First Alert Weather: A Cloudy Start to Easter Weekend


A weakening cold front is bringing lots of clouds to the Suncoast as we move into the Passover-Easter weekend. While the front will mainly wash out as it moves by, there is a 20 to 30 percent chance we could see showers from its passage, and from the lingering moisture over the state. 

The front is predicted to stall out over South Florida, leaving abundant moisture in place that could form into afternoon and evening showers or thundershowers on both Saturday and Sunday.

Even with the ample clouds we think will be around on Saturday, it should still be a decent beach day. But we won't have the best conditions for boating until winds and waves calm down on Sunday.

Once the air over Florida dries out on Monday, we will enter an extended period of fair and seasonably warm weather that should last through at least the first week of April.
