Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Tampa Bay Ruskin FL 1003 AM EDT Mon Mar 30 2020

UPDATE. Another warm and dry day on tap with near record max temps and light winds. No changes to the ongoing forecast.

AVIATION . VFR conditions through the day with a mix of mid-high clouds and light winds.

Prev Discussion. /issued 341 AM EDT Mon Mar 30 2020/

DISCUSSION . Mid level ridging centered over the FLorida Peninsula and the Bahamas this morning will gradually weaken today and Tuesday as a shortwave trough crosses the southern US. At the surface, Atlantic high pressure ridging across the Florida Peninsula today will shift southeast tonight and Tuesday as the surface reflection of the shortwave trough pushes into the southeastern US. The stacked ridging will keep warm and stable conditions in place today and into Tuesday, with temperatures running well above normal again today, then dropping a few degrees by Tuesday afternoon as the subsidence weakens.

The surface low will drag a cold front across the Gulf of Mexico Tuesday and Tuesday night, with chances of showers and a few storms increasing over the Nature Coast and adjacent Gulf waters Tuesday afternoon, then expanding south across the rest of the forecast area Tuesday night. High pressure will fill in behind the front by Wednesday morning with rain free conditions returning. Warm and stable conditions will hold through Friday, with temperatures running near to a couple degrees above normal.

An upper level disturbance will pass east over Florida during the weekend, bringing more chances for rain at any point from Friday night through Sunday.

MARINE . High pressure will continue to ridge into the eastern Gulf of Mexico through Tuesday, with light winds and slight seas continuing. A weak cold front will push southeast into the waters Tuesday night and Wednesday, with increasing chances of rain and wind speeds building to near cautionary levels. High pressure will build back in from the north Wednesday night and Thursday, allowing winds to subside again.

FIRE WEATHER . Relative humidity percentages will drop into the upper 30s this afternoon, mainly over the interior, but red flag conditions are not expected. Humidity will begin to increase on Tuesday. Light winds today will keep dispersion indices low, then breezier winds Tuesday will lead to some spots seeing high dispersions. Patchy fog will be possible both mornings.

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.
