Discussion
Short term (tonight-Thursday)... A decaying front over south
florida is gradually migrating northward with associated moisture
generating a few showers. Radar data showed several lines of
showers forming away from the atlantic coastline during the
afternoon hours, affecting mainly interior areas of miami-dade and
central broward counties.

Meanwhile, models depict a shortwave trough moving away from the
region, which combined with the decaying frontal boundary also
pushing north will translate into decreasing shower activity late
tonight and overnight. Some showers could develop Wednesday
afternoon, but latest model solutions keep filtering a little
drier air into south florida which keeps rain chances low.

Models also show a second, larger trough moving across the region
late Wednesday, which brings another round of showers and potential
for thunderstorms across the state starting early Thursday. This
weather will be supported by an associated sfc frontal boundary
that will also move across the state. In addition, models suggest
the formation of a lower level closed low over the NE gulf on
Thursday, which may help in enhancing shower and thunderstorm
activity all day.

Expect temperatures to remain relatively warm with afternoon highs
in the low to mid 80s and morning lows in the mid to upper 60s.

Long term (Thursday night-Monday)... The trough over the gulf and
its associated sfc front move across the area on Friday, keeping
scattered to numerous showers in place through the evening hours.

By Saturday, drier and cooler air will begin filtering into south
florida in the wake of the trough front complex. This will result
in much drier weather for the weekend. By Monday, morning lows are
expected to drop into the low 50s interior to near 60 metro
areas, along with afternoon highs remaining in the mid-upper 70s.

Marine Small craft exercise caution conditions will continue
tonight over most of the coastal waters with some showers and
maybe a thunderstorm or two possible over the coming days before
a cold front clears through the area during the weekend. Expect
increasing winds and potentially hazardous seas in its wake.

Beach forecast
The risk of rip currents along the atlantic beaches has decreased
to moderate for tonight and through Wednesday as coastal winds
diminish.

Aviation
Showers and thunderstorms have lifted north of the area, away from
the region. This afternoon, limited moisture and lift will
produce mainly isolated showers over portions of the peninsula.

However, not widespread enough to include in the latest taf
package. Southeast winds will remain below 10 kt through this
afternoon, then dwindle by this evening.VFR conds are expected
late tonight through Wednesday morning.
