SARASOTA, Fla. (WWSB) - This is the time of year we normally see cold fronts moving through every couple of weeks but not this crazy year of 2020.

A weak cold front will drift through the area late Friday and will not chill things out much. We will see only a slight increase in cloudiness late Friday along with a slight chance for showers mainly late afternoon and through the evening.
