Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Tampa Bay Ruskin FL 254 PM EDT Sun Jul 12 2020

DISCUSSION. A front is stalling across the northern half of the forecast area this afternoon, with high pressure ridging across Cuba. This puts westerly flow in place across the local area, with drier air in place across the northern half of the area behind the front. The majority of morning convection has pushed south of the area, but have continued some lower chances of rain for the rest of the afternoon inland and south as some good CAPE remains across those areas.

High pressure to the south will start to build back to the north for early next week with moisture moderating back across the area. The westerly flow continues through mid-week, then the ridge axis builds to the north of the area Thursday bringing a return to easterly flow across the area. Scattered to numerous showers and thunderstorms will be possible each day. Highs will remain in the lower to mid 90s each afternoon, with lows in the mid 70s to around 80.

AVIATION. Have some VCTS in the inland and southern terminals through around 02z, then conditions should clear out through around 14z. Have some VCTS returning across the southern terminals after 14z where the best moisture is. VFR conditions prevail, but MVFR to IFR will be possible in storms. Westerly winds will be in place through this evening, then becoming more light SW overnight, and returning more to the west after 14z.

MARINE. Westerly flow continues across the waters with more of a NW component across the northern waters behind the front. The front will gradually dissipate through the evening. High pressure across Cuba then starts to build back to the north for early next week, with westerly flow continuing. Easterly flow then returns by Thursday as the ridge axis finally lifts north of the area. No headlines are expected through the period, but winds and seas will be locally higher near scattered thunderstorms.

FIRE WEATHER. No concerns. Humidities will remain above critical levels through the period.

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.
