Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Tampa Bay Ruskin FL
845 PM EDT Mon Mar 27 2017

Dry and stable conditions courtesy of high pressure from
the Atlantic extending southwest across the central Florida
peninsula lead to a warm and dry day across the entire
forecast area with temperatures in the lower to mid 80s.
Little change is expected during the next few days as high
pressure sinks south across the region with warm and dry
conditions continuing. As for the rest of tonight clear
skies and light winds may support some patchy fog overnight
into the early morning hours on Tuesday, otherwise dry and
mild conditions will prevail. Current forecast is on track
with no evening update required at this time.


Some MVFR visibilities from some patchy fog may impact KLAL,
KPGD, KFMY, and KRSW terminals between 08-13Z, otherwise VFR
is expected at all terminals during the next 24 hours. Light
winds are expected the rest of tonight into early Tuesday
morning with the bay and sea breezes redeveloping after 18Z.


High pressure will provide tranquil boating conditions over
the Gulf waters the few days with light east to southeast
winds overnight and during the morning hours with a weak
pressure pattern favoring an onshore sea breeze component
developing along the coast each afternoon. Ongoing forecast
has a good handle on all of this, with no changes planned
for the next forecast issuance around 9 PM.


Gulf waters...None.
