FIRST ALERT WEATHER: Dry Until Next Year

High pressure building over Florida this weekend will bring temperatures down to near normal or slightly below normal, but skies should be mostly sunny each day.

Drier air behind a cold front leaving South Florida will allow temperatures to drop to near or slightly cooler than normal this weekend.

Another cool front is predicted to pass by Sunday afternoon, but we will still manage to warm to near 70 degrees before the cool air arrives just in time for New Year's Eve celebrations.  The current forecast calls for temperatures across the Suncoast to be in the upper 50s to near 70 degrees as we ring in the New Year.

Another front and low pressure area will spread over the area later on Monday, bringing rain and even cooler weather for the opening days of 2018.

7-Day Forecast

It will remain dry and seasonably mild until unsettled and cooler sets in with the New Year.

Further cool waves will eventually drop our overnight lows into the 40s by Thursday and Friday, with daytime highs several degrees cooler than normal as well.
