Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Tampa Bay Ruskin FL 738 PM EDT Tue Oct 27 2020

AVIATION. VFR conditions expected through the period with southeast to easterly winds. Winds will be gusty in the afternoon with most spots seeing between a 15 to 20 knot wind gust.

Prev Discussion. /issued 236 PM EDT Tue Oct 27 2020/

DISCUSSION . Mid-upper level ridging, combined with surface high pressure continues to be the dominant weather feature over the southeast U.S. Tropical Storm Zeta, located just north of the Yucatan Peninsula will be steered by this ridging as it moves northward through the central Gulf of Mexico toward SE Louisiana over the next 36 hours. After TS Zeta makes landfall, the storm will continue tracking northeast through the mid-Atlantic states on Thursday and then exiting into the northern Atlantic off the New England coastline early Friday morning. See National Hurricane Center advisories for details and updates. A cold front is expected to move through Florida late Thursday into early Friday morning. This will bring scattered showers and isolated storms, primarily over the Nature Coast and a shift in winds to the north-northwest. This will also bring a slight cool down with closer to seasonal average temps with daytime highs in the low to mid 80's instead of the sweltering 90's we have seen the past few days. Another front is expected to move through on Monday and will stall just south of Florida. This will help keep some lower temps and lower humidities starting Friday and continuing through next Tuesday.

MARINE . Interaction between Tropical Storm Zeta near the Yucatan Peninsula and broad high pressure over the eastern seaboard will continue to produce gusty east-southeast winds around 15 knots over the gulf coast waters over the next couple of days. Scattered showers and isolated storms will be possible through the end of the week. Gusty winds, dangerous lightning and rough seas can be expected in the vicinity of thunderstorms. A long period SW-W swell around 3-6 feet will propagate from Tropical Storm Zeta as it moves through the central Gulf of Mexico on Wednesday. A cold front moves through the eastern gulf waters on Friday bringing a good chance of showers and storms.

FIRE WEATHER . Scattered showers and isolated thunderstorms can be expected today and late Thursday. These showers and storms combined with high humidities will preclude any red flag conditions. 20 ft winds around 10 knots with higher gusts will produce some moderate to high dispersion index values on Wednesday. No other fire weather concerns expected.

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.
