Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Tampa Bay Ruskin FL 310 AM EDT Thu Apr 2 2020

SHORT TERM (Today - Friday). Stable dry conditions under high pressure surface and aloft building in over the eastern U.S. will maintain pleasant dry weather across the entire forecast area through Friday with mainly clear skies and near seasonal level temperatures. After cooler temperatures in the 40s and 50s early this morning overnight lows will moderate back into the 50s tonight into Friday morning and then 60s by the weekend as the low level north to northeast wind flow veers to the east, with daytime highs today in the upper 70s to lower 80s warming into the lower to mid 80s on Friday with even warmer readings expected for the upcoming weekend and beyond.

LONG TERM (Friday night - Wednesday). Mid level ridging . from the Gulf of Mexico to eastern Canada . dominates the eastern U.S. through the middle of next week then begins to flatten. However a weak embedded short wave trough slides along the northern Gulf Coast late Sat into Sun and dampens out over northern FL by early Mon. Surface high pressure initially centered in eastern Canada and extending down into the Gulf of Mexico slowly drops across New England and tracks south over the Atlantic . while continuing to reach across the Gulf of Mexico.

Deep layer ridging will be in control of the area with stable . dry . and warm air. Temperatures run on the warm side of normal. An exception might be during Sunday when the short wave trough approaches and could bring some low odds of rain for the northern Nature Coast. Prevailing winds gradually go from northeasterly to southwesterly but with a shift to onshore near the coast most afternoons.

AVIATION. VFR will prevail at all terminals during the next 24 hours. North to northeast winds in the 5 to 7 knot range the remainder of the morning will become northwest at 8 to 10 knots after 18Z. Light northeast to east winds are expected after 02Z tonight.

MARINE. High pressure building in over the area will support lighter winds and lower seas over the Gulf waters for the next several days with a weak pressure pattern supporting an onshore sea breeze component developing along the coast each afternoon. No headlines are expected.

FIRE WEATHER. Very dry air over the region will support long durations of humidity values below 35 percent across the interior sections of the forecast area today through Saturday. These low humidity values combined with high ERC values will support moderate to high fire dangers across the forecast area through the period, but with sustained winds forecast to remain less than 15 mph no Red Flag conditions are expected. A slow increase in low level moisture is expected on Sunday and into early next week with no other fire weather hazards expected at this time.

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.
