Another zero on the rainfall reading for me yesterday. Storms threatened to come my way a couple of times out of the southeast, but they just don't like to cross Waccasassa Bay for some reason. Anyway, it is looking more and more hopeful for the Holiday weekend that we might get some breaks in the weather. Sunday looks pretty poor, but Saturday and Monday hopefully will end up being normal Summer days with scattered storms in the afternoon.

We got hit w a wicked storm last night. We got 1.5” in a half hr started around 9.15p. Lightning and thunder too. I’m certainly not liking our prospects for the next 5-7 days or for Fl and who ever might be impacted. My hope that 90L moves quickly on doesn’t appear, as of now to be the case. I understand what being on the dirty sides means now. This is no joke.

Area Forecast Discussion
Issued by NWS Tampa Bay Area, FL
Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Tampa Bay Ruskin FL
744 AM EDT Fri May 25 2018

.Prev Discussion... /issued 301 AM EDT Fri May 25 2018/

SHORT TERM (Today - Saturday)...
Continued uncertainty in models with regard to system off
the Yucatan and in Southern Gulf moving northward into the
holiday weekend. This is quite common with these types of
complex and disorganized potential sub-tropical or tropical
systems. So, forecast confidence is slightly below average.

A broad weak upper trough will continue across the central
Gulf with modest dry air wrapping into the W side of trough
from the Desert SW and W Gulf as seen in water vapor imagery
while tropical moisture persists over the N Carib. Warm sea
surface temperatures near the tip of Yucatan will allow
convective development but a sharp gradient into cooler and
shallow warmer SSTs is expected to persist in C and N Gulf.
Latest discussions from NHC and WPC would keep the system
west of the FL Peninsula but the local area would be on wet
side of feature favoring a strong warm conveyor/convective
processes from Cuba through the FL peninsula in moist and
unstable environment.

For today expect afternoon shower and thunderstorm activity
along bay and west coast sea breezes that should diminish
in the evening hours. On Saturday, deepening southeast to
south flow and PWATs over 2 inches to produce rounds of
convection through the day with additional rainfall totals
on already saturated soils to exacerbate the flooding concerns.

Beach conditions over the holiday weekend may be hazardous
with large breaking waves, dangerous rip currents and deadly
lightning.

Will continue to monitor the possible tropical development
of the area of low pressure for weekend impacts here.

LONG TERM (Saturday Night - Thursday)...
A trough of low pressure over the central and eastern Gulf
of Mexico will continue to strengthen during the second half
of the weekend and into Monday as the associated surface
low moves north out of the western Caribbean. Although most
models keep the center of this low well west of the Florida
Peninsula, deep moisture east of the center will spread
across the forecast area, with precipitable water values of
2.0 to 2.5 inches expected, resulting in numerous to
widespread showers and thunderstorms. In addition to the
rain, a tighter pressure gradient over the Florida Peninsula
on Sunday as the low passes to the west will result in
breezy winds, particularly near the coast. The surface low
is expected to move into the central Gulf Coast Monday and
Monday night and continue to slowly trek north and dissipate
through the week, as Atlantic surface ridging builds back
in across Florida. This will allow atmospheric moisture to
moderate slightly, but precipitable water values will still
remain around 2 inches through the week, producing scattered
to numerous showers and storms.

With the prolonged wet pattern, 3 to 5 inches of rain could
fall across widespread areas along the west coast of
Florida through the next week, with localized areas
potentially seeing higher totals. Since some locations
already have well saturated ground from previous rains, this
additional rainfall could lead to both areal flooding and
river flooding.

The widespread showers and cloudy skies on Sunday will keep
high temperatures several degrees below normal, generally
topping out in the low to mid 80s. Temperatures will then
gradually climb back up to near to slightly below normal by
the middle of the week.

MARINE...
Weak W Atlantic High pressure exiting the region with
afternoon seabreeze thunderstorms today to move offshore
during the evening hours. Tropical wave and developing
surface feature expected to lift north from the Yucatan
Peninsula tonight through Saturday with increasingly
hazardous southerly winds and seas in E Gulf with widespread
showers and thunderstorms. Sunday through Monday hazardous
winds may approach gale force at times late Saturday through
Sunday. Small craft should remain in port until conditions
improve as conditions may change quickly. SW-S flow to
continue through mid week with gradient weakening producing
lighter winds and seas.

FIRE WEATHER...
Abundant moisture, high humidity values and scattered to
numerous showers and thunderstorms are expected over the
area through the holiday weekend as a tropical system
develops and moves through the central Gulf of Mexico.

Good morning, all, in anticipation for some weather.

Have a safe trip, JohnZ. I'm off to Jax this morning; heading back Tues. My parents' dog (pit-mix) loves the mudholes in the nearby dog park (as in running and diving in!), so looking for a little entertainment at some point this weekend! Smile

Trace, zero, and trace for the last 3 days. It literally jumped over me last night. Ok to dry a bit, but the bugs have come out pretty heavily.

Very nice loop Aug. You up for a brewski?

Good luck everyone and stay safe for the weather ahead.

That is possible JR (brewski). Guess it depends on 3 W's - when, where, and WEATHER.

Here's the latest 12z model guidance.

