SARASOTA, Fla. (WWSB) -Dew points, the true measure of water vapor in the atmosphere, are slowly rising but still remain comfortable. However, by Friday or Saturday, most will notice the humidity rise as afternoons become sticky.

If you have not been running the air conditioner you may decide to turn it on by the weekend just to remove some moisture from the air. The increase in humidity will occur due to a wind shift that will draw air up out of the south. The wind shift will be in response to our fair weather high pressure area moving into the Atlantic as the next front approaches from the west.

As the next front approaches from the west on Saturday, we will get breezy. The front will stall to our north and bits of energy will ride along it like boxcars on a railroad track. This will increase our rain chances starting on Sunday and again on Tuesday as another front approaches.
