Thursday will be another day with an east wind blowing the hottest air to our side of the state, and also keeping our sea breeze pinned near the coast. This is a combination that leads to very hot, dry conditions for our area this time of year.
Unfortunately, we won’t have a lot of moisture in the atmosphere again, so it will be dry with only a tiny chance of a late day shower from Manatee County southward. Highs will easily top out in the mid 90s, with some spots in the upper 90s, likely breaking records again.
Friday will wrap up the week with the same hot conditions. The highs will top out in the mid 90s near record highs.
The difference however will be that atmospheric moisture will start increasing that evening, and we’ll finally get a few scattered storms. The chance will be limited to about 30 percent of the area, but at least it’s a welcome change.
The weekend looks more like a summer pattern with scattered storms coming into the area.
