Update
No significant changes to the forecast for this update. The 00z
sounding indicates the cap is a little higher now... Up to 820 mb.

However, the cap is still strong, which would limit any significant
shower activity from developing overnight. An isolated shower or
two can't be ruled out Sunday morning for eastern parts of south
florida. However, it's not enough for raise pops from 10 percent,
where we have them now for Sunday morning.

I didn't make any changes to our forecast of patchy fog for interior
and western areas for early Sunday morning. However, models are
not very impressive with showing much fog tonight, so it is
possible the patchy fog may not be quite as extensive.

wind will calm this evening, then increase mid-morning to around
10 kt out of the ese. SW sea-breeze is possible at naples during
the afternoon. Any fog should remain inland of terminals
overnight,VFR conditions prevail.

discussion...

(tonight-Sunday night): surface and mid-level high pressure ridge
remains over south florida, providing relatively light winds.

Goes-16 satellite imagery and this morning's 12z mfl sounding
indicate that dry air remains across south florida. Although there
is some low level moisture trapped in the sfc-850mb layer, the
strong subsidence and overall stable conditions will prevent any
significant shower activity to develop through Sunday. But it may
be enough for some overnight low stratus patchy fog to develop
Sunday morning, especially around sunrise, mainly for interior and
northwestern portions of south florida. However, the latest
guidance is not very bullish at all on fog for Sunday morning.

Low temperatures on Sunday morning will again be in the 60s for
most of south fl. Lows may only be a degree or two warmer than
they were this morning. Highs will again be in the 80s.

(Monday-Wednesday): the ridge sneaks slightly northward by
Monday, which will give us stronger east winds beginning Sunday
night or Monday and lasting most of the week. This will increase
moisture levels enough to produce pops near 20 percent for eastern
and southern portions of south florida at times Monday into
Tuesday.

High temperatures through the week will remain in the 80s. Of
note, overnight low temperatures will be warmer, especially
Tuesday morning and maybe also Wednesday morning. Mia and other
locations could be very near record warm minimum temperatures.

Lows are forecast to be in the mid 70s in the coastal and eastern
parts of the metro zones of miami-dade and broward.

(Thursday-Saturday): after a drier day on Wednesday, rain chances
near 20 percent creep back into the forecast later in the week as
a weak mid-level disturbance to our south appears to affect the
ridge just enough to help bring in a few showers from the east-
southeast, possibly on Thursday. Still the ridge remains in
control of our weather for the next week, and no cold fronts or
significant rainfall is expected.

Marine...

a light to moderate east-southeast wind will continue through
Sunday. Seas will remain 3 feet or less through Sunday afternoon.

Winds are expected to increase Sunday night into Monday, likely
reaching the 15-20 knot range by Monday, mainly over the atlantic
waters. Cautionary conditions for small craft for the atlantic
waters will be likely by early Monday. Seas will increase by
Monday and remain elevated in the 4 to 6 foot range through much
of next week.
