Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Tampa Bay Ruskin FL
908 AM EDT Fri Apr 28 2017

.UPDATE...
Very similiar to yesterday, morning observations and latest visible
satellite imagery are showing a stratus cloud deck from Tampa Bay
southward, primarily along the coastal counties. These clouds and
fog/mist are expected to burn off in the next couple of hours giving
way to sunny skies. High pressure continues to ridge across the
state and will produce a southerly component wind which will help to
pump moist and warm air over the region. Daytime highs today will
approach record levels with low to mid 90`s expected region wide.
Forecast is on track, so no changes needed at this time.


.AVIATION...
Some patches of fog and low stratus ceilings will continue for the
next couple of hours causing periods of MVFR or potentially IFR/LIFR
conditions. After 15Z, VFR conditions will take control again. A few
showers cannot be ruled out along the sea breezes this afternoon,
mostly around KRSW and KFMY.

&&

.MARINE...
High pressure will continue to build across the eastern Gulf of
Mexico into the weekend, with generally easterly/southeasterly
winds, turning onshore each afternoon with the sea breeze. Nocturnal
surges could bring winds up to cautionary levels during the late
night/early morning hours. An approaching cold front will cause a
longer period of cautionary or possibly low end advisory level winds
Saturday night through Sunday. Winds will then relax during the
early part of the week as the front washes out across the area.
