SARASOTA, Fla. (WWSB) - It will feel more like winter to start the first full day of astronomical spring. Temperatures will be some 10-15 degrees below the average for this time of year. The average low is 59 degrees and we will see temperatures in the mid to upper 40′s to start things off on Tuesday. So grab the jackets as you head out the door Tuesday morning.

We will see mostly sunny skies through the day with winds out of the north to northeast at 10-20 mph to start and those winds will quickly switch around to the ENE by the day’s end and will subside somewhat. It will be a much warmer afternoon than Monday with highs topping out into the mid to upper 70s as opposed to the mid 60s we experienced on Monday.

Wednesday will be beautiful with mostly sunny skies and it will be much warmer to start the day. We wake up to 60 degree temps. and warm into the upper 70s to low 80s by early afternoon. This beautiful weather will continue through Friday with temperatures near average with highs near 80 and lows near 60 degrees.

There is a small chance for a shower or two this Saturday as a weak cold front begins to approach from the NW late in the day.
