SARASOTA, Fla. (WWSB) - Models are a bit scattered with regards to the timing and location of weekend rains but there is consistency in developing a Gulf low that will up the rain chances. The timing for the possibility of heavier rain is still centered on late Saturday and into Sunday. If the focus of rain shifts a little further to the south, we could see over one-inch rains during that window of time. Showers may linger into Sunday afternoon. The forecast will be refined over the next 24 hours as models come into better agreement.

Warm and humid weather continues into the next 7 to 10 days. The morning air remains nearly saturated and we will watch for the possibility of fog tomorrow morning. Down the road, some long-range models hint at cooler weather in 10 to 12 days.
