Mike and Rob have stepped into warning operations in the Tampa Bay CWA.  A line of training cells is oriented SSE to NNW across the CWA.  Individual cells have maintained some identity.  CAPE is relatively large, so the environment is not tropical throughout the column, but tropical moisture is in place at low levels.  The 0-1km shear is modeled at 10 to 15 knots throughout the central and southern peninsula, increasing to the north of a quasi-stationary front that is north of Tampa Bay.
