Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Tampa Bay Ruskin FL 826 PM EDT Mon Jul 13 2020

UPDATE. Westerly flow continues over the region as mean layer moisture increases, seen in 00Z TBW sounding with PWATs up to 1.76 inches. Afternoon convection has already waned with clearing skies. Latest guidance continues to suggest E Gulf showers to redevelop overnight and move into coastal areas into Tuesday morning which is typical for light westerly flow. Latest grids and forecasts on track.

AVIATION. Light westerly flow and VFR conditions expected rest of this evening and tonight with redevelopment of E Gulf convection possible overnight towards 12Z.

Prev Discussion. /issued 239 PM EDT Mon Jul 13 2020/

SHORT TERM (TDY-WED) . An upper level trough expanding across the US East Coast will move offshore and to the northeast through early Tuesday. Meanwhile at the surface, a high pressure remains in place over south Florida with prevailing west to southwest flow across the central and southwestern part of the state. Showers and thunderstorms are expected to continue to develop over the water and some could make it inland through the early evening hours, however the dry airmass that moved into our area earlier today will limit how much precip we will get over land. The aforementioned area of dry air will make its way south and dissipate overnight, which will limit the showers activity, especially south of Charlotte County during this time. Warm and humid conditions remain overnight with lows staying in the mid to upper 70s.

The moisture increase will support more showers and thunderstorms through Tuesday and westerly flow will push storms from the coast inland in the morning and then additional showers and thunderstorms will develop across interior locations by the afternoon.

On Wednesday, the surface high pressure begins to move north and expand over the southeast bringing relatively light winds and higher rainfall chances over the interior as west and east sea breeze collide over our eastern counties. Highs will be in the mid to upper 90s through the period with heat indices staying in the triple digits, especially Wednesday afternoon.

LONG TERM (THU-SUN) . As surface high continues to build across the southeast, and on Thursday we begin to transition into a more easterly flow across the Sunshine State. Convection chances and coverage is expected to increase across most of the area.

There is a chance that another area of dry air will move over northern Florida early on Friday, but easterly winds will prevail pushing storms across the state by the afternoon.

Going into the weekend, the ridge axis moves east and will bring strong east to southeast winds to the Peninsula. This will result in a significant increase in showers and thunderstorms in the afternoon and evening. Temperatures won't really change through the rest of the period, with highs in the 90s and overnight lows in the 70s.

MARINE . Pleasant boating conditions will prevail as high pressure over south Florida remains in place through the period. Westerly winds will push showers and thunderstorms across the waters during the early morning hours. By Wednesday, relatively light winds return with onshore sea breeze in the afternoon, as high pressure begins to move north. The rest of the week and through the weekend, easterly flow will bring showers and storms over the waters by late evening through the overnight hours. No headlines are anticipated through the period. The main threat will be associated with showers and thunderstorms that will be capable of producing frequent lightning, locally gusty winds, and rough seas.

FIRE WEATHER . High pressure at the surface will continue to bring westerly winds and showers and thunderstorms to the area. The dry airmass that moved in this morning will move south of our area through the evening allowing humidities to nicely recover. This will result in an increase in showers and thunderstorms on Tuesday and relatively light westerlies staying in place. Winds will shift and become more east to northeast on Wednesday as high pressure begins to move north. Otherwise, no fire weather concerns.

In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
