Discussion
The remnants of cindy are pushing into the lower mississippi river
valley this afternoon as atlantic high pressure digs into much of
the peninsula of florida. Drier air continues to hold over the
region along with the deep-layered high pressure. As cindy's
moisture is absorbed into an approaching trough, a frontal
boundary will develop over the lower tennessee valley into the
mid-atlantic over the weekend and begin to approach the region
late in the weekend into early next week.

As the frontal boundary approaches south florida Monday into
Tuesday, moisture begins to rebound with increasing shower and
thunderstorm chances. The frontal boundary has some mid-level
support in the gfs, which has more defined front in the 12z
solution, while the ECMWF has a more diffused moisture boundary.

Either way, the available moisture, instability, and forcing
should see a return to rain and storms for our area.

In the extended, the model solutions begin to diverge as the ecmwf
starts building in a ridge at the mid to upper levels while the
gfs holds the ridge back through the end of the week. The
return of moisture will help usher back in a rainy season pattern
that could bring heavy rain threats back starting near the end of
the weekend.

Marine
Southeasterly to easterly flow will continue through the weekend
over the waters. Overnight, conditions in the outer waters will
push scec criteria with improvement expected on Friday morning.

Overnight scec surges over the coming days cannot be ruled out.

Next week, a frontal boundary will begin to near the region early
in the week which could create some hazards for mariners.

Beach forecast
Decided to continue with the high risk of rip currents for this
evening and extend through late Friday. The persistent
southeasterly flow has continued to create rip currents along
the atlantic beaches of south florida today and tomorrow will
still have many of the remnant conditions hanging around. Local
modeling underestimated today's rip current risk a tad and
tomorrow appears to be very similar in pattern. At best, atlantic
beaches may see a moderate risk of rip currents, but even that
elevated risk may be magnified by this week's rip current activity
and rising attendance as the weekend begins.
