SARASOTA, Fla. (WWSB) - Say goodbye to the 80s for at least the next 7 days. Temperatures will stay below average through early next week. Now Thanksgiving looks to be really nice with lows in the mid 50s and then warm into the mid 70s. That is still below average which is 79 for a high and 59 for a low. Another rather dry cold front moves through on Friday chilling things out for the weekend with highs only in the low 70s both Saturday and Sunday.
