GMZ800 Synopsis For The Coastal Waters From Bonita Beach To Suwannee River- 217 Pm Est Tue Jan 21 2020
Synopsis.. Interaction between strong high pressure over the mississippi river valley and an area of low pressure near the bahamas is producing gusty northerly winds across the eastern gulf of mexico. This has warranted the issuance of a sca for all the gulf coast waters and scec for tampa bay and charlotte harbor through late Wednesday morning. Onshore wave action will produce a high risk of rip currents at local beaches through the day. The high pressure moves off the mid-atlantic coast by Thursday which will bring the winds around to the east and will decrease below any sca or scec level to close out the week. Another cold front moves through the coastal waters on Friday producing a chance of showers.

Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Tampa Bay Ruskin FL 206 PM EST Tue Jan 21 2020

. FREEZING TEMPERATURES CONTINUE TONIGHT .

DISCUSSION. A highly amplified upper level pattern continues over the eastern half of the CONUS. Sharp ridging extends from Texas northeastward into the western Great Lakes region. Closer to home, a closed upper low has moved into the base of the long wave trough over the GA/SC border. This upper pattern will be the perfect set up to advect more frigid air into the region on Tuesday night into Wednesday morning. The ridge axis moves along the east coast late Wednesday into Thursday, which will start the transition to a warming trend through the end of the week. Another upper low and trough moves south of the Great Lakes by the end of the week and approaches the east coast through the weekend and will lend support to the next cold front expected to cross Florida.

On the surface, a strong high pressure center located over the Mississippi River Valley dominates the weather over the southeast U.S., producing clear skies and much colder weather to the region over the next couple of days. The daytime highs today and Wednesday will top out only in the mid 50's to low 60's. The coldest weather we have seen this winter is expected tonight with temperatures around freezing or below for most of the area. Winds chills will bottom out around 20 to 28 degrees over most of the area tonight, which has warranted the issuance of a Wind Chill Advisory for all of west central and southwest Florida. A Freeze Warning is also in effect for Hernando County northward along the Nature Coast for early Wednesday morning, with a Freeze Watch for all the other counties across west central and southwest Florida.

The next weather system develops through the Mississippi River Valley with a cold front extending into the central Gulf of Mexico late Thursday into Friday. Winds turn southeast, then southwest ahead of this system and will warm things up on Thursday and Friday. This system will move eastward with the cold front moving across Florida on Friday bringing increasing rain chances. Another slight cool down is expected Saturday and continuing into the beginning of next week, then moderating to around average by Tuesday next week.

AVIATION. VFR conditions with gusty northerly winds around 10-15 knots with gusts to 20 knots expected through the period.

MARINE. Interaction between strong high pressure over the Mississippi River Valley and an area of low pressure near the Bahamas is producing gusty northerly winds across the eastern Gulf of Mexico. This has warranted the issuance of a SCA for all the gulf coast waters and SCEC for Tampa Bay and Charlotte Harbor through late Wednesday morning. Onshore wave action will produce a high risk of rip currents at local beaches through the day. The high pressure moves off the mid-Atlantic coast by Thursday which will bring the winds around to the east and will decrease below any SCA or SCEC level to close out the week. Another cold front moves through the coastal waters on Friday producing a chance of showers.

FIRE WEATHER. Colder and drier air has filtered into the area today, with relative humidity percentages dropping into the mid 30s for a few hours in some locations this afternoon. These low RH values combined with gusty winds and high ERC values has warranted the issuance of a Red Flag Warning for portions of west central Florida. Increasing RH values and decreasing winds on Wednesday will prevent any further fire weather concerns through the week.

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.
