Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Tampa Bay Ruskin FL 243 AM EST Mon Jan 20 2020

. MUCH COOLER CONDITIONS EXPECTED THROUGH WEDNESDAY .

DISCUSSION. The forecast for the next few days will be dominated by strong cold air advection in the wake of the recent cold front, which will be reinforced periodically as a couple of strong shortwaves dig into the southeastern US. As this cooler and drier air filters south into the Florida Peninsula today, clouds will gradually clear out by this afternoon, but the breezy north winds will prevent temperatures from breaking out of the 50s over the Nature Coast, although southwest Florida should still warm up to the mid to upper 60s. Although these breezy winds will be out of the north, onshore wave action will create a high risk of rip currents at area beaches throughout the day.

The cold air advection will continue overnight, with a Freeze Warning in effect for Levy County early Tuesday morning. Farther south, isolated spots could still touch freezing briefly, although most areas should only drop into the mid to upper 30s, with some 40s along the coast. Apparent temperatures will drop into the 20s over the Nature Coast counties and low to mid 30s as far south as Charlotte County, but wind speeds are not forecast to be high enough to warrant a Wind Chill Advisory at this time.

The cold air advection will continue on Tuesday in spite of some sunny skies, with highs generally topping out in the 50s and low 60s. Tuesday night is forecast to be the coldest night of the week, with a Freeze Watch in effect for Levy, Citrus, Hernando, and Sumter Counties. Farther south, wind speeds will be a little higher than tonight, so a Wind Chill Advisory may end up being needed for much of the area.

Temperatures will start to moderate Wednesday and Thursday as winds turn to easterly. Winds will continue to veer to southerly Thursday night and Friday ahead of the next front developing over the western Gulf of Mexico, with highs on Friday expected to be back above normal, generally reaching into the mid to upper 70s. The southerly low level flow will also allow for building atmospheric moisture, leading to some isolated to scattered showers Thursday night through Friday night. The cold front is expected to pass through the area on Saturday, resulting in another cool down, although this will be a much more mild cold air mass than the current event, and temperatures will not approach freezing.

AVIATION. MVFR and occasional IFR ceilings will gradually clear out of the area from north to south during the rest of the overnight and early morning hours. VFR conditions will then generally hold through the rest of the day under breezy north and northwest winds.

MARINE. High pressure will build in to the eastern Gulf of Mexico from the northwest today through Wednesday in the wake of the recent cold front, setting up breezy northerly winds. A Small Craft Advisory is in effect for the Gulf waters north of Englewood through 10 AM this morning, with exercise caution conditions elsewhere. Winds will subside slightly by late morning, but will remain around exercise caution thresholds into Tuesday. Wind speeds will increase again over the eastern Gulf of Mexico Tuesday afternoon and evening, likely resulting in another Small Craft Advisory.

Winds will gradually subside Wednesday morning through Thursday as the ridge of high pressure settles in to the north of the waters and winds turn to easterly. Thursday night and Friday, winds will turn to southerly ahead of an approaching cold front, resulting in increasing chances of showers.

FIRE WEATHER. Cooler and drier air will fill into the area behind the front today, with relative humidity percentages dropping into the mid 30s for a few hours in some locations this afternoon and again Tuesday afternoon. However, wind speeds are not expected to be high enough to trigger Red Flag Warnings.

In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
