SARASOTA, Fla. (WWSB) - A significant cold front moves through today, shifting winds to the north and bringing in the coldest air of the season so far. Morning showers will clear early and, after a very brief clearing, clouds will build along the coast as cold air over warm waters forms cold air clouds that hug the coast. A few of the clouds will bring a sprinkle or two but no more. The most noticeable aspect of the forecast will be the cooler temperatures that arrive this afternoon. After a very brief bump up in the temperatures mid-morning, the cool northwest wind will drop temperatures into the mid 60′s this afternoon. Overnight the temperatures will continue to fall and winds will lighten up. Tomorrow morning most locations will be in the mid to upper 40′s, warmer near the coast and cooler inland.
Tomorrow will be even cooler but then, by mid-week, we will warm a bit. I say a bit because it will still be below average with highs in the low to mid 70′s. By the end of the workweek temperatures will return to near normal. Another, much weaker front will bring a chance for a shower on Saturday.
