National Weather Service Tampa Bay Ruskin FL
750 PM EDT Tue Aug 20 2019

.UPDATE...
Little change to the pattern from yesterday. The Atlantic surface
ridge axis continues to extend across the northern part of the
peninsula, keeping an east to southeast wind flow in place. Some
scattered showers and a few storms linger mainly across southwest
Florida, but these should quiet down in a couple of hours with a
quiet overnight period expected. Wednesday looks to be more of the
same with showers and thunderstorms making their way toward the west
coast through the afternoon and evening hours. The only changes made
to the forecast were for near-term PoPs to account for radar trends.

&&

.AVIATION...
Mainly VFR conditions are expected. Widely scattered showers and a
few storms continue over southwest Florida, so will keep VCTS
mentioned for another hour or two. A quiet overnight period is
expected with light and variable winds. Winds then become more
southeasterly in the morning, with another round of showers and
thunderstorms expected in the afternoon and evening hours.

&&

.MARINE...
High pressure will keep southeast winds in place for the next several
days, although the sea breeze will turn winds onshore near the coast
each afternoon. Winds and seas will be briefly higher near
thunderstorms, but no headlines are expected.
