Winds will pick up today as a storm system in the panhandle slowly inches down the state and due to arrive on the Suncoast tomorrow. Most of this Saturday will be at least mostly sunny and outdoor activities should be a delight.
We end the work week with a continuation of sunny skies and relatively dry air. No rain in the Friday forecast, but the wind will be increasing a bit in the afternoon. Changes begin Saturday as the pressure gradient across the Suncoast starts to tighten and winds pick up significantly
Dew points, the true measure of water vapor in the atmosphere, are slowly rising but still remain comfortable. However, by Friday or Saturday, most will notice the humidity rise as afternoons become sticky
The Suncoast will get several more days of low humidity and near seasonable temperatures. Our dew points are still in the 50′s, giving relative humidity that is dry enough that most everyone will find it comfortable
A very cool start to the morning with about a 20-degree drop in the temperature. Many reports of temperatures in the upper and mid 40′s inland and upper 40′s near the coast. These values are 10 degrees below the average
A cold front will arrive on the doorstep today and the exchange of warm air for cold air will kick up winds and all Suncoast marine activities will be impacted. By later this afternoon the wind speeds could exceed 20 to 25 mph sustained
Today is the last warm and humid day this week. HIghs will be in the mid 80′s in coastal communities and near 90 inland. The day will be humid but dry, with the exception of inland Hardee and DeSoto where showers and thunderstorms may develop late in the afternoon.
Yesterday’s cool front retreats as a warm front moves in. The Suncoast is kept in the warm and muggy air. Afternoon temperatures will climb to the mid-80s near the coastal communities with low 90s possible in inland communities
A cold front will sink south, lose energy, and stall. I will not trigger off a rain chance for us but will keep us in the clouds. The clouds will cut down on daytime heating and keep our high temperatures a few degrees below recent highs
Yesterday high-temperature records were broken in Fort Myers and Lakeland and today other Florida records will be in jeopardy. The warm weather will continue into the weekend with inland temperatures cracking the 90 mark
Skies were a bit clearer overnight and temperatures this morning started off a bit cooler as a result. A bit of patchy fog formed this morning, and with increasing humidity over the next few days, we can expect patchy fog for the next few mornings
Clouds will mix away this afternoon and skies will become mostly sunny. This will signal the building of high pressure over the Suncoast and a warming trend that will last for the foreseeable future, with only minor fluctuations
High pressure will build in from the west and a breezy northwest wind will drive in cooler and drier air. The dew points will fall this morning and that will bring about some cooler nighttime temperatures and allow for cooler evening temperatures
It will be another warm day on the Suncoast with temperatures this afternoon perhaps a degree or two warmer than yesterday. It will be breezy as well and the sea-breeze may start an hour or two later in the day and not reach as far inland
High pressure over the state will bring stable, warm, and dry weather to the Suncoast for the next few days. Beach lovers will enjoy sunny skies and a sea-breeze in the afternoon to keep temperatures limited to the upper 70′s
High pressure will build across the Suncoast today, and dry air will mix away the clouds. Sunny skies and a cool crisp north wind will make the afternoon comfortable and seasonable. Expect a high near 73, which is close to the average temperature for this time of year
Morning hours will feature a line of showers that will fall apart as it moves past us during drive-time into mid-morning. Rainfall amount will be generally light and by lunchtime, the rain chances will fall to near zero.
