MIDWAY, Fl. (WTXL) -- Cooler air is on the way with the warmest temperatures of the week well past us. A major Arctic chill is expected to set up for the weekend with lows in the 30s. Before that, cold and rainy conditions are expected to persist for the next few days.
Wednesday: The warmest temperatures for most, if not all of us will have happened in the morning, with numbers in the mid to upper 60s. For the afternoon, after the passage of an Arctic cold front, temperatures will only go down due to the significance of the cold air, excess cloud cover and high rain coverage. Expect daytime temperatures to FALL to the mid and upper 50s.
Rain coverage will be around 70% with light rain likely and a few areas of moderate to heavier rain possible.
