MIDWAY, Fl. (WTXL) -- A stalled front to our north will keep the local area in an unsettled air mass for midweek. As we progress into the latter half of the week, the front will decay but our rain chances and heat will stay with us.

Wednesday: The morning starts off like a usual August morning with lows in the lower to mid 70s and a general humid feeling to the air. Some areas of patchy fog are possible, though they are not expected to last for very long. Expect afternoon highs to reach the upper 80s to lower 90s with partly cloudy skies becoming mostly cloudy.

Rain coverage is expected to be somewhat higher today, though a wash-out is NOT anticipated. Rain coverage will be around 60%.

Heat index values are still expected to be oppressive with some areas reaching "feels like" temperatures in the mid to upper 90s!

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

Thursday and Friday: The sea breeze will be the main forcing for showers and storms for the late week, but rain chances will still be high enough to warrant rain gear! Expect lows in the lower to mid 70s, highs in the lower 90s, with rain coverage around 40-50%. Heat indices may approach the upper 90s where rain doesn't occur.

Saturday and Sunday: We'll see some slight drying added to the picture, but when it comes down to it, rain still is possible in an isolated to scattered nature. Forecast lows continue to be in the lower to mid 70s with highs possibly reaching the mid 90s. Rain coverage will range from 30-40%.

Monday and Tuesday: If it sounds like a broken record, it is because the forecast doesn't show much of any notable change yet. Sea breeze showers/storms are possible as a new front stalls to our north. Expect lows in the lower to mid 70s, highs in the lower 90s, with a scattered coverage of PM storms.
