National Weather Service Tampa Bay Ruskin FL
725 PM EDT Fri Apr 20 2018

.AVIATION (21/00Z through 22/00Z)...
Main forecast concern for remainder of the evening and
overnight will be the evolution of a large area of MVFR cigs
to the north of the I-4 corridor. This region should expand
to the southwest after sunset, but confidence in its impacts
around KTPA/KPIE/KRSW are lower than average. Have included
MVFR conditions after midnight as these areas of lower
ceilings in NE flow tend to be more aggressive than most NWP
will show. Onshore W/NW flow at 00Z will shift back to NE/E
after 03Z with the decay of the seabreeze. Any early morning
MVFR cigs lift to allow for a sct-bkn deck with bases above
4KFT for much of the day. Sea-breeze development should turn
winds onshore along the immediate coast. A few showers along
this sea-breeze are possible inland...with KLAL seeing the
greatest potential for a later afternoon shower.
