Vfr conditions will prevail throughout the forecast period. The
easterly wind flow will continue throughout today. Wind speeds
will increase to 10 to 12 knots later this morning and into this
afternoon. For kapf, a weak sea breeze will develop this afternoon
which will shift the winds around to the southwest. Winds will
diminish across all terminals later this evening.

Prev discussion issued 352 am edt Fri oct 19 2018
discussion...

tranquil weather continues again today and into tomorrow as high
pressure governs across south florida. This, in combination with
breezy easterly flow and a dry air mass with pwat values hovering
around 1.00"-1.20", will limit shower thunderstorm activity. Similar
to last night, a few showers will try to push inland early this
morning across east coast sites before marching westward by the
afternoon, but again, no thunder is forecast. High temperatures
today will range from the upper 80s across the east coast metro
areas to the lower 90s across the interior and west coast sections.

A new story unfolds this weekend as a frontal boundary stalls over
central florida Friday before lifting back to the north as a warm
front Saturday. A secondary cold front will then shove its way
through the state Sunday into Monday before eventually stalling
out a pinch to the south of miami-dade county. Because of this,
pops will increase along the eastern portions of south florida,
especially since pwats increase to the 1.80"-2.00" range. High
pressure will then rebuild back into the region midweek with a shift
and increase in winds from the east. Coastal sites can see winds in
the 18-22 mph range while inland sites can see winds in the 8-12 mph
range.

Marine...

with high pressure continuing to dominate across the south
florida atlantic waters, moderate easterly wind will persist today
before tapering off into the weekend. An isolated chance for
showers will also prevail, mainly in the overnight into early
morning hours today. For this morning, wind speeds may reach 15-18
kts, so small craft should exercise caution. Lastly, a cold front is
forecast to arrive early next week, increasing the potential for
higher winds and seas, and thus, advisory levels, especially Sunday
into Monday night.

Aviation...

vfr conditions will prevail throughout the period. A few quick
passing showers possible this morning but rain chances will be low
through the forecast period with high pressure in place. Easterly
winds will increase to 10-12 knots this afternoon. For apf, a weak
gulf sea breeze is expected to form shifting winds from the sw
around 19z around 10 knots. Tonight, winds will relax becoming light
and variable for all sites.

Beach forecast...

east wind of 15 to 20 mph has prevailed for several days and will
continue throughout the day today. Because of this, a high risk of
rip currents will occur on the atlantic beaches. A moderate to high
risk for east coast beaches will likely continue into the early part
of the weekend.

Fire weather...

an area of high pressure will continue to reign across south florida
for the first half of this weekend with only a few showers pushing
inland early this morning before marching westward by the afternoon.

Expect easterly winds of 5 to 10 mph each day this weekend. Because
of relatively light winds, dispersion values below 25 are forecast
for Saturday, leading to poor dispersion. However on Sunday behind a
passing cold front, values above 75 are expected, leading to
excellent dispersion as winds pick up. Relative humidity values will
remain above critical thresholds through the period.

Climate...

a record high minimum was tied at fort lauderdale on Thursday,
october 18th. The low temperature of 80 degrees tied 1998's daily
record warm low temperature of 80 degrees.

Persistent onshore flow from the warm atlantic threatens
additional warm records for today as well --
the record warm minima for today, october 19th are as follows:

Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
