Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Tampa Bay Ruskin FL Issued by National Weather Service Melbourne FL 954 AM EST Thu Feb 20 2020

UPDATE. Low clouds and patchy fog streaming from the south this morning have started to dissipate and clear the southern portions of the forecast area, while a persisting area is still affecting the Tampa Bay area and north of Hillsborough and Polk counties northward. So a gradient of cloud coverage will continue from mostly cloudy from Levy to Hillsborough/Polk, to partly cloudy for Manatee/Highlands to Lee. Temperatures will also depend on how much sunlight they receive late this morning and afternoon, but these are expected to reach the 80s. A few showers were observed in the long range scan of the TTPA terminal radar moving northward over the coastal waters of the Nature Coast but these were light to moderate. As the day progresses, winds will shift from the southwest and a sea breeze is expected to develop, triggering the development of a few showers over the coastal counties and moving inland through the afternoon. No changes were made to the current forecast.

Prev Discussion. /issued 629 AM EST Thu Feb 20 2020/

AVIATION .

LIFR/IFR conditions are widespread over inland areas and just now making it to the coast, showing up at PGD and SRQ. I have introduced tempo groups at all airports for the next couple hours until the sun can start to lift some of this out.

Prev Discussion . /issued 337 AM EST Thu Feb 20 2020/

DISCUSSION . A positively-tilted trough axis is propagating southeastward from the high plains toward the Florida peninsula as weak high pressure is eroded across the Florida peninsula. The trough is dragging a cold front with it, and this will be arriving on our doorstep late tonight. Because the front will not be arriving until tonight, there is still one more day of a summer-like pattern. Light and variable winds through the morning hours with high dewpoints provide a good setup for interior areas and SWFL to see patchy fog. Once the sun rises, this will quickly dissipate. Temperatures are expected to top out in the 80s once again this afternoon. Some areas may once again be flirting with record high temperatures. Conditions favor a few weak showers developing early, with some subtle convergence. As the light synoptic flow will stick around through the afternoon, the sea breeze is expected to kick in, and a few showers could develop along the boundary and then move inland.

Today's weather conditions contrast sharply with tomorrow. The trough axis and attendant cold front will push through quickly tonight. Not much rain is expected to accompany this front, with the bulk of the upper support staying to our north and east. Some showers are possible in northern counties, but most people will likely only notice low clouds. A colder, continental airmass originating from Canada will quickly take the place, and a northerly wind will allow the cooler air to funnel southward. Due to the strong thermal gradient, gusty winds will also return, and stick around until tomorrow night. It will feel much cooler on Friday morning, with some areas being 20 degrees cooler. Temperatures won't warm up much either through the day with cloud cover persisting for many places through the afternoon.

As is typical when a front passes, Saturday morning is expected to be the coldest morning. A gradual warmup will begin to take place thereafter, and 80s are back in the forecast to kick off the work week as high pressure shifts east and winds turn ESE. Another front is expected to arrive next Thursday, and this will cool temps down once more.

MARINE . Fairly calm and benign boating conditions today will give way to advisory conditions as winds and seas increase as a cold front arrives overnight. Winds and seas will remain elevated into the weekend before gradually subsiding with benign conditions returning.

FIRE WEATHER . Some patchy fog is possible through the morning hours, but will quickly burn off as the sun rises. A few showers are possible today as the seabreeze develops and migrates inland. A cold front arrives tonight, but should remain dry. Outside of some higher dispersions, no other fire weather concerns exist at this time, with RH values remaining above critical thresholds.

Prev Discussion . /issued 126 AM EST Thu Feb 20 2020/

AVIATION . Some temporary reductions in CIGS/VSBY possible through the morning hours as low clouds and patchy fog continue to develop. By mid- morning, conditions should improve to VFR. There is the possibility for some showers, but the likelihood is too low for mentioning at this time. A front will be moving through near the end of the forecast period, bringing lowering CIGS and northwesterly winds near the end of the forecast period.
