Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Tampa Bay Ruskin FL 859 AM EDT Fri Apr 10 2020

UPDATE. Zonal flow aloft will dominate over the area as low pressure system moves across the northeast and extends southward. At the surface a cold front will move across the state bringing chances of showers to the area today. This combined with 70 degrees dewpoints over the area and the ample instability in the atmosphere will support a thunderstorm or two through this afternoon. There area a few thunderstorms about 100 miles offshore moving west to southwest relatively fast, and producing some lightning that we will to continue to monitor as they get close to shore.

Afternoon temperatures will be in the upper 70s north to the upper 80s south. Winds will be mostly westerly, but will become northerly behind the frontal passage. Lows will be much cooler than what we have been experiencing, ranging from the low 50s near the Nature Coast to the mid 60s south.

AVIATION. A cold front will move across the state bringing MVFR conditions and showers at least through 21Z to most terminals. Added VCSH to TPA and PIE due to some showers moving onshore earlier than expected. Kept showers out of all other terminals until 15z, but showers could arrive to SRQ before 15Z. Winds will be mostly WNW less than 10 kts, increasing to 10-15 kts and some higher gust after 15Z or near any thunderstorms.

MARINE. Low pressure disturbance and associated cold front will bring chances of showers and thunderstorms to the area today. Winds are currently from the west to northwest 10 to 15 knots, becoming north and increasing to 15 knots by the afternoon hours.

Prev Discussion. /issued 258 AM EDT Fri Apr 10 2020/

DISCUSSION . A predominant zonal flow sets up over Florida as a closed upper low sits over Maine with upper trouging extending through the New England states southwest to Tennessee. Weak upper ridging extends northward through the central U.S. and will flatten out as it slowly progresses eastward over the next couple of days. Another upper low spinning over southwest California will eject eastward by late Saturday as an open trough progressing farther to the east by the end of the weekend. This trough will lend support to the next significant weather system expected to influence the eastern half of the U.S. at the start of next week and continuing through the middle of next week.

The front will wash out by Saturday with partly cloudy skies expected through the weekend. Temperatures will be slightly cooler the next couple of days with increasing cloudiness, before heating up on Sunday ahead of the next weather system. Gusty southerly winds will advect a warm and humid air mass over Florida on Sunday as an area of low pressure develops near LA/AR/MS. This system will move northeast through the Mississippi River Valley late Sunday into Monday and will be located over the Great Lakes by Monday afternoon. The trailing edge of the cold front will move across Florida producing the highest chances of showers and storms (30-70% POPs) through the period. Although widespread severe storms are not expected at this time, some storms could produce gusty winds and heavy downpours on Monday. The front will stall out over central Florida producing continued bouts of showers through the middle of next week. Temperatures next week will run a few degrees above average.

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.
