MIDWAY, Fl. (WTXL) -- Irma continues to dominate weather headlines across the country, but our local forecast will turn cool and dry before any potential impact from the storm.
Wednesday: More moisture will be fed into the area as a cold front pushes through the Big Bend and South Georgia today. This will keep mornings warm and muggy with lows in the lower to mid 70s. In addition, rain coverage will be pretty high today (around 60%) as the cold front passes.
Highs are forecast to be in the lower to upper 80s. As the sun sets, winds are expected to turn out of the northwest, ushering in cooler and drier air.
Beach and Boating forecast information and your Wednesday Tide Times are below:
Thursday through Saturday: High pressure from the north will make the air nice and crisp with lower humidity and lower temperatures. Each day, lows are expected to fall into the 60s with highs in the mid to upper 80s. Skies are forecast to stay mainly clear with no rain expected.
Sunday into Monday: Winds may be quite breezy due to an indirect impact from Hurricane Irma. As of the latest model trends, it looks as if the Big Bend and South Georgia will NOT see a direct threat from Irma. That being said, there is still uncertainty in the forecast and preparations should STILL BE MADE. For now, expect lows near 70° with highs in the mid to upper 80s. Scattered showers/storms appear possible with breezy conditions throughout the day.
