SARASOTA, Fla. (WWSB) - Dry air aloft will still limit the number of potential showers that might form later today. The most likely location for storms will be in inland locations, east of the interstate, after the sea-breeze forms late in the day. There is also a smaller chance for a coastal shower to lift out of the south and into southern coastal locations. Rain chances will be small, in the 10% to 20% range from coast to inland. Tomorrow will see a much better rain chance as deep tropical moisture returns. High pressure in the Atlantic will direct mid-level winds out of the south as the low in the Carolina’s begins to move away. This will allow enough moisture to return to bring afternoon rain chances to 50% to 60%.

Over the weekend high pressure will build in and create an environment less favorable for thunderstorms. Rain chances will still be higher than they have been recently, due to the heat and increased humidity, but less than we will see on Thursday and Friday. First day of summer arrives at 5:44 pm on Saturday, and, of course, Fathers Day on Sunday.
