphere will not be high enough to support widespread showers through the end of the work week.

The weekend shows the potential for some rain as the high pressure weakens, allowing more moisture to move in. Rain coverage looks minimal for the weekend through Monday, with coverage at less than 20%. After that, signs point toward a more humid and wet set-up.

Highs in this period are still expected to be very warm, with temperatures in the upper 70s. We may see 80° reached during the weekend, so be on the look out for that.
