MIDWAY, Fl. (WTXL) -- A dry period of weather will not last for very long, mainly for Thursday only before more moisture returns, increasing the forecast coverage for rainfall this weekend.

Thursday: The morning is starting off dry and mild with temperatures generally in the lower 70s. A dry, north wind will help keep it feeling dry through the day. Skies are forecast to be mainly sunny to partly cloudy through the day. Expect highs to reach the lower 90s today, with lower humidity making it feel less uncomfortable in the peak of the afternoon. A stray shower cannot be ruled out, though any rain will likely be focused closer to I-75.

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

Friday: As winds from the north turn back to the east, Atlantic moisture will steadily return to the local area. This will promote more humidity and more storms returning (30% coverage). Expect morning lows in the lower 70s and afternoon highs in the lower 90s.

This weekend: More moist flow from the east and south will help to increase the rain potential for Saturday and Sunday. Expect morning lows in the lower 70s, afternoon highs in the lower 90s, and rain coverage at 40 to 50%.

Early next week: Slightly above average temperatures are anticipated with morning lows in the lower to mid 70s, afternoon highs in the lower 90s, with rain coverage around 30-40%.

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