Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Tampa Bay Ruskin FL 213 PM EDT Thu Apr 2 2020

DISCUSSION. Surface N Atlantic storm system to keep the dry high pressure dome stretched from the Great Lakes into the Deep South with pleasant local weather this afternoon through Friday.

This weekend, upper level ridging to build over the region while the surface high pressure moves into the W Atlantic producing southerly low level flow increasing temps and low level moisture. Some model solutions hint at a slight chance of showers to end the weekend as a small shortwave moves through the Deep South, but confidence is low at this point.

Stacked ridging becomes more dominant next week with very warm temps and minimal rain chances.

AVIATION. VFR conditions continue at all sites next with seabreeze winds becoming light and variable tonight.

MARINE. Weak high pressure in the region will keep light winds and slight seas over the E Gulf waters into the weekend with a sea breeze each afternoon. High pressure sinks south Sunday into early next week with light-moderate winds shifting SE-S.

FIRE WEATHER. Very dry conditions to continue through Saturday with critically low humidity and high ERC values but winds will remain light. Southerly flow will increase low level moisture Sunday and into early next week.

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.
