Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Tampa Bay Ruskin FL 224 AM EST Fri Jan 17 2020

DISCUSSION. Significant U/L pattern change as the persistent strong U/L ridge over the Gulf of Mexico and Florida will be ejected east as an U/L trough digs over the eastern U.S. over the weekend and into early next week.

At the surface, a backdoor cold front will push across the forecast area early this morning with high pressure along the mid Atlantic coast building over the region in the wake of the front with increasing east to northeast winds. Drier air will advect across the region however temperatures will continue to run several degrees above climatic normals.

An area of low pressure will move across the Great Lakes on Saturday with an associated cold front approaching north Florida Saturday night. The cold front will push slowly southeast across the Florida peninsula Sunday and Sunday night with an increasing chance of showers and possibly a few thunderstorms . with the highest pops over the nature coast. Canadian high pressure will build over the southeast U.S. and Florida in the wake of the front with much colder drier air advecting across the region Monday and Tuesday. Ideal conditions for cold air drainage flow down the peninsula will develop Monday night with freezing temperatures possible across portions of the nature coast . and mid to upper 30s possible in colder interior locations of the central forecast area. Still a bit of wind could cause even lower wind chill values.

Sunny and rather cold Tuesday with highs only expected to be in the lower/mid 50s north . upper 50s to lower 60s central . and mid 60s south. Gradient expected to weaken Tuesday night with radiational cooling allowing overnight temperatures to drop again near or below freezing across the nature coast . with generally in the upper 30s to lower 40s central . and lower to mid 40s south. Boundary layer winds will be veering a bit more northeast off the Atlantic and will begin modification process of airmass . with warmer temperatures on Wednesday . however highs will still be in the 60s north and central to around 70 south.

AVIATION. IFR CIGS 004-008 possible early this morning at TPA/PIE/SRQ . and possibly vcnty LAL. Predominately VFR conditions will prevail on Friday with SCT 030-040 and SCT-BKN 250.

MARINE. Small craft advisory today through early Saturday morning over the outer waters with exercise caution conditions likely elsewhere. Gradient will weaken on Saturday. However a cold front will push across the waters Sunday night and Monday with increasing north winds with advisory conditions possible through Tuesday night.

FIRE WEATHER. No fire weather hazards are expected for the next several days as relative humidity values are expected to remain above critical levels.

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.
