Discussion
Short term (tonight through Thursday night)
scattered showers and isolated thunderstorms are occurring this
afternoon mainly over northern interior sections of south florida,
and this activity should continue into the evening before
generally dying off. Few coastal showers, more likely over waters,
will then be the rule overnight. South florida remains in a fairly
light flow regime through the short term, with most activity being
fired by sea breeze boundaries interactions. Relatively weak
mid upper level trough will reside in the vicinity, allowing for
near seasonal coverage of convection. Temperatures will also
remain near average for the end of september.

Long term (Friday through Monday night)
aforementioned trough will deepen into the weekend, challenging
deeper moisture into florida from the south. A cold front will
sag into the state, and may reach sections of south florida late
in the weekend, before stalling and dissipating. These features
will lead to increasing rain chances, with showers and
thunderstorms likely through the period. Weak low pressure may
also develop in the vicinity of the cold front, which would
enhance rain chances further.

Marine
Ne swell associated with hurricane maria continues to spread sw
down the atlantic coast of florida. Although conditions have been
gradually improving today, there is still a small craft advisory
along the gulf stream off palm beach county, where seas of 7 feet
are possible. This advisory is presently out through Wednesday,
but if present trends continue, the advisory may be able to be
dropped later tonight.

Aviation
Another round of convection is possible this afternoon as the sea
breezes attempt to push inland. Some activity could linger over
the southern terminals overnight before a morning round of
convection. SubVFR conditions are possible with convection that
impacts terminals which would require short fused amendments.

Beach forecast
High surf advisory in effect for the palm beach county coast due
to northeasterly swell from hurricane maria through later tonight.

A high risk of rip currents exist along the entire south florida
atlantic coast through Wednesday due to these same swells. The
risk of rip currents and high surf will diminish later this week.

Fire weather
Persistent light winds have led to poor dispersion over the past
few days along coastal sections of south florida. This is likely
to persist for the next several days.
