MIDWAY, Fl. (WTXL) -- The work week will likely finish on a hot and humid note with a decent chance for storms as a cold front stalls across the southeast. As this front moves south, cooler and drier air is expected to move in for a short while, starting late this weekend.
Thursday: After another muggy morning start with lows in the mid 70s, the day should quickly heat up. Expect highs to reach the lower to mid 90s, with heat indices approaching or surpassing 100°.
Rain coverage will be scattered through the afternoon as the sea breeze and an approaching front interact. 40% coverage is expected today.
Beach and Boating forecast information and Thursday Tide Times are below:
Friday: Likely a repeat of Thursday, Friday calls for more heat and humidity. Lows are anticipated to be in the middle 70s, with highs in the lower to mid 90s, and rain coverage around 40%. Heat indices may reach the triple digits yet again.
Saturday: The front will stay stalled over our area, though we'll start to see some drying effects for South Georgia first. Expect morning lows in the lower to mid 70s with highs in the upper 80s to lower 90s. Rain coverage will be widely isolated in South Georgia (20-30%) with higher rain chances along and south of the front. North Florida will likely be along the boundary, warranting rain coverage to be around 40-50%.
Sunday through Tuesday: Cooler and drier air is anticipated with rain coverage each day at or less than 20%. Expect lows in the lower 70s and highs in the mid to upper 80s!
Wednesday: Midweek and beyond for the next week will rely on the eventual path Tropical Storm Harvey takes. If the system eventually moves deeper into Dixie Alley and the southeastern U.S., odds are that our rain chances will kick up. For now, a near-normal day is expected: Lows in the lower 70s, highs near 90° and rain coverage at around 40%.
