SARASOTA, Fla. (WWSB) - The Suncoast remains sandwiched between a high-pressure ridge in the Atlantic and a storm system moving to the Ohio Valley. The two weather features serve to direct a deep southerly flow of air over Florida. This will bring a breezy and gusty wind for several days and a Small Craft Exercise Caution statement has been issued for boaters. It is a warm flow of air and temperatures will remain well above the average, in the low 80′s. Both today and Saturday should remain rain-free, save for a very isolated possible sprinkle here or there into Saturday evening.
Overnight Saturday a cold front will approach the Suncoast. This front will be weakening as it gets closer to us but may produce a few stronger storms in north Florida before arriving here with only passing showers and sprinkles Sunday morning. By Sunday afternoon clearing will begin and cooler air starts moving in.
