MIDWAY, Fl. (WTXL) -- Humid and mild conditions will continue through the week with persistent cloud cover. Periods of rain are possible through Friday until cooler and drier air returns for the weekend ahead.
Tuesday: A cold front from the west is approaching the region, and that will help enhance rain chances for Tuesday. The front is not expected to pass the region, so we'll stay warm and humid through the days ahead as the front stalls. The morning is starting quite humid, with temperatures in the lower 70s. With an abundance of moisture present, clouds are likely and fog is possible through the morning. Later this afternoon, there should be a mix of mostly cloudy skies with some sunshine. Highs are forecast to be around 80 degrees. Showers and storms are likely to develop today (50% coverage) with an isolated strong or severe storm possible.
Tuesday Marine forecast information is below:
Wednesday through Friday: Scattered showers and thunderstorms are possible through the rest of the week as a stalled frontal boundary stays nearby, adding instability and moisture to the local picture. Expect lows in the upper 60s with highs in the upper 70s to lower 80s. Rain coverage will be around 50-60% through Friday.
Saturday and Sunday: As we finally see a cold front pass through the region Saturday morning, we will get a cooler and drier air mass to move in. It may move in after Saturday morning, which means some showers (40% coverage) may still be around then, with cooler temperatures (lower 60s) accompanying them. Afterward, the skies should clear. Expect highs on the weekend to be in the 60s, with morning lows in the upper 40s to near 50 degrees.
Next week: Signs are pointing to another front early next week and beyond that, very cold air may move into the Big Bend and South Georgia. While there is still some uncertainty in just how cold it will get, some guidance suggests that the next frontal passage will bring the coldest air mass yet for this Fall. More details to come.
