Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Tampa Bay Ruskin FL 222 AM EST Sat Feb 22 2020

DISCUSSION. The pattern aloft shows ridging from Mexico to the Canadian border sliding to the Southeast and Mid-Atlantic states Sun as a low just offshore central CA pushes to the central high plains. At the surface sprawling high pressure across the southeast quarter of the nation shifts to Atlantic coastal waters by late Sun. A subtle trough embedded on the south side the high pressure tracks across FL to the Gulf of Mexico through the weekend.

The high pressure to the north is providing a cool to cold northerly flow with skies clearing . except in the far south where a few to scattered clouds continue. Freezing temperatures are still expected across inland Levy County with a freeze warning between 4 and 9 this morning There will be some low wind chill readings. especially toward dawn . but not low enough for a wind chill advisory. While winds will be turning and diminishing today the water levels at area beach remain elevated . supporting a high risk of rip currents through the evening. Clear to mostly clear skies with temperatures below normal continue into Sun morning. By then the lower level flow has taken on a more northeast to east component with temperatures warming to near normal for the highs and enough moisture for some scattered afternoon clouds.

From Mon through Fri: The ridging aloft and the high pressure in the Atlantic exit east early in the week. The low above the central high plains tracks northeastward during the week . reaching Quebec, Canada Fri . with broad troughiness over the eastern U.S. The upper low spins up a surface reflection that trails a cold front southward. The front moves into the Gulf coast and southeastern states early in the week then traverses down FL toward the end of the week. Surface high pressure begins to build into the Gulf of Mexico Fri.

The front along with the 1000-700mb flow becoming south then southwest will result in increasing moisture and shower chances. The showers move into the Nature Coast Mon . spread southward across the area tue and Wed . then exit by Thu as the front clears the peninsular. the high pressure behind the front will bring robust winds with hazardous marine conditions and cold dry air for the end of the week. Temperatures Fri morning will be well below normal with parts of the Nature Coast approaching freezing.

AVIATION. 22/06Z TAF cycle. VFR. SKC to FEW/SCT CU/SC. Winds NNE to NE and gusty at times.

MARINE. While winds and seas are starting to come down they will remain in advisory criteria this morning then drop into caution range for the afternoon. Winds begin to veer and continue to diminish Sun and continue below any headline requirements through Wed. A cold front ushers in high pressure with robust to strong winds for the end of the week.

FIRE WEATHER. Dry air with cool but slowly moderating temperatures will keep the min RH above red flag criteria for the rest of the weekend. Some gusty 20 foot winds and robust transport winds will result in locally high dispersion today and again Sun. Moisture begins to return Mon with no low RH concerns for early to mid- week. A surge of very dry and cool to cold air is expected for the end of the week.

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.
