Aviation
Other than some early morning patchy fog possible mainly at kfxe
and ktmb,VFR flying conditions with dry weather will prevail
through the TAF period. Winds will be westerly at 10-15 knots
through around 00z before trending under 10 knots overnight. Winds
will shift to the southeast at 5-10 knots for the east coast sites
late in the TAF period.

update...

as of 935 am edt... Only major update to the ongoing forecast was
to cancel the fire weather watch for inland collier county, and
replace with a special weather statement as confidence is not high
enough that the winds and relative humidity will meet critical
thresholds over a wide enough area. There will still be an
elevated fire weather risk for this area, and a red flag warning
continues as well for glades and hendry counties until 8pm, where
critical thresholds are more likely to be met. Rest of forecast
is on track with only minor updates to account for the latest
trends in observations. Dry weather and gradually decreasing cloud
cover will prevail today, with high temperatures generally in the
lower 80s.

fire weather watch for inland collier county...

discussion...

south florida is now in the drier air behind a frontal boundary
that has cleared into the caribbean and bahamas. The parent low
pressure system remains over the southeast united states and will
north along the eastern seaboard of the united states over the
coming days. Today will be a dry and somewhat cooler day across
south florida. As the week continues, the airmass over the region
will moderate a bit as the next frontal system pushes across the
country.

This next frontal system will push towards florida by week's end.

This system will be capable of creating a tightening gradient that
may cause some gusty southeasterly flow across the area, but
widespread rainfall does not appear to be in the cards for south
florida this weekend. Instead, temperatures will increase to a
summer-like lower 90s across much of the southern peninsula late
week heading into the weekend.

Deep layered atlantic high pressure will hang over the region
into the weekend as the next frontal system emerges over the
central united states. This front will push into our region late
in the extended forecast period but could potentially pack enough
punch to reach as far south as south florida with some chances of
showers and thunderstorms to kick off early next week. Both the
00z GFS and 00z ECMWF have similar solutions which increases
confidence a tad, but trends will have to continue to be similar
as we get closer in time to definitively say that this could be
our next chance for wetting rain across the region.

Marine...

high pressure will build across the region for the coming days,
allowing a lighter flow over the waters. As the wind lightens,
seas will diminish today. Overall, conditions over the next
several days should remain rain-free.

Fire weather...

drier air filtering over the region today creates a fire weather
concern over southwest florida for this afternoon. A red flag
warning is already in effect for glades & hendry counties due to
expected long durations late this morning through the afternoon of
relative humidity values below 40 percent. A special weather
statement is in effect for inland collier county due to the
winds and relative humidity expected to be just around critical
levels.
