Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Tampa Bay Ruskin FL 801 PM EDT Sat Apr 4 2020

UPDATE. Early evening IR satellite imagery is showing widespread cirrus clouds spreading across the Florida Peninsula ahead of an approaching disturbance currently over the western Gulf of Mexico. This disturbance is on track to bring chances of showers into the area by Sunday afternoon, but quiet weather is expected to prevail overnight tonight as west central and southwest Florida remains well ahead of this system.

Overall the forecast looks on track, and no significant changes were needed for the evening update.

AVIATION. VFR conditions are expected to hold overnight and through Sunday morning. Sunday afternoon, isolated to scattered showers and widespread MVFR ceiling are expected to develop, along with increasing wind speeds.

MARINE. Wind speeds will remain around 10 knots or less through Monday as an upper level disturbance moves east across the area bringing chances of showers and variable wind directions. High pressure northeast of Florida will shift south during the first half of next week ahead of an approaching cold front, allowing light easterly winds to shift to westerly by Wednesday and Thursday.

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.
