Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Tampa Bay Ruskin FL 241 PM EDT Mon Jul 6 2020

DISCUSSION. A weak area of low pressure is developing over the southeast U.S. while a surface ridge axis extends across the Florida straits. The two systems are creating southwest boundary layer flow across west central and southwest Florida . and this will persist through Tuesday. Deep tropical moisture remains over the region with PCPW values of over two inches along with a conditionally unstable atmosphere. The onshore flow will promote scattered nocturnal showers and thunderstorms to develop over the coastal waters spreading inland during the morning hours . and increasing in areal coverage as they move over the interior during the afternoon hours.

On Wednesday, the surface ridge axis will lift north over the central Florida peninsula. The weaker boundary layer flow will inhibit boundary collisions to some degree with slightly lower pops . however deep tropical moisture will remain over the region with a convectively unstable atmosphere which will allow scattered mainly afternoon thunderstorms to develop with the best chance of rain over the interior and across the nature coast.

Wednesday night and Thursday, low pressure will strengthen along the mid Atlantic coast with an associated boundary pushing south across the northern/central Florida peninsula. This will be the focus for shower/thunderstorm activity, however westerly flow will support highest pops over the interior.

Boundary will persist across the forecast area through the weekend with persistent southwest boundary layer flow. Again, this will favor scattered nocturnal showers/thunderstorms developing over the coastal waters . pushing onshore during the morning hours and increasing in areal coverage as they push inland during the afternoon hours.

AVIATION. VFR conditions will prevail through the remainder of the afternoon and tonight. Isolated to scattered showers and thunderstorms vcnty all terminals the remainder of this afternoon with LCL MVFR CIGS and IFR vsbys.

MARINE. West to southwest winds will persist through the period with winds/seas remaining below advisory levels. Main hazard will be scattered thunderstorms capable of producing locally gusty winds and rough seas.

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

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.
