Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Tampa Bay Ruskin FL 905 AM EST Fri Jan 17 2020

DISCUSSION. A frontal boundary is draped across the south/central peninsula and will be settling south through the day as high pressure builds into the north. The high pressure will then shift east to over the Atlantic through the weekend, and continue to ridge back across the area. A cold front will then move into north Florida early Sunday morning, and gradually push through the area Sunday. Showers and a few thunderstorms will be possible as it moves through, then some colder air will move in for Tuesday and Wednesday mornings.

Temps for this afternoon are on track to reach into the mid 70s to around 80. Current forecast is on track and have no updates planned.

AVIATION. VFR conditions expected through much of the period, with some drier air expected to move into the area today as high pressure builds. NE winds this morning will become more easterly and increase and become gusty through the late morning and afternoon.

MARINE. Strong NE/E winds will keep the SCA in place for the offshore waters and SCEC for the near shore waters through Saturday morning as high pressure builds in from the north. The pressure gradient will then relax across the area allowing winds to subside for a bit. Then a cold front will move through the area Sunday/Sunday night, with winds and seas increasing to near SCA conditions behind the front for Sunday night/Monday. Current forecast is on track with all of this and have no major changes for the update.

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.
