Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Tampa Bay Ruskin FL 332 AM EDT Fri Aug 14 2020

DISCUSSION. The Atlantic surface ridge axis will continue to extend across the central Florida peninsula for the next couple of days, with scattered to numerous showers and thunderstorms expected each afternoon and evening. The ridge axis will shift southward later this weekend into early next week, with a more southwest flow setting up across the region. This will lead to early morning showers and storms over the Gulf and near the coast, with these then moving inland for the afternoon and evening hours. Global models continue to show troughing building over the region for the middle to late part of the week, with elevated moisture and increased rain chances possible.

AVIATION. VFR conditions are expected through tonight into Friday morning before another round of showers and thunderstorms form over the region through the rest of the day. Will keep VCTS in the forecast for all sites, with brief restrictions possible with storms.

MARINE. High pressure will keep fairly light winds and seas across the region through the next several days. The sea breeze will enhance flow near the coast each afternoon. No headlines are expected though winds and seas will be locally higher near showers and thunderstorms.

FIRE WEATHER. No fire weather concerns as relative humidity values will remain above critical levels. No significant fog is expected.

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.
