MIDWAY, Fl. (WTXL) -- We're still looking at a similar weather pattern from earlier this week to continue for midweek before a slightly drier trend this weekend.
Wednesday and Thursday: High pressure will continue to steer in winds from the east/northeast, keeping us pretty warm. Moisture in the air will help support the chance of storms each afternoon for this period. Mornings will continue to be mild and humid, with temperatures starting off in the lower to mid 70s. Afternoon conditions will be pretty standard for early September, with highs near or above 90 degrees. Humidity may make it feel more like the mid to upper 90s each day. Scattered showers and thunderstorms are possible in the afternoons, with rain coverage at around 40-50%.
Wednesday Marine and Beach forecast information and your Wednesday Tide Times are below:
Friday into the weekend: At this point in time, Hurricane Florence will likely be over the Carolinas, stalling and bringing torrential rains to the states. For our area, we'll likely be influenced by a north wind on Florence's west side. That north wind will keep us somewhat drier and hotter. Expect morning lows to be in the lower to mid 70s, afternoon highs to be in the lower to mid 90s, with rain coverage lower (20%).
Early next week: Models continue to show uncertainty with Florence's movement next week. The storm will likely be a tropical depression or remnant low, but it may drift south toward us. If this happens, strengthening is not expected, but rain coverage may increase. Still, with uncertainty in this picture, the forecast will not be too aggressive with rain potential. For now, expect lows in the lower to mid 70s, highs in the lower 90s, with isolated showers/storms possible (30% coverage).
