MIDWAY, Fl. (WTXL) -- An upper level trough will continue to pull in moisture and instability over the southeast, keeping the chance for unsettled weather higher than usual most of this week. A brief break on Friday/early Saturday will likely be interrupted by another trough carrying another dose of higher rain chances for the weekend.

Wednesday: The morning starts off mostly cloudy with some local areas featuring DENSE FOG. There is clearly a sign of high moisture and this will help lead to another dose of scattered showers and thunderstorms this afternoon (rain coverage at 60%).

Expect morning lows to stay in the lower to mid 70s with highs in the upper 80s to lower 90s with mostly cloudy skies.

Beach and Boating forecast information and your Wednesday Tide Times are below:

Thursday and Friday: A fairly typical Summer set-up is possible with higher rain coverage on Thursday (due to influence from low pressure). Due to low pressure being nearby, winds will come out of the north and northwest, pinning the sea breeze in Florida for most of the early afternoon. This means afternoon showers and storms may kick in later than usual. Expect lows in the lower to mid 70s and highs in the lower 90s. Rain coverage will be around 50% Thursday and 40% Friday.

Saturday and Sunday: Models still show another disturbance of low pressure digging into the southeast U.S. This will keep our region primed for more rainfall, with rain coverage at around 50-60% for the weekend. Expect lows in the middle 70s with highs in the upper 80s.

Monday and Tuesday: There are signs that some northern areas may see drier air. This may help to influence rain coverage to drop, but rain still appears possible (especially for Big Bend & Suwannee Valley counties). Expect lows in the lower to mid 70s with highs near 90°.
