Synopsis..It has been a very wet start to the day once again over the eastern gulf waters. Scattered showers and storms will be possible each day with the highest coverage during the overnight and early morning hours before moving inland during the afternoon. Some of these storms will produce gusty winds, higher waves and dangerous lightning. All mariners should pay close attention to the weather and make sure to head back to safety when storms develop. Otherwise, winds remain less than 15 knots and seas 2 feet or less. This pattern will continue through the remainder of the week and into the weekend.

Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Tampa Bay Ruskin FL 745 PM EDT Thu Jul 29 2021

DISCUSSION. A weak mid level low/trough over the northeast Gulf of Mexico and north FL early this evening slips westward during the night as mid level ridging above the central plains builds across the Deep South to the southeast US coastal waters. At the surface Atlantic high pressure stretches to the central Gulf waters . with an axis meandering over south FL. A northwesterly to southwesterly flow prevails over night with abundant moisture . model PWAT values run 2 inches and above through early morning.

Morning convection scooted away to the east in the afternoon with only patches of light rain/showers still across the Nature Coast. These should wind down within the next hour or so with generally rain free conditions until late night coastal showers and storms begin to push onshore Fri morning. Forecasts look good but have made minor adjustments in the near term to better reflect ongoing conditions.

AVIATION. 30/00Z TAFs. Convection favored late morning/early afternoon at the terminals then slipped away to the east. Anticipate VFR over night with limited BR at LAL. VCNTY TSRA begins 14Z in the north and 18Z in the south. NW winds become light and VRBL to calm over night then SW to W AOB 10KT AFT 14Z.

MARINE. Winds/seas 15 knots/3 feet or less although locally higher near showers/thunderstorms.

Atlantic high pressure stretches to the central Gulf of Mexico . with an axis meandering over south FL waters . through early next week. This results in southwest to westerly flow and ample moisture for nocturnal coastal convection that transitions onshore in the daytime hours.
