SARASOTA, Fla. (WWSB) - High pressure dominates the weather this week and will direct our weather out of a generally north direction. Additionally, another shot of dry air will surge into the area today. The dry air surge is due to a cool front that will be so weak that you will have a difficult time even noting its arrival. It will, however, drop the dew point a few degrees. That should be enough to allow the overnight temperatures to fall just a degree or two below this morning’s low. But in the end, high pressure wins and you can expect mostly sunny skies for the next few days.
On Thursday you’ll notice slightly more cloud cover streaming in from Gulf waters. This will be due to another cool front moving in overnight Thursday into Friday morning. There will be a small chance for showers with this frontal passage but the chance is low, at 20%. It will once again reinforce the high-pressure area that will bring a lovely, but cooler weekend. Highs on Saturday will be in the low 60′s.
