Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Tampa Bay Ruskin FL 900 AM EDT Wed Aug 5 2020

FOR THE MORNING UPDATE. Scattered showers and a few thunderstorms this morning over the coastal waters are primarily along a land breeze boundary that developed overnight and pushed just offshore. However a few showers/thunderstorms have advected onshore over southwest Florida early this morning.

12Z TBW sounding still shows warm relatively dry air aloft over west central and southwest Florida along with a conditionally unstable atmosphere. Even with the dry air aloft, PCPW value of 1.73 inches still indicative of sufficient deep layer moisture for scattered to numerous showers and thunderstorms today. Boundary layer winds from the south to southwest will promote scattered showers and thunderstorms developing over the coastal counties mainly from the Tampa area and south as the west coast sea breeze boundary begins to develop and push slowly inland. Gradient is fairly weak over the peninsula and with the general southerly boundary layer flow, the sea breeze boundary may only push about 30 to 40 miles inland this afternoon to around or just east of the Hillsborough/Polk county line. The east coast sea breeze should make its way across the peninsula during the day and collide with the west coast sea breeze during the late afternoon hours increasing areal coverage of storms and providing a convective boost to thunderstorm activity with a few strong storms possible. Given the dry air aloft, gusty winds possible with the stronger storms. The storms may push back to the west toward the coast during the late afternoon and evening . then dissipate by midnight.

TBW WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. FL . None. Gulf waters . None.

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.
