SARASOTA, Fla. (WWSB) - The forecast over the weekend will be determined how close the center of Isaias will get to Central Florida.

Out ahead of the cyclone we can expect some drying as air subsides out ahead of the storm. This will limit the rain to only 30% for some late day showers and isolated thunderstorms moving quickly to the east southeast.
