Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Tampa Bay Ruskin FL 234 AM EST Fri Dec 6 2019

DISCUSSION. Pleasant late-Fall weather remains today with surface high pressure in control. A cool morning will give way to a mild afternoon with generally clear skies and calm winds, much like yesterday.

As another trough axis propagates across the Eastern half of the country, a surface low pressure system and cold front will push southward into the Gulf of Mexico off the coast of Florida. A weak system to begin with, reinforcing high pressure and an unfavorable upper-level pattern will cause the system to quickly dissipate Sunday into Monday, with little effect on our weather outside of a chance for some showers in northern locations.

Dry and pleasant weather will continue into mid-week with a gradual warming before another system pushes into our area in the Wednesday/Thursday time-frame. Substantial spread exists in how the environment will set up for late next week, leading to different solutions. For now, the forecast is being kept conservative to reflect the potential uncertainty. Details should become more clear as mid-week approaches. What does look more certain is unsettled weather and then another potential cool-down look to be in store.

AVIATION. VFR conditions prevail with light and variable winds through the morning hours becoming WSW later in the afternoon.

MARINE. A low pressure system will push into the Gulf on Saturday, potentially bringing a chance for some showers and slightly higher winds and seas in northern offshore waters, but conditions remain benign otherwise for boaters through the early portion of next week.

FIRE WEATHER. While a weak low pressure system will move into the Gulf tomorrow, little effect will be had on our weather. Conditions remain above critical thresholds through the weekend.

In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
