MIDWAY, Fl. (WTXL) -- Cold, cloudy, windy, and rainy conditions will persist for Thursday and Friday before our first likely widespread freeze of the season this weekend.
Thursday and Friday: The forecasts for both days are quite similar. Until a reinforcing Arctic front moves south of us, we will be in a cold and rainy pattern for both Thursday and Friday. With cold air already in place, and cloud cover blocking out the sun, daytime temperatures will BARELY rise with forecast highs for Thursday in the upper 40s to lower 50s and forecast highs on Friday expected to stay in the 40s. Morning temps will also start in the 40s, meaning little to no change is expected both days.
Rain will be persistent and widespread at times, though most of the rain will be light to moderate. Factor in breezy winds with cold rain and you have an uncomfortable pattern set up for the end of the work week.
Beach and Boating forecast information and your Thursday Tide Times are below:
Saturday: Overcast skies may continue for the first half of Saturday with rain still possible early on. Rain coverage is forecast to be around 50%, with lows possibly dropping to the 30s.
