Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Tampa Bay Ruskin FL 226 AM EST Mon Mar 1 2021

DISCUSSION. Pattern change taking shape for mid/late week. Subtropical ridge surface and aloft across the Gulf of Mexico and the Florida peninsula will hold over the region today with continued above normal temperatures . but will begin to be suppressed to the south on Tuesday as a southern stream disturbance pushes across the Lower Mississippi Valley and Southeast U.S. on Tuesday and and Tuesday night. This will begin the process of carving out a L/W trough over the eastern U.S. as the northern and southern streams come into phase . with the trough deepening over the Florida peninsula on Thursday. An U/L disturbance will dig down the backside of the trough on Friday over the Lower Mississippi Valley . and across Florida in the base of the trough on Saturday. The trough will begin to lift out to the northeast on Sunday and Monday.

At the surface, a cold front will stall across north central Florida tonight as it becomes parallel to the U/L flow with a chance of showers developing across the northern nature coast. Slightly cooler temperatures will also move across northern areas. South of the boundary over the remainder of the forecast area, partly cloudy skies and continued warm temperatures through Tuesday . with patch late night fog developing tonight mainly over the interior. Tuesday night, the front will lift back north of the region as an area of low pressure moves quickly across the southeast U.S. and off the mid Atlantic coast by early Wednesday. The associated cold front will sink south down the Florida peninsula on Wednesday. Only a chance of showers with the frontal passage as the main U/L support will have lifted well north of the region. High pressure and cooler much drier air will advect across west central and southwest Florida in the wake of the front. The next U/L disturbance will push across the forecast area on Saturday with an increasing chance of showers. U/L forcing appears will be strong but low level stability will likely lead to showers/rain on the cold air/north side of the boundary which is expected to be across the entire forecast area. There is a risk of elevated convection, but too early to pinpoint. The U/L disturbance will exit the region late Saturday and Saturday night with clearing skies and cooler drier air advecting across west central and southwest Florida.

AVIATION. Patchy fog and low ceilings mainly over the interior early this morning vcnty LAL will create LCL MVFR VSBYS and IFR CIGS . but may also impact TPA/PIE/SRQ/PGD. Skies will become partly cloudy later this morning with VFR conditions expected at all terminals. Field of CU will develop this afternoon 040-050 with LCL VFR CIGS.

MARINE. Winds will remain less than 15 knots through tonight. Increasing east/northeast winds across the northern waters tonight vcnty of the stalled out frontal boundary . but will weaken on Tuesday as the front lifts back to the north. Winds will increase Tuesday night and Wednesday the front pushes across the waters and winds back to the northwest. Winds and seas will subside Wednesday night through Friday. Winds will increase to near exercise caution levels Friday night and Saturday as the next U/l disturbance moves across the waters.

FIRE WEATHER. No fire weather hazards are expected for the next several days as relative humidity values are expected to remain above critical levels.
