MIDWAY, Fl. (WTXL) -- More heat and not so much in the way of rainfall until early next week. 90s still look likely through each afternoon this week.

Wednesday: After another cool to mild start for your Wednesday with lower 60s, expect daytime temperatures to quickly rise in response to the very warm air mass in place coupled with plentiful sunshine. Highs are once again expected to reach near or above 90°. Skies look to become progressively cloudier as the day moves along. Isolated shower activity can't be ruled out today (10% coverage).

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

Thursday and Friday: More of the same hot pattern is expected. High pressure will keep mornings clear, heating up the surface enough for afternoon clouds to pop up. Expect lows in the lower 60s with highs in the lower to mid 90s (warmer on Friday). As moisture in the air increases, the rising humidity will make it feel hotter.

Saturday and Sunday: More heat is expected for the weekend as high pressure stays relatively in control, coupled with rising moisture content. Expect lows in the lower to mid 60s with highs in the lower to mid 90s.

Mother's Day may bring a few showers as the moisture content grows, but coverage looks to be low (10%) at this time.

Monday and Tuesday: While uncertainty still exists for early next week, there are signs that higher rain coverage will eventually return as a tropical wave crosses Florida and slowly stalls over the state and the western Gulf of Mexico. This system may fling more in the way of showers/storms toward us on Monday and Tuesday, with the highest coverage so far on Tuesday (20% on Monday and 40% on Tuesday). Expect lows in the UPPER 60s with highs in the upper 80s to lower 90s.

You can catch the forecast on ABC 27 News starting at 5:00 each weekday morning, as well as ABC 27 News at Noon. First Alert Chief Meteorologist Casanova Nurse has your forecast at 5:00, 5:30, 6:00, and 11:00 this evening.
