Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Tampa Bay Ruskin FL 158 PM EDT Sat Mar 28 2020

DISCUSSION. High pressure is ridging across the state at the surface and aloft providing dry and hot conditions this afternoon. This will continue for Sunday as the upper ridge builds more over the southern half of the peninsula. Highs will again be in the mid to upper 80s at the coast and lower to mid 90s inland. Lows in the 60s to around 70 along the coast. Flow aloft becomes more zonal as the ridge shifts south for early next week, with the surface high pressure shifting to the SE Tuesday as a low pressure system pushes through the deep south. The cold front with this system is expected to move through the area Tuesday night/Wednesday with some showers and storms possible along and ahead of it. Highs lower a couple of degrees with lows increasing a couple of degrees for Monday through Tuesday. Some cooler air moves in under high pressure for the end of the week, with highs in the lower to mid 80s and lows in the mid 50s to mid 60s. Another system then moves over the state for next weekend, with another chance for rain and continued lower temperatures.

AVIATION. VFR conditions are expected through around 09z. Some patchy fog and low clouds will then be possible through 14z. VFR conditions then return through the end of the period. SE flow will become SW/W flow with the sea breeze through the afternoon and increase to generally 8-10kts. Winds become light and variable after 01z.

MARINE. High pressure will be in place across the waters through Monday with generally light SE flow in place and turning onshore near the coast each afternoon. The ridge will shift south on Tuesday, with a cold front moving through the waters Tuesday night/Wednesday, increasing winds a bit and turning them from the S/SW to the NW behind the front through the end of the period. No headlines are expected.

FIRE WEATHER. Humidities mainly inland and south will fall into the upper 20 percent to lower 30 percent range through the rest of this afternoon. A bit more moist conditions for Sunday will keep minimum humidities in the upper 30 percent range. Despite dry soil conditions, winds will be light and no Red Flag conditions are expected.

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.
