Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Tampa Bay Ruskin FL 429 AM EST Tue Jan 28 2020

DISCUSSION. The Gulf low has shifted to the SW FL coast this morning, and the front remains across central FL. These will continue to shift to the SE today as high pressure and drier air move in across the area. High pressure then shifts east as an area of low pressure moves east across the northern Gulf coast Wednesday and across the state Wednesday afternoon/night. Scattered to numerous showers and maybe a thunderstorm will be possible with the low. Drier air moves in behind it through early Friday. Then yet another area of low pressure lifts from the Gulf NE across the state Friday night and Saturday, with scattered to numerous showers possible. Dry high pressure builds in behind the front for the rest of the weekend through Monday. High temperatures will generally remain in the upper 60s to upper 70s through the period, and lows will be in the mid 40s to lower 60s through Saturday morning, then a bit cooler for Sunday and Monday mornings.

AVIATION. Some MVFR ceilings in place across the area will persist through around 14z and skies should then lift and scatter out. NE winds turn to the N/NW in the afternoon for a few hours, then return to the NE after 00z.

MARINE. High pressure will build in across the waters today as the low continues to shift to the SE. Winds and seas will continue to subside through the afternoon. Another area of low pressure then moves across the waters later Wednesday and Wednesday night with showers and maybe a thunderstorm possible with it. Another area of low pressure will lift from the Gulf across the waters Friday into Saturday, with more showers possible. Winds and seas will increase behind this system as high pressure builds.

FIRE WEATHER. A couple of hours of critical humidities will be possible this afternoon mainly north of I-4, otherwise no concerns.

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.
