Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Tampa Bay Ruskin FL
222 PM EST Thu Jan 21 2021

.DISCUSSION...
High pressure over the region today will shift eastward as a weak
front moves into northern Florida. This front will linger north of
the area through Friday, before shifting southward through Saturday.
This will lead to a slight chance for showers, though these should be
dissipating as the front moves south. Not much impact for the local
area other than some extra cloud cover for the weekend, but this is
mainly for the northern half of the forecast area.

High pressure north of the region will move over the eastern
seaboard and then out into the eastern Atlantic Ocean through early
next week as another storm system passes by well north of the area.
With the surface high continuing to extend back westward over the
peninsula and high pressure continuing aloft, temperatures will warm
into next week, with highs in the upper 70s to lower 80s through the
middle part of the week.

&&

.AVIATION...
VFR conditions are expected through the forecast period, though some
patchy fog could occur at KLAL late tonight into early Friday
morning.

&&

.MARINE...
High pressure over the region today will shift eastward as a weak
cold front moves south through Friday and Saturday. Only a few
showers will be possible with this boundary, otherwise no marine
concerns.

&&

.FIRE WEATHER...
High pressure will remain over the region as a weak front moves into
northern Florida. Overall, no fire weather concerns as relative
humidity values will remain above critical levels through the next
several days. Some patchy fog will be possible each night.
