MIDWAY, Fl. (WTXL) -- More moisture and warming will work their way back into the local forecast for the end of the work week and the weekend ahead.

Thursday: After a foggy start for some with temperatures starting off near 70°, expect highs to reach the mid to upper 80s today. Skies are expected to be partly cloudy. With winds generally out of the southwest guided by a large area of low pressure to our north, moisture will stream into the Big Bend and South Georgia today. 

Rain coverage will likely be highest for eastern counties today, with an overall coverage at around 30%.

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

Friday and Saturday: Even more heating and moisture ahead of a disturbance in the western Gulf of Mexico will move in. This will increase rain coverage to around 40% for both days with lows expected to be in the lower 70s and highs in the upper 80s.

Sunday: As the aforementioned disturbances clears east of us, drier air will try to build in, limiting our rain opportunities for the beginning of next week. Expect Sunday lows in the lower 70s with highs in the upper 80s. Rain coverage will be around 30%.

Monday into Wednesday: Drier air will keep rain chances quite low, with lows near 70°, highs in the upper 80s (a few lower 90s possible), and rain coverage at less than 20%.
