MIDWAY, Fl. (WTXL) -- A Summer-like set-up of warmth, humidity, and occasional afternoon rainfall is expected to continue to end the work week before more heat and more storms return this weekend. Next week is showing hints of significant drying of this very wet pattern we've been under.

Thursday: The day starts off mild and muggy with morning lows in the lower to mid 70s under mainly clear to partly cloudy skies. Some light fog/mist is expected today but rain coverage should remain very low until the afternoon once again. Expect daytime highs to rise to the upper 80s, with forecast peak rain coverage at around 40%.

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

Friday: A similar set-up to Thursday is expected for Friday, though lower 90s are more likely to be widespread for daytime highs as a warm ridge of high pressure builds west of us. Expect morning temperatures to be in the lower 70s with peak rain coverage forecast to be around 40%.

This weekend: Hotter temperatures and a cold front out west will help to keep local instability quite high. This may allow for strong Summer storms at times over the weekend. Expect morning lows in the lower to mid 70s with limited rain coverage. More rain is likely on both afternoons with forecast coverage at around 50%. High temperatures are anticipated to approach the lower to mid 90s this weekend. As the aforementioned front passes east of us, rain coverage should drop with more dry air expected to be working in.

Early next week: Drier and slightly cooler air is forecast to return. Rain coverage is forecast to be very low (10% for Tuesday and Wednesday). Expect morning lows to be in the upper 60s to lower 70s with daytime highs reaching near 90 degrees.
