SARASOTA, Fla. (WWSB) - Much cooler air is on the way for the Suncoast with a one-two punch of successive cold fronts. With the month on the way to being in the top one or two hottest Octobers on record and the long range winter outlook for a warmer winter than normal, many will enjoy the cooler weather. Starting as early as tomorrow the first front will approach and sink south of us overnight. The front may trigger a few showers in the late evening and overnight but by drive-time tomorrow morning the roads should be dry. Tomorrow’s day time high temperature will be almost 10 degrees cooler and much less humid. Over the weekend the temperatures will start to climb once again, but the humidity will still be lower.
