Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Tampa Bay Ruskin FL 925 AM EDT Thu Jul 29 2021

UPDATE. Weak high pressure on the surface ridges over southwest Florida producing a very weak wind flow this morning. This is helping to keep the region in a warm and moist environment, which is apparent in the 12Z morning sounding showing light winds and a PWAT of 2.29 inches. This light wind and abundant moisture has led to another morning of slow moving showers and storms, primarily near the coast and over the gulf waters. The latest HRRR guidance has more showers and storms pushing over the coast later this morning and then farther inland this afternoon. Daytime highs in the upper 80's to low 90's combined with high humidities will lead to heat index values up to 103 degrees this afternoon. No significant changes needed for the current forecast.

AVIATION. The day has started off on the wet side once again. Current radar is holding SHRA and TSRA along the coast and over the gulf waters. Will hold VCTS at all terminals through around 22Z this evening. Winds will be out of the WSW at 10 knots of less, except in the vicinity of thunderstorms where gusty winds will be possible.

MARINE. It has been a very wet morning once again over the eastern gulf waters with most of the activity staying south of Tampa Bay.
