Another cold front arrives Tuesday

First Alert Weather - 6:00pm December 13, 2019

SARASOTA, Fla. (WWSB) - Although the chance for severe weather is small it is still enough for concern here along the Suncoast. We will see several factors coming together at the right time to produce a few isolated thunderstorms and of these storms one or two could turn severe.

The timing of the strong storms will be during the overnight hours with the strongest projected to be here from 5 a.m. through 9 a.m. Saturday morning.

We could still see some showers and isolated thunderstorms before that time frame but the thinking is that the rough weather will be here a couple of hours before sunrise.

Now is a good time to remind everyone to download our free First Alert Weather app. This app is one I recommend not because it’s ours but because it alerts you to severe weather and potential dangers fast. On top of that The First Alert weather team can bring you 30 second video updates through the app to let you know of impending dangers. It’s like having a meteorologist at your disposal in the palm of your hand anytime severe weather threatens.
