Aviation
Atlantic convection pushing towards the east coast terminals along
the gusty, persistent easterly flow may produce brief bouts of
MVFR this evening and tonight. Convection could linger through the
morning hours as well. Short-fused amendments to introduce sub-vfr
conditions are possible. Apf could see a gulf sea breeze develop
again on Saturday afternoon.

discussion...

broad high pressure continues to dominate the weather pattern across
south florida rest of today into Saturday. The breezy easterly flow
experienced over the last couple of days will remain in place through
Saturday before ridge begins to weaken veering winds to the southeast.

Low level moisture caught up in the flow continues to push onshore
from over atlantic ocean. NWS radar and short term models, including
the hrrr and WRF prog activity over the atlantic waters moving east
tonight enhancing showers along the eastern counties. Upper level
high pressure will produce subsidence today, boosting high temps
a couple degrees above seasonal norms through the weekend and
early next week. This is especially true for the gulf coast, as
air tends to dry and warm while crossing the peninsula in a
prevailing easterly flow. With forecast maximum temperatures in
the mid 80s, naples may only come a few degrees shy of reaching
its daily maximum temperature record. As night approaches, winds
will decrease in intensity, with only light breezes remaining
along the immediate east coast.

Medium to long term (Sunday to Friday)... Model guidance shows fair
agreement in migrating the upper level ridge over the fl peninsula.

This will bring more warm weather for the region, with subsidence
aloft remaining strong. Look for high temperatures ranging from
the low to mid 80s areawide. Long range models prog a cold front
to approach the southeast conus. This should drive the aforementioned
surface high eastward, leaving south florida in weak flow, and allow
for diurnally driven sea breezes to develop. Enough low level moisture
and weak instability will exist to generate a few light showers, but
not expecting any significant rainfall events.

Marine...

high pressure will continue to dominate the weather pattern across
south florida waters. East to southeast winds will continue with
wind speeds of 10 to 15 knots for the gulf and 15 to 20 knots for
the atlantic. Small craft should exercise caution. A few showers
are possible, mainly over the atlantic waters, through the period.

Beach forecast...

breezy east surface winds will keep a high risk of rip currents
along atlantic beaches through Saturday evening.
