SARASOTA, Fla. (WWSB) - Drier air is in place on the Suncoast will limit the rain chances. A wave of tropical moisture will glide into South Florida Saturday and slightly increase our rain chance. But even so, the rain chance will only be 20% and most of us will not see showers. Skies will be mostly sunny and relative humidity will be low for this time of year.
