Marine Weather and Tides
Fort Lauderdale, FL

Version 3.4
What's New / NOTES
5/20/2018 -- NOAA is having problems with the data feed that I use to draw the graphs. They are aware of the issue and working to resolve it. Sometimes changing the location by about a mile will give a correct graph. 3/3/2018 - There is a new GOES Satellite for the east coast that required rewriting that part of the code. Please report any issues.

Update
Isolated showers and storms have been dwindling along the gulf
coast of mainland monroe and southern collier. Any remaining
activity should continue to diminish through midnight. For this
update, lowered pops slightly for southwest florida for the first
half of the night.

Recent short term models continue to indicate the possibility for
isolated shower thunderstorm activity later in the night toward
the early morning hours for far southern portions of the area and
the atlantic waters. Wouldn't be surprised to see an isolated
shower or storm over miami-dade and the adjactent atlantic waters
towards daybreak. Therefore, went with pops around 20 percent
after 2am on through the morning hours.

Prev discussion issued 735 pm edt Tue jun 19 2018
aviation... Limited shra tsra this eve well away from any taf
sites, though outflows may briefing bring a few within vcnty kapf
through 02z. Winds become light vrb overnight, with offshore flow
likely at most sites. Atlc ridge axis more overhead on wed, so
flow should be lighter and a little more SE for atlc sites.

Coverage remains isold again, so no mention of precip in tafs at
this time.

Prev discussion... Issued 417 pm edt Tue jun 19 2018
discussion... As expected, scattered thunderstorms formed this
afternoon over southern-interior portions of south florida. Expect
this activity to wind down around sunset.

Relatively dry air for this time of year in the mid to upper
levels of the troposphere will remain in place through Wednesday
as a mid-upper level ridge continues to be located over the
northeastern gulf and southeastern u.S. As a result, forecast rain
chances Wednesday are only 40-50 percent over interior areas and
30 percent or less for coastal areas. As the afternoon progresses,
scattered showers and storms will concentrate more over the
interior as both the atlantic and gulf sea breezes should
penetrate farther inland. By Thursday, the flow becomes more
westerly and the pattern of showers and thunderstorms will change
to become more numerous over the eastern half of the area and
lesser over western areas gulf coast. Moisture levels on Thursday
should be a little higher than Wednesday due to a combination of
mid-upper level moisture advecting in from the northeast due to
the weakening ridge... And a westward moving tropical wave over
the caribbean, which will mainly pass south of our latitude. As a
result, rain chances on Thursday will be a little higher over
interior and eastern areas, especially with the flow pushing the
storms toward the east coast during the late afternoon hours. Some
of the activity could last into the evening hours.

Max temperatures will show a slight upward trend, especially for
Thursday for eastern and interior areas due to the sw-w winds. Increasing
humidity levels will cause the heat index to top 100f most areas.

Friday through the upcoming weekend: for Friday and Saturday,
models show a weak mid upper level high over florida with the low
level ridge axis to our south. This should result in a fairly deep
but light westerly flow, favoring scattered showers and
thunderstorms over the eastern half of the area from the afternoon
well into the evening hours, with the gulf coast showing lower
pops in the prevailing westerly flow. By Sunday, models agree that
the atlantic ridge will build into florida from the east,
switching the deep flow to east southeast and increasing moisture
levels as well. As a result, showers and thunderstorms appear to
be likely to end the weekend and start next week. Temperatures
will continue to show an upward trend Friday and Saturday, with
some mid 90s possible into parts of the SE florida metro area and
near 90 to lower 90s elsewhere. Heat index values may approach or
even exceed 105f over parts of the area Friday and Saturday,
something to keep an eye on over the coming days.

Marine... Light winds below 10 kts will prevail over all waters
through Wednesday morning, becoming south to southwest 8-12 knots
late Wednesday through Friday. Over the gulf waters, winds will
become west to southwest near 10 knots during the afternoons near
the coast, then become more consistently west to southwest 5 to 10
knots Thursday through Saturday. A few thunderstorms mainly in
the evening over the gulf waters tonight, then showers and
thunderstorms becoming more likely over the atlantic waters
Wednesday through Saturday, especially from late afternoon through
midnight.
