MIDWAY, Fl. (WTXL) -- Rain chances continue each day with warm and muggy afternoons to wrap up the work week. A heavy and widespread rain event is forecast for the latter half of the Memorial Day weekend, where flooding looks to be more of a threat.

Thursday: Today, rain coverage is not forecast to be as widespread as previous days, but still rain coverage is in the picture (40% in the afternoon). The morning starts off mild and muggy with lows in the lower 70s under a mix of clouds and clear skies. Areas of fog are possible in the morning.

Below is a recent run of the "Forecast in Focus" showing the potential accumulation of rain through Friday:

Thursday Marine/Beach forecast information and your Thursday Tide Times are below:

Friday: A similar pattern to Thursday is expected for your Friday, with morning lows in the lower 70s, highs in the mid to upper 80s, and rain coverage increasing in the afternoon. This time, rain looks to be more widespread with coverage forecast to be around 60%.

This weekend and Memorial Day: Plenty of rain is in the forecast with the potential of five inches (possible more) falling over the weekend. This may lead to a flash flooding threat over the weekend. Expect lows in the lower 70s, highs in the upper 70s to lower 80s, and rain coverage high each day (70% on Saturday, 90% on Sunday, and 70% on Memorial Day).

Rain coverage looks to continue through midweek next week, though it'll be more scattered with highs in the mid to upper 80s expected.
