Discussion
Short term (tonight-Saturday)... The overall weather pattern won't
change much during the short term as a persisting mid-upper level
ridge remains in place. At the sfc, high pressure sprawls across
the western atlantic and keeps mainly easterly flow over south
florida for the next couple of days. Pressure gradients are
expected to remain tight enough to keep bringing breezy periods
through Friday afternoon, then weakening on Saturday.

This synoptic scenario will keep generally stable conditions
through the weekend, however, 12z mfl sounding depicts enough low
level moisture filtering into the area for a few passing showers
to develop each day. But any shower that forms should remain
shallow and brief as subsidence from the aforementioned ridge
will continue to suppress significant vertical development.

The dominant ridge will also continue to support the warm trend of
this february with afternoon highs hovering the mid 80s and
morning lows in the mid-upper 60s.

Models show a disturbance moving near the florida keys through
tonight, but the significant moisture associated with this
feature should remain south of the area.

Long term (Saturday night-Wednesday)... Models show fair agreement
in pushing a trough low complex across the eastern us Sunday and
into early next week, with an associated frontal boundary reaching
the NE gulf and north florida by Monday. This feature should
stall north of the area and gradually dissipate through mid week
without bringing any significant impacts across south florida. But
it could briefly weaken the ridge and veer winds to a more sse
flow on Sunday and Monday, although overall wind speeds will
remain weak enough to allow for afternoon sea breezes to develop
each day.

The warm trend continues next week with afternoon highs remaining
in the mid 80s and morning lows in the mid-upper 60s across much
of south florida.

Marine High pressure continues to dominate the weather pattern
with breezy east to southeast winds through the weekend. A few
showers are possible over the atlantic waters through the weekend.

Beach forecast Breezy easterly flow will keep a high risk of
rip currents at atlantic beaches through the remainder of the
week.

Aviation
East wind 10 to 15 kt during the days (with some higher gusts) and
5 to 10 kt overnight will continue through the period. Sct bkn
3-4kft CIGS will prevail, with a few periods of MVFR-level clouds
expected. Isolated, brief showers are possible, but should have
minimal impacts.

In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
