Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Tampa Bay Ruskin FL
846 PM EDT Mon Apr 24 2017

.UPDATE...
Water vapor imagery this evening shows a closed upper-level low
centered over the Georgia/South Carolina region, with the associated
broad surface low along the Carolina coast. A cold front is south of
the forecast area, with breezy west to northwest winds continuing for
the next few hours before lessening for the overnight period. Some
cloudiness is likely to persist tonight with winds off the Gulf, but
overall the weather will remain quiet. Lows will be several degrees
cooler than yesterday with dew points forecast to be almost 10
degrees lower. This will give us a pleasantly cool morning and will
set up a pretty nice day, with mostly sunny skies returning by the
end of the day. Made only minor updates to the forecast for the
evening update.

&&

.AVIATION...
VFR conditions continue this evening and should generally prevail
through the forecast period. There is a possibility for a few hours
of MVFR cigs overnight, but probabilities are currently too low to
include in the forecast, so this will continue to be monitored. Gusty
west winds will diminish overnight and then we will see a
continuation of west to northwest winds through Tuesday.

&&

.MARINE...
Gusty west to northwest winds to exercise caution levels will
continue for through the next few hours, and then drop below
headlines for the rest of the overnight and through Tuesday. No
headlines are expected through the rest of the week.
