SARASOTA, Fla. (WWSB) - Finally, some slightly lower humidity will be moving in after some sweltering days here to start the work week. We can say goodbye to the heat indices of 92-96 and hello to temperatures in the mid-to-upper 80s and it feeling like the same.

Expect to see some cloudiness around sunrise as the front will be slow to clear but by late morning skies will begin to clear out and winds pick up out of the north 15-20 mph. These winds will bring in some cooler temperatures under mostly sunny skies by noon.

Less humidity for Friday

Friday night will be very nice with pleasant conditions through the evening with clear skies and temperatures in the mid-70s by 9 p.m.

Saturday morning look for mostly sunny skies to start the day with temperatures in the mid-to-upper 60s. Should be a really nice start to the day. We will see a high in the mid-to-upper 80s and should still be quite comfortable with moderate humidity around. There is only a 10% chance for a passing shower. It will stay breezy throughout the day on Saturday with winds out of the northeast at 10-15 mph.

Sunday looks great with mostly sunny skies and a high of 88 degrees.

Monday winds will begin to switch around to the east-southeast which will slowly bring the humidity back up but still skies will stay generally sunny with highs in the upper 80s.

Tuesday we will see highs near 90 with a heat index in the low to mid-90s as the dewpoint or moisture content at the surface will get up there again. With a southeast wind expect a small chance for a few coastal showers and thunderstorms. It’s starting to look like we may begin to see our afternoon storms become a little more prevalent closer to the coast as the week gets longer next week.

For boaters on Friday look for winds out of the north at 15-20 knots and seas 2 to 3 feet and a moderate chop.
