MIDWAY, Fl. (WTXL) -- The end of the work week will bring elevated cloud cover and then more rain. Afterward, cooler and drier air will move in for the weekend and the start of the next work week.

Thursday: Developing low pressure in the western Gulf of Mexico will push to the east/northeast. This will bring more clouds and eventually more rain to the Big Bend and South Georgia. Expect morning lows to be near 60 degrees. Afternoon high temperatures are forecast to be in the lower to mid 70s. Expect cloudy skies, with areas of showers possible out west in the morning. More rain is likely in the later afternoon for Thursday. Isolated thunderstorms are possible. Overall rain coverage is forecast to be at around 70%.

Thursday Marine forecast information is below:

Friday: Friday morning into the early afternoon will be similar to late Thursday, with widespread rain likely. A few thunderstorms are possible. Thunderstorms are possible, but the highest chance for thunder will likely be along the eastern Big Bend and the Suwannee Valley. There is a MARGINAL risk for severe weather in the eastern Big Bend and Northeast Florida, as there may be an opportunity where shear and instability allow for isolated storms to produce strong, gusty winds. Expect lows to be in the mid to upper 60s with highs in the mid 70s. Overall rain coverage is forecast to be at 80%. Locally heavy rain is possible for both days, and 1-3 inches of rain or more could fall for some local spots through Friday.

Saturday and Sunday: Cooler and drier air returns for the weekend. A reinforcing front on Saturday may bring a few clouds, though any rain potential will be very close to zero. Expect lows near 50 degrees on Saturday with upper 40s on Sunday. Highs look to be near 70 degrees on Saturday and lower 70s on Sunday.

Early next week: Another reinforcing front on Monday will likely do what the Saturday front may do. Expect lows to be in the upper 40s. Highs are forecast to be in the 70s.
