Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Tampa Bay Ruskin FL
832 AM EDT Mon Jul 24 2017

.DISCUSSION...
A little drier air has moved into the southern half of the
area overnight and is suppressing a lot of the activity that
we have seen the past few mornings over the coastal waters
and along the coast. Current forecast on track with the
lower rain chances today. Temperatures will also be a little
warmer as a result with highs on track to reach into the
upper 80s to lower 90s. No update planned.

&&

.AVIATION...
Less thunderstorm activity this morning due to some drier
air moving into the area. Will still see some scattered
storms develop with some heating, and have VCTS starting in
the late morning/noon through early evening. SW flow
becoming more westerly late in the afternoon, then light and
variable overnight. Conditions should be mainly VFR through
the period except brief MVFR to IFR conditions with any
storm moving over a terminal.

&&

.MARINE...
High pressure ridge axis in place across south Florida will
meander north to across central Florida Tuesday. SW flow
will become more SE across the southern waters as a result.
Dry air that moved into the area overnight will linger for
the next couple of days and keep rain chances mainly in the
scattered category with the highest chances north. Current
forecast is on track and have little change for the update.
