area forecast discussion... Updated
national weather service tampa bay ruskin fl
948 am est Sat feb 24 2018

Update
Another hot february day is expected with more record high
temps possible as high pressure continues to control the
weather across west central and SW florida. Upper-ridge will
keep things fairly dry and stable aloft but closer to the
surface looks to be just enough moisture in place for a few
low-topped showers to develop in the afternoon. Current
forecast handles this well so no changes needed for the
evening update.

Aviation
Vfr prevails although patchy and shallow br may briefly drop
vsby into MVFR ifr near dawn. Sct CU becomes sct-bkn during
the afternoon along with isold shra forming along the sea
breeze... But with little impact at the terminals.

Marine
High pressure across the area from the atlantic will slowly
shift south as a front moves into north florida Monday then
dissipates Tuesday over central florida. High pressure
builds in from the north by midweek. Winds will be no more
than 15 knots with seas 2 feet or less.

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerious of sources and is presented automatically. It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
