First Alert Weather: Wind chills in the 30s are on the way
Cold weather

SARASOTA (WWSB) - Get ready for some cold weather. A cold front will move past in the afternoon and bring much drier and cooler air to the Suncoast.

Unlike many winter fronts this one will not produce any rain. It will however bring the winds. A breezy north wind will require caution due to increased risk of rip currents this afternoon and into tomorrow, especially on norther facing beaches. Additionally, a Small Craft Advisory will be in effect tonight into tomorrow.

The biggest impact for most people will be the wind chill you will feel tomorrow morning as winds combined with cooler temperatures and dry air will make it “feel like” it’s in the mid to upper 30s. No freeze will occur on the Suncoast.

Despite plenty of sunshine the highs for the next two days will only be in the 60s. Weekend temperatures will warm back into the 70s and skies will be mostly sunny. There is a very slight risk in seeing some light and isolated patches of brief showers over the weekend as a front stalls on Saturday and another moves past on Sunday but most of us stay dry. The Sunday cold front will again cause temperatures to dip into the 60s for the start of next work week.
