Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Tampa Bay Ruskin FL 1242 PM EST Thu Jan 23 2020

AVIATION. VFR conditions with east-northeast winds less than 10 knots expected through the day. As we saw this morning, low CIGs and VSBY will produce some more IFR/LIFR conditions for the terminals, so hold low clouds from 07-15Z to cover this. VFR expected after 15Z tomorrow. No other aviation impacts expected.

Prev Discussion. /issued 1018 AM EST Thu Jan 23 2020/

UPDATE . Some pesky low clouds and fog were being reported early this morning making for a dreary morning. Latest visible satellite imagery and surface observations shows clearing skies, which will continue through the day. Temperatures are already much warmer than 24 hours ago and will continue to warm up into the low to mid 70's this afternoon. No changes needed at this time.

AVIATION . Low clouds continue to linger at LAL/PGD so will hold LIFR CIGs at those locations through 16Z. After that, VFR conditions expected at all terminals. Winds remain east-northeast less than 10 knots. No other aviation impacts expected.

MARINE . High pressure has moved over the New England states and continues to ridge south-southwest along the eastern seaboard. The gradient has weakened, therefore the winds and seas are expected to remain 10 knots or less and seas 2 feet or less for the next couple of days. A cold front moves through the coastal waters on Friday producing a chance of showers. No other marine impacts expected.

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.
