Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Tampa Bay Ruskin FL 832 PM EST Thu Feb 20 2020

UPDATE. A cold front will move across the region tonight and early Friday accompanied by low clouds and a few showers and bringing an end to our stretch of warm and somewhat humid weather this week. Breezy northerly winds behind the boundary will usher in much cooler drier air Friday with temperatures about 15 to 25 degrees colder than today. The clouds will linger through much of the day in the cold advection pattern, but we should begin to see some breaks of sun return during the afternoon across the Nature Coast and eventually into the central Florida peninsula. Clouds will clear out Friday night as the flow becomes more northeasterly with temperatures dipping into the 30s across the Nature Coast and mostly 40s elsewhere. Winds will be slow to subside during the night though so not expecting to see any frost across the Nature Coast, but will have wind chill values fall into the upper 20s and lower 30s across the Nature Coast, and mid 30s to lower 40s elsewhere. Saturday should remain mostly sunny and cool with highs only climbing into the mid 60s north to lower 70s south.

AVIATION. IFR ceilings are expected to develop from north to south tonight as a cold front moves southward across the region. These ceilings will gradually improve from north to south during the late morning and afternoon hours Friday. A few showers will also be possible which could bring some brief MVFR visibilities. Westerly winds around 5 knots early tonight will shift to northerly at 10 to 15 knots and gusty behind the boundary late tonight and Friday.

MARINE. A cold front will move across the coastal waters tonight and early Friday followed by robust north to northeast winds into Saturday. Small Craft Advisories are out for late tonight into Friday night for the coastal waters and may need to be extended into early Saturday. Will update now to include Tampa Bay and Charlotte Harbor in the SCA for Friday and Friday night. Winds and seas will diminish for Sunday, but then increase once again early next week s high pressure moves out into the western Atlantic Ocean and the next storm system moves into the eastern states.

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.
