MIDWAY, Fl. (WTXL) -- Thursday will feature an increase in rain potential and that potential will stick around the local area for the next few days, until a dry period takes place late this weekend into next week.

Thursday: Some upper level energy in the southeast coupled with an increase of surface moisture will keep the local area under an unstable air mass. This means scattered thunderstorms are possible as the day progresses. Expect morning lows in the lower 70s, highs near 90°, with rain coverage around 40-50%.

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

Friday and Saturday: Moisture and instability will linger, keeping rain chances around. Expect lows in the lower 70s, highs near 90°, with rain coverage near 30%.

Sunday through Wednesday: Drier air is anticipated to move in. Aside from a stray shower on Sunday, the end of the forecast period should be quite dry. This will allow for cooler mornings and somewhat warm afternoons. Forecast lows are in the upper 60s with highs in the upper 80s to lower 90s.
