SARASOTA, Fla. (WWSB) -As we head towards night fall, we are tracking a line of potent storms moving along through The Gulf. This line of storms has seen so me intensification over the past hour as it races towards the Suncoast. Storms look to enter into Tampa Bay around 5-6 o’clock tonight and continue to push into Sarasota around 6 to 7 o’clock. Since these storms are closing in around sunset, they could lose some energy as they make their way into the coast. Main threats with this storms line would be the threat for damaging winds and heavy rain fall.

We catch a break in the storm action into early Sunday before the second, and stronger line of storms moves in. This line has potential to bring heavy rain to nearly everyone across the region, which is well needed. This line has a better chance at having strong to severe storms embedded in the line. Highest threat will continue to be damaging winds but the threat for an isolated tornado can not be ruled out. That line, currently, looks to move in after the noon hour on Sunday.
