Increasing rain chances Friday and into the weekend...

Discussion (tonight - next Wednesday)
Scattered showers and storms over the area early tonight will
gradually end shortly after sunset as boundary interactions weaken
and loss of daytime heating occurs with skies becoming partly
cloudy overnight. On Thursday surface and mid level ridging from
the western atlantic extending west near the florida georgia
border and across the northwest gulf coast will remain in control
as an inverted trough tropical wave approaches from the southeast.

Some drier descending air on the northwest side of the
approaching trough will result in lower rain chances across the
forecast area with pops in the 20 to 40 percent range expected
from north to south with the southeast steering flow favoring the
timing of limited convective coverage along the gulf coast during
the late afternoon and early evening hours similiar to today.

During Friday and into the upcoming weekend the atlantic ridge
will meander about the northern peninsula as the aforementioned
inverted trough wave moves across the southern peninsula on Friday
and then west into the gulf on Saturday. Increasing moisture and
lift associated with the favorable eastern side of the inverted
trough wave will support increasing rain chances with scattered to
numerous showers and storms expected each day during the
afternoon and evening hours along with some locally heavy rain in
some locations. With the ground remaining quite saturated from the
recent heavy rains, any additional heavy rainfall will likely
produce localized flooding and additional rises on area rivers.

Now during early next week an upper level trough and attendant
frontal boundary moving into and stalling out across the
southeastern states and northern gulf coast will help to push the
surface ridge axis back south into the south central peninsula
with the low level southeast wind flow becoming southwest to west.

In addition models show a trough axis (the remnants of the
inverted trough tropical wave) lingering from the east central
gulf extending northeast across the north-central peninsula. This
trough combined with ample moisture (pw's 2+ inches) will support
unsettled weather across the entire forecast area with numerous
showers and scattered storms occurring just about anytime along
with the potential for some locally heavy rain in areas where
training occurs as the showers and storms move onshore from the
gulf across the forecast area. Temperatures will run close to
normal with overnight lows in the lower to mid 70s inland area,
and upper 70s along the coast with daytime highs around 90 to the
lower 90s.

Aviation
Brief MVFR CIGS vsbys and some gusty winds may impact the
terminals through 01z as scattered shra tsra move across the
region. Outside of the convectionVFR is expected. East-southeast
winds at 6 to 8 knots will become onshore at ktpa, kpie, and ksrq
terminals after 19z as the sea breeze develops with light east to
southeast winds returning to all terminals after 01z tonight.

Marine
High pressure from the western atlantic extending west across the
northern peninsula will maintain east southeast winds around 10
knots with seas of 2 feet or less over the gulf waters through the
end of the week and into the upcoming weekend, with a weak
pressure pattern supporting an onshore sea breeze component
developing along the coast each afternoon. Wind and seas will be
higher near late afternoon and evening thunderstorms, otherwise no
headlines are expected.

Fire weather
Ample moisture and daily rain chances will keep humidity values
well above critical levels through the end of the week and into
the upcoming weekend with no fire weather hazards expected.
