Area Forecast Discussion...UPDATED
National Weather Service Tampa Bay Ruskin FL
809 PM EDT TUE MAY 31 2016

.UPDATE...
The majority of the thunderstorm activity is beginning to diminish
however there remain a few areas where it is still raining at
this hour. Similar to yesterday, there remain a handful of outflow
boundaries traversing the area which may help spawn a few
additional showers although we are quickly losing instability as
the sun is beginning to set. Shower/Tstm activity should continue
to diminish in coverage over the next few hours before we clear
out for the overnight. Made a few adjustments to PoPs to account
for current conditions but otherwise the forecast remains mostly
unchanged into the day tomorrow. Overnight temps will be seasonal.

&&

.AVIATION...
VFR overnight and Wed morning with just few-sct clouds. Winds
collapse overnight to light and variable. Another seabreeze is
expected to turn winds onshore during the early afternoon
Wednesday with afternoon showers and storms again favoring the
interior portions of the area.


&&

.MARINE...
Atlantic high pressure ridges across the waters through the
period...with an axis meandering across central FL that lifts into
north FL by the weekend. The gradient remains relaxed with sea
breezes forming the afternoon. Winds and seas rather benign but
will be briefly higher near thunderstorms
