MIDWAY, Fl. (WTXL) -- It is expected to stay hot for the next few afternoons as strong high pressure stays set up over the southeastern U.S. After starting off mild with lows in the low to mid 60s, the overall warm air mass combined with plentiful sunshine expected will allow highs to reach 90 degrees today and Wednesday. The air mass is relatively dry, as well, meaning that rain is not expected.

By Thursday and Friday, the influence of an approaching cold front will allow more cloud cover and a slight decrease in highs, but temperatures are still expected to be in the mid to upper 80s. Friday, the cold front could increase the chance of isolated showers and storms, but there is not a lot of moisture expected to move in with this system. This means widespread rain is not forecast.

By the weekend, very cool air is forecast to move in with daytime highs struggling to reach 80 degrees and lows are expected to range from the lower to mid 50s.
