First Alert Weather - 6:00pm June 17, 2020

SARASOTA, Fla. (WWSB) - After a few days of lower than average humidity and storm coverage here along the Suncoast we are going to get back to it on Thursday.

The storm system which was sending dry air our way is slipping away to the north and the tropical air mass will move in and stick around through Saturday.

On Sunday, Father’s day some slightly drier air will move in again but not as dry as the air we’ve seen over the past few days. It will bring the rain chances down to 30% so Dad’s will have some nice weather to get out and enjoy.
