MIDWAY, Fl. (WTXL) -- Another day with near record-breaking warmth is expected before an expected cool-down occurs for the remainder of the week. A more significant cool-down is forecast for early next week.

Wednesday: A cold front is expected to push through the region today, but before it passes, warm and humid air will still be around due to warm southerly winds still in place early on.

The morning starts with lows in the lower 70s. The afternoon is expected to be very warm and humid, with highs forecast to be near 90 degrees (record heat for Tallahassee). Rain coverage will be isolated as the front passes (30% coverage). Once it passes, cooler and drier air will start to filter in.

Wednesday Marine forecast information is below:

Thursday and Friday: The cold front will stall just south of the Big Bend of Florida, keeping a small rain chance in play through the end of the work week. Expect a cooler period for temperatures with lows in the mid 60s and highs in the upper 70s to lower 80s. Rain coverage is forecast to be around 20%.

Saturday: A stronger cold front is expected to move into the region, bringing more rain possibilities and a colder air mass behind it. Saturday rain coverage is forecast to be around 50% with lows near 70 degrees and highs in the mid 80s. 

Sunday: Early morning rain is possible as the front passes south (20% coverage). Lows will likely be in the 60s and afternoon highs are forecast to be in the mid 70s.

Monday and Tuesday: Colder temperatures will move in with temperatures in the lower to mid 50s in the mornings. Afternoon highs will likely stay in the 70s with partly to mostly cloudy skies. Tuesday may bring some rain chances with the possibility of a new frontal system arriving.
