MIDWAY, Fl. (WTXL) -- A drier trend in the weather will soon take shape after Wednesday but it will not last long at all. By the weekend, more moisture in the air returns, with typical Summer storm coverage returning as well.

Wednesday: The morning starts with mild and mainly clear conditions. Morning lows are generally in the 70s. A stray morning shower is possible. Afternoon high temperatures are expected to reach the lower 90s. As a cold front starts to push through the area, it will bring in some drier air to the region. This drier trend will first begin for SW Georgia counties in the afternoon. The front may slow down as it passes and because some of the region may still be under warm, moist, and unstable conditions, showers and storms are still possible later today (30% overall coverage). The highest chance for rain will be over counties in the Suwannee Valley.

Wednesday Marine and Beach forecast information and your Wednesday Tide Times are below:

Thursday: Drier air will help keep most of the region very dry, with rain coverage forecast to be at 10% or less. Expect morning lows in the lower 70s (some upper 60s possible), with afternoon highs still in the lower 90s. The drier air will keep the humidity to a more comfortable level.

Friday: Moisture content in the air will start to increase ahead of the weekend, promoting a higher chance for rainfall. Expect lows in the lower 70s, highs in the lower 90s, and rain coverage are around 20-30%.

This weekend: A typical Summer set-up is expected to return with scattered to numerous afternoon showers and storms possible in the afternoons for both Saturday and Sunday (50% coverage). Expect morning lows in the lower to mid 70s and afternoon highs in the lower 90s.

Early next week: Similar conditions to the weekend are expected for early next week with lows in the lower to mid 70s, highs in the lower 90s, and rain coverage scattered in nature (40-50%).
