Aviation
Showers are developing inland from the east coast terminals and
just north and east of kapf as of 1745z. Expect some of these
will mature into thunderstorms over the next several hours with
very slow W NW movement. New development along gust fronts may
push some of this activity toward the terminals later this
afternoon or evening so vcts will be maintained until 01z. A brief
period of ifr conditions and variable gusty winds may accompany
any thunderstorms should they impact terminals. Overnight light
and variable winds before sea breezes kick in along both coasts
after sunrise. Some guidance indicates showers may develop along
the land breeze late tonight off the atlantic coast and push west
toward the east coast terminals toward sunrise, so vcsh may need
to be added to the tafs in later issuance if confidence in this
increases.

update...

visible satellite imagery reveals building cumulus moving slowly
from southeast to northwest across south florida. Expect sea
breezes to develop along both coasts by midday and clash over the
interior. Numerous thunderstorms are expected over the interior
this afternoon. With a slow storm motion to the west-northwest,
locally heavy rain will be possible. Some of the storms could then
push to the north or northeast later in the afternoon, but the
widespread activity is not expected over the east coast metro
area. The adjusted morning sounding reveals a decent amount of
low-level instability as well as 1300 j kg of dcape. This means
that a few thunderstorms could contain strong wind gusts, mainly
over the interior this afternoon. One waterspout was reported
earlier off of boca raton, and the risk of waterspouts along
coastal waters should persist through the midday hours.

discussion...

latest water vapor imagery shows high pressure over the florida
region this morning with broad trough gradually digging south over
the central portion of the conus. Short range models show trough
deepening southward today weakening high pressure across south fl
and pushing associated cold front southeast into the fl panhandle.

As high pressure weakens, southeast flow remains moderate today
remaining around 10 to 15 mph. This in combination with abundant
moisture content ahead of the front and sea breeze collision will
favor for showers and thunderstorm activity this afternoon. The
leading edge of the front should not reach the area, but its
influence will be enough to generate enough instability and deep
layer moisture for some storms to become strong, especially during
the afternoon and early evening hours. The best chance of pops
will be in the interior in the mid afternoon, then propagate
westward with outflow boundaries that form from the convection.

Temperatures will remain near normals with afternoon highs in the
mid 80s to lower 90s.

Deeper moisture ahead of the front, in combination with light winds
and strong sea breeze interaction will result in greater coverage of
showers and thunderstorm activity through the week. Similar weather
pattern is expected through the week with active convection during
the afternoon and evening and less coverage overnight. High temps
will be near normal ranging from the 80s to low 90s. By Saturday,
stronger subsidence and a drying trend should begin bringing back a
more typical summer pattern with sea breezes resulting in afternoon
convection favoring interior and gulf coast areas.

Marine...

surface high pressure near bermuda will keep an east to
southeast wind across the coastal waters through mid week.

The chances for showers and thunderstorms will increase through
the week but mainly inland. However, outflow boundaries could
enhance some convection over the waters. The flow will be mainly
be east to southeasterly, with the exception of the near shore
gulf waters, where an afternoon southwest sea breeze may develop.

For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
