Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Tampa Bay Ruskin FL 845 PM EDT Wed Jul 8 2020

UPDATE. Quiet evening for early July with only a few small light showers here and there. The west to northwest flow will persist overnight and Thursday with more isolated to scattered convection expected to develop over the northeast Gulf of Mexico overnight and beginning to move onshore late tonight and early Thursday morning from around Tampa Bay northward. This convection will continue to move/develop inland during the late morning and afternoon hours with highest chances over the Nature Coast and interior counties where moisture will be deepest. Overall the current forecast looks ok with no changes planned.

AVIATION. VFR conditions are expected through period although brief MVFR/local IFR restrictions may occur with any shower or thunderstorm affecting terminals Thursday. West to northwest winds will diminish to less than 10 knots tonight then increase back to around 10 knots late Thursday morning with some higher gusts in the afternoon.

MARINE. High pressure stretching over the Gulf of Mexico with a general westerly flow is expected through forecast period. Winds and seas will remain below headline criteria, although any thunderstorms could produce locally hazardous boating conditions.

Prev Discussion. /issued 305 PM EDT Wed Jul 8 2020/

DISCUSSION . Similar pattern characterized by westerly flow continues across the area with high pressure ridging extending across the southern peninsula from the central Gulf and low pressure to our north over much of the Southeast CONUS. Setup will continue to favor showers and thunderstorms along coastal areas early then migrating inland through the afternoon hours. Flow today has featured a bit of a northerly component as the low pressure area off the Carolinas gradually organizes. The Gulf ridge will shift west into the weekend while Eastern CONUS troughing is reinforced, leading to continued west to northwest flow across the region which will extend into next week. Therefore, can expect shower/storm chances to remain focused over coastal locations during overnight and morning hours while shifting inland into the afternoon hours through most of the forecast period. Expect afternoon highs in the low/mid 90s with heat index values in the triple digits, possibly approaching advisory levels for a few locations.

FIRE WEATHER . High pressure over the Gulf of Mexico will maintain west to northwest winds through most of the forecast period. Isolated to scattered showers and thunderstorms will push onshore during the morning hours, becoming more numerous and shifting inland through the afternoon. Minimum RH values expected to remain above critical levels, with elevated dispersion indices expected again this afternoon.

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