SARASOTA, Fla. (WWSB) - Hurricane Dorian continues to lift to the northwest, just offshore of Florida’s East Coast.

Heavy rain will fall on that coast Wednesday and surf will be elevated. But on our coast, we’ll see breezy conditions, prompting Small Craft and Rip Current advisories. The breezy conditions will likely begin to subside by Friday as Dorian continues to move away.

Though it sounds counter-intuitive, Dorian is pulling dry air into the Suncoast. We’ll have fair skies for the next four or five days and rain chances will diminish to next to nothing. Our heat index will respond by climbing to 105-107 degrees.
