A cold front moves in Wednesday
Tropics getting active again
SARASOTA, Fla. (WWSB) - This time of year cold fronts usually move through and bring a chill but this next one will not have much of a punch behind it. We will see beautiful weather on Tuesday with mostly sunny skies and just a few clouds later in the day. Temperatures will be in the mid 60s to start the day and warm up into the low to mid 80s by mid afternoon. There is no chance for any significant rain on Tuesday.
Wednesday we will see partly cloudy skies as a weak cold front begins to move in. The timing of this front will be later in the afternoon and through the early evening. The trough that is driving this front isn’t all that strong so don’t expect to see a big drop in temperatures behind it. We will see a slight chance for a few passing showers as the front moves through later in the day. That rain chance is only 30% north and 20% chance further south. Winds will pick up out of the WSW at 10-15 mph out ahead of the front. High temperatures on Wednesday will be in the low 80s.
Thursday expect mostly sunny skies once again with a high of 85 which is normal for this time of year. Friday will be nice as well with fairly typical weather for late October with highs in the mid 80s and lows in the mid to upper 60s.
Another weak cold front tries to slide through over the weekend but once again falls short of really bringing any significant changes to our weather. We should see mostly sunny skies and highs in the low to mid 80s.
In the tropics we continue to monitor 2 areas in the Atlantic. One near the Bahamas is going to mill around over the next couple of days. It only has a 30% chance for development over the next 5 days. Even if it does it should stay away from Florida. The other area of concern is over the Bahamas and looks to become a sub-tropical storm or depression over the next couple of days. Even if it were to develop it would move north or northeast away from Florida. The GFS forecast model has consistently been developing a storm in the eastern Caribbean over the last several runs. It is important to note that the EURO hasn’t showed anything at this time.
