Vfr conditions expected through the period. There's a slight
chance of showers for the southern terminals, but not high
enough to mention in the tafs for now. Winds will remain out
of the northwest less than 10 knots through the day. No
other aviation impacts expected.

Near record high temperatures today and Wednesday...

Increasing rain chances late week and into the weekend...

short term (today - Wednesday)...

weakening high pressure surface and aloft over the gulf and
florida will remain in control today with a west-northwest
wind flow continuing over the forecast area. A subtle
increase in moisture and less suppression from the ridge
aloft will lead to isolated to scattered showers and storms
(pops 20-30 %) developing along the sea breeze boundaries
over inland areas during the afternoon, otherwise hot and
muggy weather will continue with some near record high
temperatures possible. See the climate section below for
some record high temperatures for today and Wednesday. The
high humidity combined with the hot temperatures will
support heat indices in the 102-106 degree range across the
forecast area during the afternoon hours, so if you work or
plan to be outdoors today drink plenty of water to stay
hydrated and stay in the shade if at all possible.

Temperatures will run above normal with highs soaring into
the lower to mid 90s along the coast, and mid to upper 90s
inland.

Tonight isolated showers storms over inland locations will
gradually wind down by mid evening with warm and muggy
conditions expected overnight. Low temperatures will range
from the mid 70s inland areas, to the upper 70s to around 80
along the coast.

On Wednesday the upper level ridge will weaken further as
one portion of it remains over the central gulf and the
other across the western atlantic as a short wave trough
approaches from the southeast. At the surface the high
center over the gulf will drift west-northwest toward the
north-central gulf coast. As the high drifts west-northwest
the 1000-700mb flow will veer to the north- northeast during
the day. A continued increase in moisture (pw's increasing
into the 1.6-1.8 inch range during the afternoon) combined
with daytime heating will lead to higher chances (pops 30-
40%) for scattered diurnal sea breeze driven showers and
storms across the area during the afternoon and early
evening hours. It will remain hot and muggy with
temperatures again climbing into the lower to mid 90s along
the coast, and mid to upper 90s inland with heat indices in
the 100-105 degree range.

Long term (Wednesday night - Monday)...

through sat: mid level ridging centered near 30 north
latitude 70 west longitude extends to the eastern seaboard
while weak short wave troughs track from the caribbean sea
to the gulf of mexico - sweeping wide swathes of moisture
rich air over the area. At the surface broad high pressure
with a relaxed gradient initially over the southeast quarter
of the nation slides off the mid-atlantic coast with the
gradient tightening down over the gulf of mexico and fl. As
a result lower level flow becomes easterly then gradually
shifts to southeasterly. The moisture will be
adequate... Along with daytime heating... For scattered to
numerous showers and thunderstorms. These form inland in the
afternoons and shift toward the gulf coast in the evenings.

For sun-mon: both the mid level ridging and the surface high
pressure drop south then build westward into the gulf of
mexico. The lower level flow shifts Sun and becomes westerly
by mon. Abundant moisture continues with scattered to
numerous showers and storms generally favoring inland
sections in the afternoons.

High temperatures will be around normal to just below while
the lows will be near to just above.

Aviation...

brief MVFR CIGS vsbys will be possible mainly across the
southern terminals after 20z today as some shra tsra
develop along the inland moving sea breeze and have handled
with vcts for now, otherwiseVFR will prevail at all
terminals during the next 24 hours. Light and variable winds
early this morning will become west-northwest at 8 to 12
knots after 15z and gusty in the vicinity of tsra. Winds
will become light and variable again after 02z tonight.

Marine...

high pressure will maintain tranquil boating conditions
across the gulf waters today through the end of the week
with west-northwest winds today through Wednesday becoming
easterly Thursday and into the upcoming weekend, with an
enhanced onshore sea breeze component developing along the
coast each afternoon. Mainly dry conditions are expected
today, with showers and storms returning to the waters
Wednesday through Saturday as deeper moisture overspread the
area. Higher winds and seas will be possible near any
storms, otherwise no headlines are expected.

Fire weather...

humidity values are forecast to remain above critical levels
through the end of the week with no red flag conditions or
fire weather hazards expected.
