GMZ800 Synopsis For The Coastal Waters From Bonita Beach To Suwannee River- 407 Am Edt Tue May 26 2020
Synopsis.. The tight pressure gradient between higher pressure to the east of us and a low over the gulf of mexico will gradually relax as an area of low pressure off the east coast of florida moves north and pushes high eastward. As a result, gusty easterly winds have diminished and therefore boating have improved. However, there will be chances of showers and Thunderstorms each afternoon and evening through the rest of the week and into the weekend.

Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Tampa Bay Ruskin FL 927 AM EDT Tue May 26 2020

FOR THE MORNING UPDATE. Weak area of low pressure off the east coast of the Florida peninsula will continue to lift slowly north today and tonight. Weak boundary across north central Florida will enhance L/L convergence and shower/thunderstorm activity this afternoon across the northern nature coast . so have increased pops in this area.

Considerable cloudiness across the region this morning will give way to some breaks this afternoon and allow for enough daytime heating for high temps to climb into the mid to upper 80s . with around 90 over southwest Florida. Atmosphere remains conditionally unstable and combination of insolation and development of west coast sea breeze boundary will allow scattered showers and thunderstorms to develop this afternoon. Boundary layer flow has shifted to the southwest which will push the sea breeze boundary inland through the day. Scattered shower/thunderstorm activity will develop along the sea breeze boundary during the early afternoon, with an increase in areal coverage of storms as the boundary pushes inland through the remainder of the day. Drier air aloft has advected over the forecast area so a few stronger storms could produce gusty winds of 35 to 45 mph . with the best chance over the interior.

TBW WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. FL . None. Gulf waters . None.

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.
