MIDWAY, Fl. (WTXL) -- The first of two cool-downs is here and we'll stay shy of 90 degrees for the rest of the week. A more significant cool spell is expected early next week after a stronger cold front pushes through the southeast.

Thursday and Friday: The end of the work week will have morning lows generally in the mid to upper 60s under mainly clear skies. Later in the afternoons, highs are forecast to reach the lower to mid 80s with partly cloudy conditions. Rain coverage will be low (10-20%), focused along the Big Bend waters and closer to the Nature Coast.

Thursday Marine forecast information is below:

Saturday: Temperatures may warm up a tad bit ahead of a new front which will bring an elevated risk for showers and storms. Expect morning lows in the upper 60s to lower 70s with afternoon highs in the mid 80s. Scattered showers and thunderstorms are likely in the afternoon as the front approaches. Rain coverage is forecast to be around 40%.

Sunday: The front will push through early Sunday, ushering in cooler air. Expect morning temperatures to range in the lower to mid 60s with afternoon highs only in the 70s. Rain coverage will be around 20% in the morning, due to the possibility of the front still being over part of the region by then. The afternoon will be more clear.

Early next week: Monday starts off colder with morning lows in the lower 50s. Afternoon highs will likely be in the 70s under mainly sunny skies. No rain is anticipated. For Tuesday and Wednesday, more moisture may move into the region, adding slightly milder conditions. Expect lows in the upper 50s on Tuesday and mid 60s on Wednesday. Afternoon highs look to be in the mid 70s on Tuesday and upper 70s on Wednesday. Rain coverage for those two days is forecast to be around 30%.
