Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Tampa Bay Ruskin FL 818 AM EST Mon Feb 24 2020

UPDATE. Existing forecast package on track with no necessary adjustments. Weak ridging aloft overspreads the region with W/SW flow while surface high over the western Atlantic is providing S/SE low-level flow over the state. 12Z upper-air sounding reflects this well with S/SE flow extending up to around 850 mb, along with a pronounced inversion and subsidence within the 850-700 mb layer and also around 500 mb. As a result, partly cloudy skies expected today with highs in the upper 70s to low 80s and S/SE winds. Increasing clouds are likely across the upper Nature Coast late in the day ahead of a frontal system expected to affect the region Tuesday into Wednesday although increasing rain chances are not expected until tonight.

AVIATION. VFR through period with S/SE flow becoming primarily S during the day with higher gusts during afternoon.

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.
