Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Tampa Bay Ruskin FL
831 PM EDT TUE MAY 24 2016

.UPDATE (Rest of tonight)...
Sea breeze and outflow boundary interactions managed to spark a
few showers over southeast Polk and Highlands counties as well as
over Citrus and Hernando counties late in the afternoon but
overall dry conditions prevailed across the forecast area due to
very dry and stable air aloft over the region. As for the rest of
tonight expect lingering scattered cu fields along the sea breeze
and outflow boundaries to erode away in the next few hours as
loss of daytime heating continues with pleasant dry conditions
under mostly clear skies expected overnight. Will remove evening
rain chance wording from the zones in a mid evening update
otherwise no other grid or zone changes expected at this time.


VFR will prevail at all terminal sites during the next 24 hours.


The onshore sea breeze component will collapse in the next hour or
so with loss of daytime heating with an easterly surge in the 10
to 15 knot range near shore and increasing to near 15 knots
offshore returning to the waters overnight as surface high
pressure across the northern peninsula and northeast Gulf remains
in control. Ongoing forecast has a good handle on things...with no
changes expected in the next forecast issuance around 10 PM.
