Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Tampa Bay Ruskin FL 751 PM EDT Tue Apr 7 2020

UPDATE. As expected, it was a dry and toasty Tuesday with widespread upper 80s to low 90s. Fort Myers (FMY) broke a daily record with a peak of 93 degrees. Some limited patchy fog cannot be ruled out between I-4 and the Turnpike and east of I-75 where light winds, clear skies, and decent low level moisture exists. Have opted to go ahead and update this into the forecast. No other changes were necessary this evening Otherwise. Tomorrow, it'll be hot with a stiff westerly wind throughout the day. Unfortunately, this trajectory will help to advect higher dewpoints off the Gulf so it will not be as comfortable compared to some of our other hot days. Temps will be mid 80s north and near the coast with low 90s inland.

AVIATION. Prevailing VFR conditions with northwest winds diminishing in the next couple of hours. Some patchy MVFR vsby is possible overnight at LAL. Otherwise, persistent westerly winds will pick up during daytime heating tomorrow. Late in the period (after 00Z tomorrow), MVFR cigs are are likely to begin working their way into the peninsula.

MARINE. High pressure will sag south of the peninsula, with persistent westerly winds. While widespread headlines are not expected, SCEC conditions are possible in northern marine zones over the next couple of days. Unsettled weather will return by Friday as a weakening cold front moves south across the area. This front will bring northerly winds and a slight chance for showers. There is the potential for stronger southeast to south winds to arrive towards the end of the weekend as a stronger system works its way through the southeastern US.

GEOS Local Image of Southeast    EDIT
NOTE: East coast views moved to GEOS-16. They are experimental and not well supported by NOAA so they may not be correct so be warned. This change required redoing a large amount of the GOES code. If the image you are expecting is not showing, please let me know. You may need to use the EDIT function to update your location.

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.
