Update
Have adjusted pops down in the short term with the drier start to
the evening than previously forecasted. However, some showers
over the atlantic could work their way into the east coast metro
areas late tonight. Therefore, have kept the slight chance for
showers through the overnight hours. Otherwise, the remainder of
the forecast is on track and no major changes are anticipated at
this time.

remain inVFR conditions tonight at all of the TAF sites.

discussion...

maximum temperatures for naples today have exceeded their daily
record along with the monthly record for february. This is a result
of strong deep layer ridging across south florida producing
decent se-e flow. After sunset, the slight chance for isolated
showers may increase given the large amount of day time heating
today. However, unlike the previous few evenings, guidance is not
very optimistic for fog development at this time given the
elevated wind speeds despite ample low-level moisture in place.

Should areas of patchy fog develop throughout the interior, the
extent will likely remain shallow and dissipate after sunrise.

With the aforementioned mid-level ridging aloft securing it's
place across south florida for the remainder of the forecast
period, daily temperatures look to continue running above average
across the peninsula. The chance for showers will increase
through this week as a stationary boundary currently draped across
central florida will begin it's retreat north late tonight. This
will keep south florida within the warm sector as a surface low
currently developing over the lower great plains moves off to the
ne.

By Monday, global models depict a gradual weakening of the mid-
level ridge. Allowing for the upper level flow to become zonal
aloft and thus allow a frontal boundary to approach south florida.

However, the latest runs for both the GFS and ECMWF keep the axis
of the ridge firmly anchored in place. This will cause the front
to lose it's upper level support and become stationary once again
north of our area. The chance of isolated showers remains through
the forecast period and temperatures look to continue to run above
the climatological average for this time of year.

Marine...

overall, fairly quiet weather will remain in place through the
forecast period as high pressure will continue to dominate the
weather pattern across the atlantic and gulf waters. Despite this,
the slight chance of showers cannot be ruled out across the
atlantic through the week.

Through tonight, boating conditions over the atlantic look to
deteriorate as se-e winds increase to 10-15 kt, with 15-20 kt
possible at times as the surface pressure gradient tightens. Seas
will continue to build through the day tomorrow with 4-6 ft seas,
with occasional 7 ft seas, in the atlantic. A NE swell will also
impact the waters off the palm beach county. At this time,
advisory levels are not forecasted. However, mariners should
exercise caution.
