SARASOTA, Fla. (WWSB) -The upper air disturbance that encouraged strong thunderstorms yesterday is departing today and the surface cold front will sink south, stall and wash out. Behind the weak front some drier air will move in and rain will give way to sunnier skies. Temperatures will be held down by the southwest wind blowing over the waters that are in the upper 70′s. We get a few morning showers before this transition takes place but the afternoon will feature dry skies and sunshine. Tomorrow will be a dry and sunny day from start to finish.
Moisture begins to return on Thursday and by Friday we set up a summertime like pattern with warmer temperatures and afternoon, sea breeze generated, showers and thunderstorms. This will be the kind of weather Floridians are accustomed to in the summer. Sunny to start, building afternoon clouds and then showers and thunderstorms building inland and drifting back to the coast as they die out.
