Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Tampa Bay Ruskin FL 648 AM EST Wed Feb 19 2020

AVIATION. Widespread MVFR ceilings with a few locations still expected to receive MVFR visibility as well. While thicker coverage of showers are remaining just off the coast of West Central FL, all terminals have the potential to receive a brief shower or two through 15Z. West to northwest winds around 5-7 knots this afternoon. Low clouds and some fog are possible once again late tonight into tomorrow morning, especially across southern TAF sites.

Prev Discussion. /issued 340 AM EST Wed Feb 19 2020/

DISCUSSION . Broad upper level troughing will continue to spread across eastern Canada and the US today while mid level ridging holds south of Florida. At the surface, Atlantic high pressure is ridging west across the Florida Peninsula, but will shift east today and tonight as a cold front associated with the upper level trough starts to push southeast towards Florida. A relatively humid airmass ahead of this front is already starting to contribute to a few showers and sprinkles, and model guidance is in good agreement that these showers will continue through at least the morning, and it would not be surprising to see some showers persisting through the afternoon. Otherwise, this humid airmass will help fuel some patchy fog that will burn off by mid morning. Temperatures will remain unseasonably warm today, with highs in the mid 80s over the interior.

Thursday and Thursday night, a shortwave on the back end of the upper level trough will help sweep the cold front into the Florida Peninsula, with isolated to scattered showers possible along and ahead of the front. Breezy north and northeast winds behind the front will begin to quickly drop temperatures Thursday night through Friday night. Highs on Friday will range from the upper 50s over parts of the Nature Coast, to the low 70s over southwest Florida. Continued cold air advection Friday night will drop temperatures into the mid to upper 30s over the Nature Coast, with 40s and low 50s to the south by Saturday morning. High pressure filling in behind the front this weekend will turn winds to easterly and allow temperatures to quickly moderate, getting back to a few degrees above normal by Sunday afternoon.

Another shortwave will lift east from the southern Plains through the Mid Atlantic early next week, steering another cold front through the Gulf Coast Monday and Tuesday. Low level winds will turn to southerly ahead of this front, advecting warm and humid air back into the Florida Peninsula. This will allow temperatures to continue to climb above normal and help fuel isolated to scattered showers.

MARINE . High pressure ridging from the Atlantic into the eastern Gulf of Mexico will shift east today and Thursday as a cold front approaches from the northwest. Patchy sea fog will be possible, mostly over the Gulf waters north of Tampa Bay. The front will bring chances of showers late Thursday through Friday morning, as well as increasing northeast winds behind the front. Small Craft Advisory level winds will set in by Thursday evening, and are expected to last until Saturday morning as high pressure builds in behind the front. Winds and seas will hold around cautionary levels through at least Saturday night as conditions gradually improve.

FIRE WEATHER . Patchy fog will burn off by mid morning today, and will be possible again late tonight into Thursday morning. Relative humidity will remain well above critical levels through the week.

In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
