SARASOTA, Fla. (WWSB) - Don’t expect too much from this “cold” front as it will only drop temperatures a couple of degrees through Saturday morning. It will make it feel a little more comfortable as humidity values will drop which will get rid of the oppressive heat indices we’ve seen lately.

Thursday we wake up to temperatures in the mid-70s for most along with some clouds moving in out ahead of the front. We will see some peeks of the sun but generally mostly cloudy skies are expected. It will still be warm with a high around 88 degrees. Winds out of the west at 5 mph to start the day followed by northwest winds 10-15 mph by the afternoon. There will be a few scattered showers and a very small chance for an isolated thunderstorm.

Friday starts off nice with lower humidity. Lows will be in the upper 60s to low 70s Friday morning and warm to the mid-80s by the early afternoon. We can say goodbye to the mid-90s feels like temperatures for a little while anyway. Skies will be mostly sunny on Friday with no threat of any rainfall. It will be breezy with winds out of the east-northeast at 10-15 mph.

Saturday will be nice with temperatures starting off in the mid-60s and warming into the mid-to-upper 80s for the afternoon. It will still be a bit breezy on Saturday with winds out of the northeast at 10 to 15 mph and gusts near 20 later in the day.

Sunday expect mostly sunny skies and highs in the upper 80s to low 90s for inland counties.

For boaters look for winds out of the north at 5 to 10 knots to start the day and then pick up out of the northwest at 10-15 knots later in the afternoon.
