MIDWAY, Fl. (WTXL) -- Sun and clouds will likely dominate the next couple of days as a weakening front pulls away from the region. This Wednesday, showers are not expected to occur as high pressure nearby stays in control (rain coverage <20%). Daytime highs will vary, however, with western areas in the mid to upper 80s and eastern areas likely a bit cooler with more cloud cover (lower 80s). Lows into Thursday morning are forecast to drop to near 70 degrees. Tomorrow's forecast looks like a repeat of today's.

High pressure to our north and low pressure to our south (Hurricane Matthew) will allow for a breezy set up for the next several days. Into Friday, the hurricane is expected to make its closest approach, but no notable impacts are expected for the Big Bend and South Georgia. Areas east of I-75 may see isolated storms with gusty winds, but the threats will be minimal. NOTHING ON THE SCALE OF HURRICANE HERMINE IS EXPECTED.

More on Matthew will be on the Tropics check available online on WTXL.TV/Weather/Hurricane_Center.
