SARASOTA, Fla. (WWSB) - We are in a transition time on the Suncoast with the wind pattern changing. Today we will see a light east wind that forms as the high pressure area that was sitting over us begins to lift north. With the east wind we get a better chance for showers closer to the coast as the sea-breeze is pinned closer to the coastline. Our rain chance will hold at about 30% today. The storms will start later in the day, after the full heating of the day has occurred. therefore the Heat Advisory is again in effect for the area from noon till 6 pm. As the atmosphere modifies a bit and moisture increases, our day time high will also be a few degrees warmer than yesterday.


The warm weather continues on for several days with highs in the mid 90′S. By early next week this will change a bit as temperatures drop into the lower 90′s The Saharan Dust in now in the Gulf and about 100 miles offshore. it will begin it’s pinwheel over the Deep South over the next few days and eventually reach highest concentrations over Florida by early next week.
