Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Tampa Bay Ruskin FL
843 PM EDT Tue Jul 25 2017

.EVENING UPDATE...
An area of drier air from 850mb to 400mb has greatly
suppressed convection today. A few stray thunderstorms
developed across portions of southern and southwestern
Florida earlier, but these have since diminished as the
airmass becomes more stable with loss of daytime heating.
For the remainder of the night, mild conditions are forecast
with light winds.

The forecast looks to be in good shape. Decreased PoPs over
the area the remainder of the evening as showers and storms
continue to dissipate.

&&

.AVIATION (00z TAFs)...
VFR conditions to prevail through much of the TAF period.
Winds to become light and variable overnight, then shift to
the west to southwest from 16z to 20z Wednesday. Spotty
thunderstorms to develop 18z to 21z, mainly affecting inland
terminals and those along the southwest Florida coast.

&&

.MARINE...
Light winds and seas will continue as high pressure remains
parked over the waters. A weak front will approach the
northern waters by the weekend, with slightly stronger winds
developing over the weekend. This system may also result in
more widespread marine thunderstorms, which will locally
enhance winds and seas.
