... High rip current risk in effect from 10 PM EST this evening
through Friday afternoon...

The National Weather Service in Tampa Bay Ruskin has issued a
high rip current risk, which is in effect from 10 PM EST this
evening through Friday afternoon.

* Rip current timing... increasing wave action will create rip
currents tonight through Friday.

* Rip current impacts... life threatening rip currents are likely
through Monday evening. Always swim near a lifeguard, and
never swim alone!

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Rip currents are powerful channels of water flowing quickly away
from shore... which occur most often at low spots or breaks in The
Sandbar and in the vicinity of structures such as groins...
jetties and piers. For maximum safety... swim near a lifeguard.
Pay attention to flags and signs.

If you become caught in a rip current... Yell for help. Remain
calm... do not exhaust yourself and stay afloat while waiting for
help. If you have to swim out of a rip current... swim parallel to
shore and back toward the beach when possible. Do not attempt to
swim directly against a rip current as you will tire quickly.

... Strong thunderstorms approaching west-central Florida coast...

A line of strong thunderstorms is approaching the west-central
Florida coast early this morning. While gusty showers are already
impacting the region, the strongest storms are expected to begin
moving ashore from the Gulf of Mexico between 5am and 7am this
morning for Pinellas and Hillsborough counties... and between 6am
and 8am for Manatee and Sarasota counties. These storms will
contain heavy downpours and gusty winds... likely adversely
impacting the early morning commute. Conditions support a few
isolated storms within this line to contain locally damaging winds
or even a brief tornado. Residents of the Tampa Bay area should
monitor the weather conditions early this morning and be prepared
to take action should warnings become necessary. The
thunderstorms... and any associated threat for severe weather
should push east of the region by the middle to late morning
hours.
