Dry to end to August - Rain returns September 1!!
SARASOTA, Fla. (WWSB) - We have a dry day to end August on the Suncoast. But we’re already tracking the first September rain for Wednesday, continuing Thursday and Friday. The clouds and rain potential keep our temperatures in the 80s for a cooler start to the month. A little drier air moves in for Labor Day weekend.
An isolated afternoon thunderstorm is still possible, but the weekend chances are on the lower side. There’s not much change to our red tide situation, but several beaches reported jellyfish on Monday.
We’re tracking two more potential storms in the Atlantic this morning. One coming off the African coast is likely to become Larry, but also stay in the Atlantic, And a weak area of storminess is in the southern Caribbean, but with only a 20% chance of developing for the next 5 days. Early September is the peak time for hurricane season, with September 10th the peak day for activity. We’ll keep a close eye on these storms as they push west across the Atlantic!
