A round of showers asssociated with the first disturbance is
pushing through south florida. A second round is expected to near
the region later this evening into tonight. Current rain chances
are not high enough to include impact beyond the next few hours
where MVFR CIGS are possible.VFR should generally prevail at most
sites through the period with gusty easterly flow. Gusts will
diminish a bit overnight before picking back up after sunrise on
Tuesday.

Prev discussion issued 944 am est Mon feb 19 2018
update...

a disturbance rounding the high is creating showers over the
atlantic waters and portions of south florida this morning. As the
disturbance pushes through, the associated convection will
move on. Made slight changes to the pops based off the radar this
morning. Updated zones have been transmitted to indicate these
changes. Otherwise, the forecast is on track for today. Have a
great holiday!

discussion...

today and tonight: upper level ridge axis currently stretches across
the fl peninsula early this morning, with a strengthening low
level ridge as the main center moves off the new england coast.

Upper level ridge center is expected to become more north-south
oriented today. This will allow two disturbances, one located over
the NW bahamas fl straits, and another located just to the north
of hispaniola, to rotate into the region today and tonight as they
round the base of the ridge.

First feature looks to arrive by mid morning, with general model
consensus bringing a few showers from southeast to northwest
through early afternoon. Expect somewhat of a lull in activity,
with the stronger feature kicking off more showers as it arrives
overnight.

East winds will be breezy at times along the east coast, which
may hold temperatures a degree or two below yesterday in this
area. Otherwise, high temps remain 5-10 degrees above normal in
the low to mid 80s, with a few upper 80s for interior collier
county. The increase in moisture and winds will keep low tonight
mild and muggy in the upper 60s and low 70s, with a few east coast
sites potentially remaining in the mid 70s.

Tuesday and Wednesday: the persistent upper level ridge strengthens
just to our east through mid-week, with a drier airmass arriving in
the wake of the departing low level disturbance. As is often the
case in breezy east-southeast flow, an occasional atlantic shower
can't be ruled out, but the overall forecast looks dry at the
moment. Lack of gulf breeze development will allow temperatures
along the gulf coast and western interior to climb into the mid to
upper 80s. The eastern side of the region will hold a little closer
to normal in the low to mid 80s.

Thursday through Sunday: upper level ridge center slides west across
the fl peninsula to end the week, as the low level ridge axis
migrates southwards. Influence of the ridge will keep the atmosphere
suppressed, limiting any deep convection. However, passing low level
disturbances pockets of higher moisture will be enough to bring
periods of light showers, mainly for the atlantic east coast.

Temperatures continue in the low to mid 80s, with a few upper 80s
for the western interior.

Marine... High pressure to our north will continue to dominate the
local weather pattern through the week. The strengthening western
atlantic ridge axis will remain to our north through late week,
bringing moderate to fresh east winds to both the gulf and atlantic.

Winds over the atlantic may potentially come up to a steady 20
kts later this evening, which may warrant issuing a small craft
advisory later today. Seas 3-4ft in the offshore gulf and 4-5ft,
occasionally 6ft in the atlantic. There will be the potential for
isolated atlantic showers through the period.

Beach forecast... Increasing easterly flow will lead to a high
risk of rip currents on atlantic beaches today, with the threat
likely lingering through most of the week.

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