SARASOTA, Fla. (WWSB) - Winds will pick up overnight and into the day tomorrow. A Small Craft Advisory has been issued. These winds are the result of a tightening pressure field caused by an approaching storm system. While this storm will bring severe weather to the Deep South on Saturday, its impact on Suncoast Weather will be minimal. Only a windy day, some higher humidity due to shifting south winds, and a slight chance of a Sunday morning shower will result. It will be a warm Saturday with heat indexes in the upper 80′s closer to the coast and low 90′s well east of the interstate. It is possible that a few showers or an isolated thunderstorm could form late in the day, in far inland locations.

First Alert Weather - 6pm April 23, 2021

The before mentioned storm system will drag a cold front through Florida and a line of showers will form in north-central Florida. This line will weaken as the system approaches the Suncoast on Sunday morning. Very little rain is likely to fall and the precipitation chance is only 20%. The front will move past in the afternoon and scour out the clouds in the late afternoon. The humidity will then decrease.
