MIDWAY, Fl. (WTXL) -- Summer weather continues for the end of the work week into the weekend. This means that we should continue to expect plenty of warmth, humidity, and scattered storms each afternoon.

We'll still be under an air mass with plenty of warmth and moisture. High pressure nearby will help steer a warm, moist wind into the Gulf coast, keeping rain coverage possible each day.

Thursday: The morning starts with quiet but warm conditions. Expect temperatures in the mid 70s before and during sunrise. A stray shower is possible. Later in the afternoon, temperatures are expected to reach the upper 80s to lower 90s with humidity making it feel hotter. Scattered showers and thunderstorms are likely to pop up in the afternoon (40% coverage). Locally heavy rainfall is possible.

Thursday Marine and Beach forecast information and your Thursday Tide Times are below:

Friday: Similar weather may continue for Friday. So again, expect morning lows in the mid 70s, afternoon highs in the lower 90s, with scattered showers and storms popping up in the afternoons (40% coverage).

Saturday and Sunday: Similar weather to the end of the work week is expected for the weekend. Forecast lows are in the mid 70s, forecast highs are in the lower 90s, with scattered showers and storms possible in the afternoons. Rain coverage is forecast to be around 50% on Saturday and 40% on Sunday.

Next week: A slightly drier air mass may help to limit rain coverage to be more isolated (30%) for Monday and Tuesday, with heat and humidity still prevalent. Expect morning lows in the mid 70s and afternoon highs in the lower to mid 90s.

Wednesday may bring higher rain coverage back to the region...
