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.

update...

a morning round of convection led to a drier period. That appears
to be ending soon as outflow from convection to the south is
nearing the coast of south florida. The forecast was updated to
extend the high surf advisory into tonight, but otherwise the
forecast is on track. Have a great Tuesday!

aviation...

a morning round of storms moving through all the sites with
brief ifr conditions possible. Some improvement expected this
morning before additional convection kicks off in the afternoon.

Several waves of sub-vfr conditions possible through the day
requiring short-fused amendments. Conditions may improve
overnight.

Prev discussion... Issued 433 am edt Tue sep 26 2017
discussion...

short term (today-Thursday night)... With a generally light flow
remaining in place, expect sea breezes each afternoon which will
become the focal point for convection. Mfl sounding and model
moisture data do not show deep layer moisture over the area, with
shower storm coverage near normal values. Best chances of rain
remain over the interior today and Wed afternoon.

Global model solutions, mainly GFS and ecmwf, depict a deepening
mid upper lvl trough across most of the eastern half of the conus
starting Thursday. This will gradually veer winds to a more
southerly flow, bringing increasing deeper moisture from the
caribbean across south florida. Pops have been updated, along
with thunderstorm coverage becoming more widespread Thu thu night.

Temperatures will remain near seasonal normals, reaching upper
80s to lower 90s during the days, and 70s for overnight minima.

Long term (Thursday night-Monday)... A weak cold front boundary
reaches northern florida by Friday, which may stall near or just
north of the region over the weekend. Deeper moisture is expected
to remain in place with showers and thunderstorms likely Fri and
possibly sat. For Sunday and into early next week, GFS dries the
area faster than ecmwf, while the later depicts south florida
remaining in a highly moist and unstable environment. Model
solutions also show a weak low pressure developing between south
florida and the bahamas along the dissipating frontal boundary.

Therefore, rain chances will remain relatively high through the
weekend. Temperatures should remain near normals.

Marine...

hurricane maria will keep pushing a NE swell across the region
with seas of up to 8 feet in the gulf stream off palm beach
county. A small craft advisory remains in effect for those waters.

Winds will not be a factor for the rest of the week. Shower and
thunderstorm coverage will increase late this week.

Beach forecast...

high risk of rip currents continue over all atlantic beaches and
a high surf advisory remains in effect for the palm beach county
coastline as the swell from hurricane maria continues.
