Gentlemen I think we can say we have survived another Florida Summer - Area forecast discussion National Weather Service Tampa Bay Ruskin Florida 157 PM EDT Sat Oct 13 2012 Short term (tonight - monday)...band of light showers/sprinkles moving toward the southwest may briefly dampen the ground across the interior central and southwest this afternoon. Otherwise continued mainly dry weather through tonight. Moisture deepens some on Sunday so chances of measurable precipitation will increase a bit. For now will depict slight chance of showers mainly from Polk County southwestward across Manatee and points south. On Monday...a frontal boundary will be dropping into the northern Gulf Coast states but there will be no return flow of humid air ahead of it. That should keep rain chances on the low side considering the upper-level support and the surface boundary... but still expect about a 20 percent chance of showers at any time on Monday. Long term (monday night - saturday)...some changes were made to the extended forecast today. Models are showing a cooler air mass moving in behind the front...and mex guidance has shown cooler temperatures for the last few runs. There may be some return of milder air and moisture on Thursday before the next cold front approaches on Friday. We will likely have to add some rain chances for Friday in the next forecast package.
