GMZ800 Synopsis For The Coastal Waters From Bonita Beach To Suwannee River- 1029 Am Est Mon Nov 30 2020
Synopsis..A cold front moving across the waters today will produce showers and Thunderstorms over the southern waters through the morning with periodic light showers over the remaining waters possible through Tuesday. Breezy post-frontal northwest winds will result small craft advisory conditions through at least Tuesday before drying out. Easterly flow returns Wednesday into Thursday as surface high pressure builds to our north. Winds will remain elevated through the rest of the work week but should remain below advisory criteria.

Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Tampa Bay Ruskin FL 855 AM EST Mon Nov 30 2020

UPDATE. Minor updates made to existing forecast package for latest radar/satellite trends and observations. Cold front continues to push across eastern Gulf/northern peninsula with pre-frontal line of showers/storms quickly moving eastward over central/southern locations. A few embedded stronger storms remain possible given instability and shear . particularly across southern locations where boundary-layer instability will be greatest . but for the most part expect mostly a relatively brief period of moderate to heavy rain with some gusty winds possible as the line passes through the remainder of the forecast area this morning into early afternoon. Temperatures will hold steady in the mid 60s/lower 70s through the morning before falling this afternoon across northern/central areas where the line of showers/storms has already passed, and only expect slight warming into the mid 70s for southern locations before the line passes through that area by early afternoon and temperatures begin to fall. Breezy conditions will be likely across most of the area as the cold front pushes across the state today with cool/dry northwest winds in its wake beginning the pronounced cool down expected through mid-week.

Prev Discussion. /issued 657 AM EST Mon Nov 30 2020/

AVIATION . Broken line of showers/storms moves across terminals with mostly MVFR/IFR conditions possible through mid/late morning at northern terminals . spreading to southern terminals late morning/early afternoon . before clearing the region with VFR returning by late afternoon/early evening across all terminals. Lingering VCSH possible with cold air advection into region, otherwise expect gusty southwest winds shifting out of the northwest following FROPA with gusts up to 25-30 knots this afternoon before diminishing this evening to around 10-15 knots with gusts to around 20 knots for northern terminals and around 10 knots for southern terminals.

Prev Discussion . /issued 228 AM EST Mon Nov 30 2020/

.THREAT OF STRONG SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS THROUGH LATE MORNING . .MUCH COLDER AND DRIER AIR FILTERS INTO THE AREA THROUGH MID WEEK .

DISCUSSION . A substantial change in the weather pattern will be taking place by the start of the period . A closed surface low over the Central Appalachians will drag the well advertised cold front across our area through the day today. Out ahead of the front, however, we will have to deal with a broken line of showers and thunderstorms. Conditions remain favorable for some of these storms to produce strong/damaging wind gusts. A low-end tornado and/or waterspout threat will also be possible across the Nature Coast as the cells move through. Timing for the severe threat remains unchanged from previous thinking - around 4am for Levy county, sunrise or shortly after for the Bay area, 10am for Sarasota, and around noon for SWFL. Of course, keep in mind these times can fluctuate some as internal mechanisms can speed up or slow down convective lines and this is almost impossible to forecast But it gives you an idea.

The surface front itself will lag behind the line a few hours. But once it moves through, a sudden shift to breezy west/northwest winds will occur. It's likely to not completely dry out as CAA over the waters along with broad cyclonic vorticity advection will promote shallow topped showers through the day - especially over the waters and near the coastline. CAM guidance appears to be in agreement with this, which makes sense . Temperatures will be slow to rise, or perhaps even halt completely as a tightening pressure gradient drives colder and drier air into the region. This increase in winds will also create hazardous boating and beach conditions - please find the details of these in their respective products.

Tonight into tomorrow morning (Tuesday), expect noticeably colder air. Temps will fall well into the mid-upper 30s across the Nature Coast, low to mid 40s across the I-4 corridor, and low 50s in SWFL. North to northwest winds around 10 mph will make it feel 3-5 degrees colder. Our coldest high temperatures in quite sometime will occur on Tuesday, ranging from mid 50s to mid 60s. Impressively low dewpoints in the 20s-30s will keep it dry and brisk. A nice change for a Floridian, personally.

This cold airmass will continue to advect into the area, driving temps well down into the low 30s to low 40s by Wednesday morning. This will be the coldest weather we've seen since last winter. A brief freeze will be likely for parts of the Nature Coast and a watch may be necessary in subsequent forecast cycles. It's worthy to note that most MOS guidance favors a colder situation (i.e. 20s and 30s). This would be much more impactful for agricultural interests, of course. Have opted to take the model blend and lower it 2 degrees to account for this colder scenario, basically meeting MOS consensus half way . As a result, upper 20s appear possible across northern Levy with freezing temps extending as far south as Hernando county.

After a cold Wednesday, a gradual warming trend will begin as surface high pressure settles in to our north and flow also begins to shift back out of the east. Fortunately, we are not expecting any 80s so it will remain pleasant. Over the weekend, another cold front is expected to move through with best rain chances on Friday. Models have continued to trend a little warmer and drier compared to 24 hours ago, however. With that said, there is still much uncertainty regarding temperatures as 1 standard deviation for both low and high temperatures on Saturday and Sunday are 3-5 degrees . We'll get past this first front first and then hopefully pinpoint the next one a little better.

MARINE . A cold front will move through the region this morning into early afternoon. Ahead of this front, strong showers and thunderstorms will quickly progress across the waters. Behind the front, breezy northwest winds will result small craft advisory conditions through at least Tuesday before drying out. Periodic light showers over the waters will remain possible through Tuesday. By Wednesday, easterly flow returns as surface high pressure builds to our north. Winds will remain elevated through the rest of the work week but should remain below advisory criteria.

FIRE WEATHER . Showers and thunderstorms will move through the region this morning through early afternoon. A cold front will follow shortly after, resulting in a wind shift out of the northwest. Much colder and drier air will filter into the region. While periods of critical RH is likely both Tuesday and Wednesday, low ERC values and winds below 15 mph will preclude any warnings at this time.
