Isolated afternoon storms - Until Thursday!
SARASOTA, Fla. (WWSB) - Typical August weather continues through Wednesday, with a few pop-up afternoon storms. Then Thursday, a weak low pressure moves over Florida, which means more widespread storms are likely. By Friday and into the weekend we’re back to the hit-and-miss afternoon storms.
Monday’s storms were minimal but still gave us 0.33 of an inch of rain around Lakewood Ranch.
We have more possibilities in the tropics developing. We’re tracking three areas that might develop before the end of August. The one with the best chance of developing is near the coast of Central America, which would most likely affect the southern Gulf of Mexico. We are nearing the peak of tropical storm season, which is Sept. 11. Stay tuned!
