MIDWAY, Fl. (WTXL) -- This warmer than average pattern will continue through the middle of the week as high pressure east of us helps to pull in moisture and warm air from the Gulf of Mexico. A complex frontal system west of the region will move toward us through Wednesday. Until it passes, we will stay in this Spring-like pattern.

Tuesday starts off mild, with temperatures in the 50s to lower 60s in the AM. Patchy fog is possible in the morning. Later this afternoon, daytime heating coupled with warm southerly winds will help to bring highs to the lower and even mid 80s. Eastern counties may see a few areas of upper 80s.

While moisture continues to build, there will be no major influence in forcing rainfall on Tuesday, so the rain coverage is minimal (less than 20%).

Here is your Beach and Boating forecast:

Tide Times are below:

Wednesday will be warm to start, as well. Expect morning fog with temperatures in the lower 60s. Wednesday afternoon will be very warm again, with highs forecast to potentially jump to the mid 80s before rain coverage starts to jump. Overall, coverage is expected to be around 30%, gradually increasing in the later PM hours.

Wednesday night into Thursday morning, the main front starts to push through the local area. A few thunderstorms may be severe. South Georgia counties are under a MARGINAL risk for severe weather as this line pushes through. The threat is not expected to be widespread. Expect Thursday morning lows to be in the 60s, with highs only reaching near 70°.

Friday into Saturday will be cooler as winds from the northeast roll in. Expect lows dropping to the 40s and highs near 70°. Saturday morning may be even cooler than Friday, with some areas potentially in the upper 30s.

Warming is expected to come back for Sunday into Monday with lows in the 40s with highs in the mid to upper 70s. Clouds will move back into the region as winds return from the south.
