MANATEE -- The hot, humid weather pattern in Manatee County will continue for the next several days, according to Bay News 9 meteorologist Diane Kacmarik.
"We have this reverse summertime pattern in play, and what that means is we have some showers on our side of the state in the morning and those moved over to the other side of the state in the afternoon and the evening," she said. "That's opposed to our typical late-day storms on the west coast."
Breezy west winds will continue through Sunday. Deep onshore flow has allowed small fast-moving showers and storms to start in the Gulf and move east across the state, she said.
The National Weather Service projects a high of 90 degrees Sunday with a lot of 78 at night. Temperatures will stay around normal with heat indices from 95-101. A cold front in the Southeast United States will slide south into extreme north Florida to increase rain chances Sunday and especially Monday.
