SARASOTA, Fla. (WWSB) - A weak cold front will finally work it’s way into the Suncoast after spending days stuck over the Deep South. It has a history of severe weather but it will have none of that strength as it moves through here. In fact, we will be lucky if it produces significant rainfall.

Rain chances will be distributed across the Suncoast with about 20% near the coast, 30% inland, and 40% in Hardee and DeSoto counties. Models continue to indicate a slight chance in the mid-morning hours and much better odds in the afternoon. The front will pass by this evening leaving us with clearing skies overnight and a breezy, drier wind tomorrow.

There might be enough moisture around tomorrow to bring the slightest chance for isolated sprinkles or a quick shower in the morning, but expect clearing by day and sunny skies developing. The winds will become breezy enough that boaters might need a little extra caution.