Subtropical Storm Alberto Discussion Number 1
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL AL012018
1000 AM CDT Fri May 25 2018

The broad low pressure system that the NHC has been tracking for
the past several days over the Yucatan Peninsula has finally moved
offshore over the waters of the northwestern Caribbean Sea.
Although the system possesses multiple low-level circulations, the
overall larger circulation has improved since yesterday. Given that
the system has been interacting with a sharp upper-level trough,
the strongly sheared low has been designated a subtropical storm.
The initial intensity is based on buoy and ship observations of
30-35 kt. Ship 3ETA7 located just northeast of the center at 1100Z
reported 45-kt winds at 50 meters elevation. Those winds equate to
35-40 kt at 10 meters elevation. An Air Force Reserve Hurricane
Hunter Aircraft is scheduled to investigate Alberto later this
afternoon and provide more information on the storm's structure and
intensity.

The initial motion estimate is an uncertain 020/05 kt. The broad
inner-core wind field and multiple swirls makes the short-term
motion forecast a little tricky. However, a large subtropical ridge
to the east should generally induce a slow north to north-
northeastward motion for the next 24 hours or so. After that, the
ridge across the western Atlantic and Florida, along with a
mid/upper-level low forecast to develop over the central Gulf of
Mexico, should result in a faster northward motion at 36-48 hours,
followed by a gradual turn toward the northwest around the
northern fringe of the aforementioned mid/upper-level low. By 96
hours, the cyclone is forecast to slow down significantly as it
nears the north-central Gulf Coast due to a large weakness in the
subtropical ridge forecast to develop over the Deep South. The
official forecast track closely follows the consensus models TVCN
and HCCA.

Given the broad inner-core wind field and belligerent westerly wind
shear forecast to persist for the next 48 hours or so, only gradual
intensification is expected. By 72 hours, however, when the cyclone
is forecast to move slowly over above-normal SSTs of 28-29C and into
an upper-level col and weak wind shear, some additional
strengthening could occur. For now, the intensity forecast will
remain conservative due to possible intrusion of dry mid-level air
before landfall, and closely follows the HCCA consensus model.

KEY MESSAGES:

1. Regardless of its exact track and intensity, Alberto is expected
to produce heavy rainfall and flash flooding over the northeastern
Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico, western Cuba, southern Florida and the
Florida Keys. Rainfall and flooding potential will increase across
the central Gulf Coast region and the southeastern United States
later this weekend and early next week when Alberto is expected to
slow down after it moves inland.

2. Alberto could bring tropical storm conditions and storm surge to
portions of the central and eastern Gulf Coast later this weekend
and early next week, although it is too soon to specify the exact
location and magnitude of these impacts. Residents in these areas
should monitor the progress of Alberto, as tropical storm and storm
surge watches may be required later today or tonight.

3. Dangerous surf and rip current conditions are affecting portions
of the Yucatan Peninsula and western Cuba and will likely spread
along the eastern and central U.S. Gulf Coast later this weekend.

...FLOOD WATCH IN EFFECT FROM SATURDAY MORNING THROUGH SUNDAY
EVENING...

The National Weather Service in Miami has issued a

* Flood Watch for a portion of South Florida, including the
following areas, Coastal Broward, Coastal Collier, Coastal
Miami-Dade, Coastal Palm Beach, Far South Miami-Dade, Glades,
Hendry, Inland Broward, Inland Collier, Inland Miami-Dade,
Inland Palm Beach, Mainland Monroe, Metro Broward, Metro
Miami- Dade, and Metro Palm Beach.

* From Saturday morning through Sunday evening

* Widespread rainfall amounts of 4 to 8 inches are expected due to
deep tropical moisture streaming northward into South Florida.
Locally much higher amounts are possible. Rainfall of this
magnitude may lead to flooding.

* Grounds are fairly saturated from rainfall earlier in the week
so additional rainfall will more easily runoff and lead to
flooding. Flooding of canals, streets, and underpasses, as well
as other drainage areas and low-lying spots can be expected.
The hardest hit areas may see water intruding on vulnerable
structures and causing impassable travel lanes and roadways.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A Flood Watch means there is a potential for flooding based on
current forecasts.

You should monitor later forecasts and be alert for possible
Flood Warnings. Those living in areas prone to flooding should be
prepared to take action should flooding develop.

Largo - FYI - the cone is on the NHC page. This image is a probability map of receiving TS force winds. Your area is 5-10% of receiving TS winds based on the legend. 90-95% of not receiving.

18z model guidance is in. Mobile area (where's gomey!) is likely the landfall area give or take a little adjustment east/west in time. A few loopty loop scenarios out there which is somewhat interesting.

Afternoon all!

Hey Aug, I think those loopty loops are scenarios based on the ridge building west and possibly above the system - shoving it back around and south into the gulf.

Well, canceled my long weekend on the water plans.  Figured that even if we don't get the main part of the storm it would still be cloudy and rainy.  Grrr.
GFS bottoms out at 987 before landfall. I guess New Orleans will be trying out their new storm locks.

Hey StPete.... bummer you needed to cancel your water plans, but that was smart. It wouldn't be enjoyable anyways, wondering if something was going to blow up over you out on the water.
