Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Tampa Bay Ruskin FL 407 AM EST Wed Jan 29 2020

DISCUSSION. Weak ridging is in place across the area this morning, with an area of low pressure in place over the northern Gulf on the LA coast. This low will quickly push eastward today, with the moisture ahead of it bringing some rain chances across the area this afternoon and evening and clearing from the west overnight as the low crosses the state into the Atlantic. Dry air then moves into the area in its wake, and remains through Thursday night. Moisture then returns Friday as low pressure develops in the southern Gulf and lifts northeast across the area later Friday and the attendant cold front moves south through the area Saturday, bringing periods of rain across the area through the period. Clearing happens behind the front as dry high pressure builds into the area. The high pressure center will gradually shift east of the area but continue to ridge across the state through the end of the period.

High temperatures generally remain in the upper 60s to upper 70s range through the week, with lows in the mid 40s to lower 60s.

AVIATION. MVFR cloudiness is in place across the southern terminals. This will be gradually transitioning to the SE through the overnight hours. Additional cloudiness will then be moving into the area in the afternoon with some showers possible later this afternoon and evening as an area of low pressure moves across the area from the Gulf. MVFR conditions will be possible in the showers. Easterly flow will turn to the SW in the afternoon, then back to the SE.

MARINE. Winds and seas will remain below headline criteria through Friday night, as low pressure moves across the state this evening, weak ridging builds Thursday, and stronger low pressure passes over the state Friday. The cold front moves through the waters Saturday, with winds and seas increasing to near advisory levels behind it as high pressure builds into the area. Winds then subside Sunday.

FIRE WEATHER. No concerns.

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.
