Surf Zone Forecast for West Central And Southwest Florida
National Weather Service Tampa Bay Area - Ruskin FL
454 AM EST Wed Dec 13 2017

...HIGH RISK OF RIP CURRENTS THROUGH MID AFTERNOON...

.SYNOPSIS...
High pressure building in over the region today will support
ample sunshine and cool dry conditions at all area beaches
today. The high will build in over south Florida tonight then
move east into the Atlantic on Thursday. As the high moves east
a southwest wind flow will develop over the area tonight into
Thursday with a warming trend expected. Cool air advection will
keep temperatures on the cool side today with highs topping out
in the lower to mid 60s. On Thursday warmer temperatures are
expected with afternoon highs climbing into the lower 70s.
Enhanced wave action from the recent strong onshore flow while
diminishing today will maintain some high surf with a high risk
of rip currents continuing along area beaches today through mid
afternoon, with improving conditions expected tonight and
Thursday.
