MIDWAY, Fl. (WTXL) -- More Summer weather continues after the Solar Eclipse we experienced yesterday. Highs will likely stay warmer than average through most of this week.

Tuesday: Morning lows are expected to start in the lower to mid 70s. As we move into the afternoon, a typical Summer-time sea breeze pattern will take shape. This means after a hot and humid afternoon start with temperatures reaching the lower to mid 90s, rain coverage will likely increase. 40% coverage is expected today.

If you don't see rainfall, expect heat indices to climb into the upper 90s and even the triple digits for some!

Beach and Boating forecast information and your Tuesday Tide Times are below:

Wednesday and Thursday: More of the same continues as we see daytime thunderstorms fire up due to hot and moist conditions. Mornings will likely start off in the lower to mid 70s, highs will be in the lower to mid 90s, and heat indices will likely approach the triple digits. Rain coverage will likely be isolated to scattered each day (30-40% coverage).

Friday and Saturday: Scattered showers and thunderstorms will likely continue to increase as a frontal boundary approaches from the northwest. This will keep our highs closer to average (lower 90s), with mostly cloudy skies and rain coverage at around 50%.

Sunday and Monday: Odds are that a brief drying trend will take place late into the forecast period. However, some models indicate that a dying tropical system may keep us unsettled and wet. At this point in time, the forecast looks mostly cloudy with highs in the upper 80s and isolated storms appear possible (30% coverage).
