area forecast discussion
national weather service tampa bay ruskin fl
804 am edt Fri aug 23 2019

Update
Quiet morning across the region with just a few clouds here and
there. A weak area of low pressure along the southeast florida
coast is expected to drift north over the florida peninsula
through tonight with an area of deeper moisture associated with it
spreading over most of the region. This combined with daytime
heating will bring an increase in rain chances to the forecast
area, especially around and south of the interstate 4 corridor,
this afternoon and early evening. Overall the current forecast
looks on track with no major changes planned.

Aviation
Some areas of MVFR ceilings will be possible mid to late morning
as daytime heating gets underway, then MVFR ifr conditions will be
possible in scattered to numerous showers and thunderstorms this
afternoon and evening. Northeast to north winds at 5 to 10 knots
are expected through the forecast period with brief gusty winds in
convection.

Marine
An inverted trough and weak area of low pressure will move
northwest into the area over the next couple of days. A general
northeasterly flow will shift to northerly near the coast this
afternoon and Saturday afternoon. Winds and seas will generally
remain below headline criteria, although daily thunderstorms will
produce locally hazardous boating conditions.

discussion...

easterly flow regime remains in place across the area today as
atlantic ridge is positioned north of the area. To the southeast,
an inverted trough tropical wave is moving towards the southern
fl peninsula. This will bring deeper moisture over the southern
portion of the forecast area today which will allow for likely
pops across SW florida this afternoon and evening. Across the
nature coast, atmospheric moisture remains lower and thusly rain
chances there should be in the 20-30 percent range. A weak
seabreeze will likely develop and push inland in the vicinity of
the i-75 corridor which could spark some shower and storm
development in this area. Any convection will move west out into
the eastern gulf during the evening hours with skies becoming
mostly clear to partly cloudy overnight. Similar weather is
expected on Saturday with deeper moisture perhaps shifting a bit
further north.

During Sunday and Monday a weakening frontal boundary will drift
into the southeast states with the models developing a weak low,
perhaps tropical in nature, off the florida east coast that moves
northeast away from the region. This pattern will setup a more
south to southwest flow across the area and with ample moisture
remaining in place we'll continue to see unsettled weather with
scattered to numerous showers and thunderstorms. As is typical
with this setup the best timing for the convection will be over
the coastal waters and near the coast during the late night and
morning hours then shifting inland during the afternoon and
evening.

Temperatures will run near climatological norms through the
period.

Fire weather... Sufficient low level moisture will keep relative
humidity values above critical levels through the week with no red
flag conditions expected. No significant fog is expected through
the period.
