Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Tampa Bay Ruskin FL 103 AM EST Tue Jan 28 2020

AVIATION. Some MVFR ceilings in place across the area will persist through around 14z and skies should then lift and scatter out. NE winds turn to the N/NW in the afternoon for a few hours, then return to the NE after 00z.

Prev Discussion. /issued 820 PM EST Mon Jan 27 2020/

UPDATE . Latest RAP and surface analysis shows a closed surface low about 80 or so miles west of Tampa. A stalled frontal boundary extends across Central Florida. Low-level southwest flow is resulting in weak isentropic upglide along this boundary, leading to low-topped sprinkles north of the I-4 corridor. These will dissipate by midnight as the low drifts southeast and drier, northerly wind prevail across much of the area. The dense cloud cover will shift farther south as the low approaches SW Florida overnight. A sprinkle also cannot be ruled out across this area but overall very low chances. Otherwise, slightly warmer and drier conditions are expected tomorrow with highs in the 70s . Very minimal changes were needed to the ongoing forecast tonight.

AVIATION . 00Z Issuance . VFR expected with the exception of southern terminals where lower CIGS are possible through the overnight hours, causing periods of MVFR conditions. Winds out of the northeast generally AOB 7 knots.

MARINE . An isolated sprinkle or two over the waters through remainder of the evening. As the low moves southeast over the Peninsula, northeast winds will briefly reach cautionary levels overnight across the central offshore waters . A second weak surface low will move across the northeast Gulf waters late on Wednesday with a chance for showers possible. A stronger low will move into the region Friday into Saturday with marine hazards possible, especially behind the system as high pressure builds in across the Gulf.

Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data.

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