MIDWAY, Fl. (WTXL) -- High pressure continues doing it's job of blocking stormy weather from reaching the area. However, it's influence will weaken and winds will start to blow out of the southeast and south. This will bring more moisture and clouds to the area, eventually leading to rain by the weekend.

Wednesday: With the high pressure in firm control, expect highs to be in the lower to mid 90s in the afternoon with a mix of sunshine and passing clouds. No rain expected for Wednesday. Coastal areas are expected to be cooler, with highs in the mid 80s.

Beach and Boating forecast information is below, with your Wednesday Tide Times included:

Thursday: A warm morning is expected with lows in the upper 60s, and the influence of high pressure will keep winds out of the southeast/south. This may lead to a stray shower or storm in the afternoon (rain coverage at less than 20%). Expect highs to still be rather hot, with numbers in the lower to mid 90s.

Friday: A slightly drier day is forecast, but the heat will still be around. Expect morning lows in the upper 60s with highs in the lower to mid 90s. No rain is expected for Friday.

Saturday: The high pressure system will continue to slowly break down, allowing more clouds and unstable air to enter the area. Widely solated showers and storms are possible (20% coverage) with daytime highs in the lower 90s.

Sunday and Monday: The moisture content of the air is expected to become much higher for Sunday and Monday as a cold front arrives and pushes through the local area. This should support scattered to widespread showers and thunderstorms (Rain coverage is at 40% for Sunday and 50% for Monday). Lows are forecast to be in the lower 70s with highs at or below 90°.

Tuesday: The front may linger, adding more opportunity for isolated showers and storms (30%). Expect lows near 70° and highs near 90°.
