Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Tampa Bay Ruskin FL 352 AM EDT Thu Jul 9 2020

SHORT TERM. As an area of low pressure continues to propagate off to the NE just off the coast of the Mid-Atlantic states, light synoptic flow remains over the FL peninsula with a strong ridge across the desert SW. This upper-level ridge is reinforcing surface high pressure over the central Gulf of Mexico. Anticyclonic (clockwise) flow around the high is leading to WNW winds across West Central and Southwest Florida, continuing to advect surface moisture from the Gulf across the state. While not a textbook case of climatological norms for this time of year, this sort of pattern will continue to favor coastal showers and, perhaps, a couple isolated thunderstorms in the morning hours. The deepest moisture is situated across our northern coastal waters and Lee and Citrus county. As such, the greatest chance for storms early will be along the Nature Coast. However, the flow is conducive for storms and subsequent moisture to drift further southward, so points near the coast all the way down to Tampa Bay will have a chance to see a few showers and thunderstorms through the morning hours. As the day progresses, rain chances shift inland as daytime heating promotes more widespread destabilization across the interior. These storms should move off to the ESE and exit our area late in the afternoon to early evening.

With temperatures remaining generally in the 90s, a very moist airmass (dewpoints in the mid-70s), and only modest rain chances across our area today, heat indices will most certainly climb into the triple digits. Today's setup favors heat indices climbing above 108 for many of our counties, prompting the need for a Heat Advisory for part of the area for the afternoon hours. If spending any prolonged periods of time outdoors today, remember to take precautions to protect yourself from heat exhaustion and heat stroke.

LONG TERM. We will have to continue to monitor this pattern over the coming days, too. Westerly flow will continue to bring a similar setup each afternoon into the middle of next week, with subtle changes. While the ridge builds today, a weak trough axis will begin to take shape on Friday, causing heights to fall slightly across the Florida peninsula as early as late tomorrow. This will provide an environment conducive for ascent across the parts of the peninsula. Unfortunately, shower and thunderstorm activity will generally remain on the fringes of our area during the afternoon. Heat indices will continue to be on the edge of Heat Advisory criteria for the next few days during the afternoon hours.

There is some hope on the horizon, however. Southwest flow should return late in the weekend, increasing the rain chances for Sunday and Monday. This WSW flow should persist into the middle of next week before, at last, the subtropical high builds back over the peninsula, and easterly flow may return at the very end of the forecast period. Scattered showers and thunderstorms will again be most likely in the afternoon to evening hours across our area, a welcome change from the pattern we have found ourselves in for the last few weeks.

AVIATION. VFR conditions prevail with surface high pressure situated off to the West. Some coastal showers (possibly thunderstorms) may form near the coast through the morning hours and drift towards KTPA, KPIE. Rain chances shift inland as the day progresses, keeping coastal terminals dry for the afternoon. KLAL could still see showers or thunderstorms lasting into the afternoon before all sites return to dry conditions with light flow overnight.

MARINE. Outside of some coastal showers early each day, overall conditions remain benign for coastal waters over the next few days with high pressure off to the West leading to westerly flow.

FIRE WEATHER. Fire weather concerns remain low for the next several days as high pressure remains in control, leading to westerly winds, coastal showers early that shift inland, and plenty of moisture to keep RH values well above critical thresholds.
