MIDWAY, Fl. (WTXL) -- Not much change is anticipated through the next several days. The hot and humid days of August will continue.

Thursday: Plenty of heat and humidity is expected this afternoon after a muggy start to the morning with lows in the mid to upper 70s. For the afternoon, highs are anticipated to climb into the lower to possibly middle 90s.

With low level humidity, it can feel even HOTTER, with forecast heat index values reaching the 100s!

Scattered showers and storms look possible, though they may be limited by NW winds pinning the sea breeze along North Florida counties. Rain coverage will be around 40% for North Florida and South Georgia will have around 20% coverage.

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

Friday through Sunday: A cold front approaching from the northwest is expected to enhance the unsettled trend in the afternoons, allowing for higher rain coverage. Expect lows in the lower to mid 70s, highs in the lower 90s, with heat indices potentially approaching the 100s. In addition, rain coverage will likely be scattered, at around 40-50%.

Next Monday through Wednesday: More of a hot Summer forecast is anticipated with lows in the lower to mid 70s, highs in the lower 90s, and heat indices again eclipsing 100°. Some drier air may limit rain coverage, though it doesn't appear to be very significant at this point in time. Isolated to scattered showers/storms are possible each day (30-40% coverage).

You can catch the forecast on ABC 27 News starting at 5:00 each morning, as well as ABC 27 News at Noon. Chief Meteorologist Casanova Nurse has your forecast at 5:00, 5:30, 6:00, and 11:00 this evening.
