Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Tampa Bay Ruskin FL
823 PM EDT Thu Jul 20 2017

.UPDATE...
There are a few scattered showers and storms popping up on radar,
but are expected to dissipate over the next couple of hours.
Conditions over land are expected to remain quiet overnight with
minimal rain chances. As we have seen the last couple of days, a
very typical summertime pattern will continue on Friday with
scattered storms over the coastal waters after midnight, with
coverage spreading inland by late morning/early afternoon. The
greatest coverage will be over the inland counties after 18z. The
forecast looks good for now, so no changes needed.

&&

.AVIATION...
VFR conditions expected at all terminals through the night. Most
showers and storms have moved inland away from the terminals.
However, will keep VCTS at all terminals through 03z for any late
evening re-development. Winds will be variable overnight, then
increasing to 5-8 knots tomorrow afternoon. Scattered showers and
thunderstorms can be expected once again tomorrow starting between
15-18z and continuing through the evening hours. No other aviation
impacts expected.

&&

.MARINE...
High pressure is expected to hold over the waters through the
remainder of the week and into the weekend. Very weak gradient will
keep winds less than 10 knots and seas less than 2 feet through the
period. However, higher winds and seas will occur in the vicinity of
thunderstorms which will be the main hazard over the next several
days. Best chance for thunderstorms will likely be during the late
night and early morning hours.
