First Alert Weather: Relief from the hot and dry conditions will eventually come

SARASOTA, Fla. (WWSB) - For this Sunday evening and into the overnight, expect muggy/dry conditions once again. Winds will be light out of the west, and the overnight low will drop into the mid to upper 70′s. No showers or storms are expected, due to plenty of dry air aloft.

For Monday, it’ll be pretty much the same as what we experienced on Sunday... sunny, hot, muggy, and dry. The highs should top out in the low 90′s, but the feel like temperatures will once again climb up into the low 100′s.

It has been bone dry for several days now, so when will the Suncoast receive some much needed relief? Well, a change is about to come our way, to help to break down this stubborn dry weather pattern we’ve been experiencing. And this change should come as soon as this next Tuesday, and continue into Wednesday, Thursday, and even Friday as well!

The pattern that we’ve been experiencing lately, (a strong ridge of high pressure over Florida and the southeast), will eventually weaken and break down, allowing more moisture to infiltrate back into Florida, which will set the stage for a more typical Florida summer like pattern. And with a few rounds of mini troughs, or otherwise known as “short waves”, tracking into the area, we can expect more widespread showers and storms to develop, which should help put a dent into our dry spell. It will also help to “slightly” cool down our day time highs... which I’m sure will be well received.

Have a fantastic rest of your weekend everyone, and stay cool! Rain relief is just around the corner.
