Now get ready for the cold

Below average temperatures through the weekend

First Alert Weather - 4pm February 26, 2020

SARASOTA, Fla. (WWSB) - The winds will pick up behind the cold front on Thursday and bring a chill to the Suncoast once again.

We will see some cloudiness to start the day as strong NW winds at 15-20 mph pick up some Gulf moisture and turn it into some low clouds or stratocumulus clouds. Skies should turn mostly sunny later in the day but that won’t warm things up too much.

Thursday we start off cool with temperatures in the mid 50′s. The highs will be in the upper 50′s to low 60′s. With winds staying strong it will feel even cooler.

Thursday night and Friday morning will be chilly with clear skies and lows in the mid 40′s to start the day on Friday. Look for plenty of sunshine on Friday with a high in the mid 60′s.

Saturday expect mostly sunny skies with highs still below average in the upper 60′s. Late Saturday another weak cold front will move through but will do so without much fanfare as it will not have much moisture to work with.

It will bring a chill Sunday morning as lows will once again be in the mid 40′s to start the day but warm to the low 70′s by the afternoon.

By Monday winds switch around to the ESE which will tend to warm us back up above average. The average high is 75 degrees and low is 55. The high on Monday will be 78 and in the low 80′s Tuesday and Wednesday.
