Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Tampa Bay Ruskin FL
427 AM EDT Sun Apr 23 2017

.SHORT TERM (Today-Monday)...
An upper trough will be moving over south Florida today as
an upper low pushes into the deep south tonight. The upper
low will then move over GA/N FL Monday. At the surface, a
weak trough will lift over south Florida today and bring a
chance to likely rain chances across much of the area with
the highest pops south and inland this afternoon. As the
trough pushes east, a cold front will then approach the area
from the NW. The front will then move through the area late
Sunday night through Monday afternoon with just a slight
chance of rain with the front. Winds will increase for
Monday and be gusty/breezy. Temperatures will be in the mid
to upper 80s this afternoon for highs and in the lower 60s
to lower 70s for lows tonight. Highs Monday will be cooler
behind the front in the upper 70s to lower 80s.

.LONG TERM (Monday Night - Saturday)...
A deep closed low and attendant surface low moving off the southeast
U.S. coast at the start of the period will lift slowly north along
the eastern seaboard through Wednesday night. In its wake zonal flow
aloft, drier air, and weak surface high pressure will support
pleasant dry weather across the entire forecast area Tuesday through
Thursday with mainly clear nights and mostly sunny days expected
through the period.

During Friday through Saturday upper level ridging will build in
over the western Atlantic offshore the Carolinas and extending
southwest across Florida in response to an amplifying upper level
trough over the western U.S.. Attendant surface high pressure from
the Atlantic extending west across the northern peninsula will
support a low level southeast wind flow across the region. A slow
increase in moisture within the southeast flow may support some
isolated showers (Pops 20 percent) along the sea breeze boundaries
each day during the afternoon and early evening hours, otherwise
increasingly warm and humid conditions will prevail.

Near normal temperatures on Tuesday and Wednesday will soar to well
above normal Thursday through Saturday as upper ridging builds in
over the region with highs reaching into the mid and upper 80s along
the coast, and lower 90s over inland locations each afternoon, with
overnight lows in the mid and upper 60s inland areas, and around 70
to the lower 70 along the coast.


Some MVFR conditions will be possible overnight with light
winds in place. Winds will become SW in the late morning
with afternoon showers and a few thunderstorms possible
mainly across the southern terminals as winds continue to
turn to the W/NW.


A weak area of low pressure will be moving over south
Florida today as a cold front also approaches the area from
the NW. The front will move through the waters Sunday
night-Monday. Showers and a few thunderstorms will be
possible with these systems and winds will increase on
Monday with the front. High pressure will then build over
the waters and be in place through the rest of the week. An
SCEC may be necessary on Monday as winds increase, but
otherwise no headlines are expected through the rest of the


No concerns for the next couple of days as conditions will
be moist with rain chances.

1 meter dish
  • The system receives data via the Emergency Managers Weather Information Network EMWIN system via satellite on GOES-13 and a Zephyrus WX14 next generation satellite receiver. We also utilize a Unidata LDM powered NOAAPORT CBand satellite system as a source of data with a Novra S300 satellite receiver. We use Weather Message (WxMesg) as our data processing software to take all this bulk data and power this page and our e-mail & SMS warning alert system.

  • If you are interested in a internet based EMWIN warning system of your own, you'll first need to download a EMWIN software package such as Real EMWIN, Weather Message, or Interwarn and then connect to our public ByteBlaster server. The high speed national feed via our downlink (19200bps) is available at on TCP port 2211 (** New Port - was 1000 **).

  • If you are a LDM user looking for our LDM product feed of the EMWIN data stream from Satellite, just contact us with the IP address of your LDM server.
