Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Tampa Bay Ruskin FL 304 AM EDT Fri Apr 3 2020

SHORT TERM (Today - Saturday). High pressure surface and aloft over the eastern U.S. will maintain pleasant dry weather across the entire forecast area through the period with clear to partly cloudy skies. Temperatures will continue to moderate with overnight lows in the lower 60s and daytime highs around 80 along the coast and lower 80s inland today, then warming into the lower 80s along the coast, and mid and upper 80s inland on Saturday.

LONG TERM (Saturday night - Thursday). Mid level ridging anchored over the Gulf of Mexico sprawls northward across the southern plains-Deep South-southeast U.S. through midweek. Then the ridging begins to flatten as a broad mid level low tracks across Ontario and over southern Quebec. Surface high pressure down the eastern seaboard to the eastern Gulf of Mexico and FL shifts offshore then drops south. This high pressure eventually reaches the Atlantic waters east of the Bahamas while continuing to stretch across FL to the Gulf. The axis of this high slips south of the state by Thu as a diffuse frontal boundary moves into the southeastern states.

For the most part deep ridging dominates with stable dry air and temperatures above normal . with highs near 90 by mid week. There are two exceptions . a short wave trough tracking along the Gulf coast and over north FL provides a slight chance of showers Sun. The second exception is Wed-Thu when another short wave trough along with the boundary to the north support a slight chance of showers Light to gentle east and southeast winds. with afternoon sea breezes . gradually become southwest and west.

AVIATION. VFR will prevail during the next 24 hours with an increase in high clouds aoa 150. Northeast to east winds in the 5 to 10 knot range will prevail, except becoming onshore at the coastal sites after 18Z with the sea breeze component. Light and variable winds will return after 01Z tonight.

MARINE. High pressure will support tranquil boating conditions over the Gulf waters the next several days with slight seas and east southeast winds around 10 knots today through Sunday, then southeast to south winds on Monday and Tuesday as surface high pressure sinks south over the region with a weak pressure pattern supporting an onshore sea breeze component developing along the coast each afternoon. No headlines are expected.

FIRE WEATHER. Very dry air over the region will support long durations of humidity values below 35 percent across the interior sections of the forecast area today through Saturday. These low humidity values combined with high ERC values will support moderate to high fire dangers across the forecast area through the period, but with winds remaining light no Red Flag conditions are expected. A slow increase in low level moisture is expected on Sunday and into early next week as the flow becomes southeast to southerly with no other fire weather hazards expected at this time.

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.
