First Alert Weather: Isolated coastal showers move inland by afternoon

  • 0

SARASOTA, FL (WWSB) - The area of low pressure in the Gulf that has produced unseasonably wet weather has lifted north, weakened and is now over north Florida and about to be absorbed by an approaching front.

The upshot of that pattern is a southwest wind and less of a trigger in the atmosphere for thunderstorms.

The southwest wind will promote a few showers near the coast in the morning and better rain chances for east moving storms building inland over the afternoon.

By the weekend the rain chances will increase for us as high pressure in the Atlantic builds and our winds become increasingly southeasterly. This will favor showers and thunderstorms building inland that will drift toward the coast.
