area forecast discussion

316 pm edt Wed mar 29 2017

Discussion
Tonight... Surface high pressure near the NRN bahamas will keep light
se/s boundary layer flow across the area with mostly clear skies.

Some patchy late night fog should favor well interior sections. Lows
will be mainly in the lower 60s with some upper 50s across the srn
interior north of lake okeechobee.

Thursday... High pressure will drift eastward from the bahamas and
also move east off the mid atlantic coast. This will allow low level
flow to veer to the south with high temperatures into the lower to
mid 80s along the immediate coast and in the upper 80s for the
interior. The east coast sea breeze will form along the east coast
by early afternoon and push inland into late afternoon and early
evening. Pwats nudge up to 1.1-1.2 across interior sections in the
afternoon which should produced a healthy cumulus field. Will keep
forecast dry with models not indicating any QPF across the nrn
interior late though late day sea breeze convergence could produce a
shower or two near sunset. Long period east swells will keep the rip
current risk elevated at east coast beaches.

Thu night-fri night... Approaching disturbance aloft will bring an
increase in rainfall chances by Friday. A warm late march night for
thurs with lows in the mid 60s. On Friday, temperatures will climb
toward the mid/upper 80s southern sections and a few degrees lower
north with earlier timing of clouds/precip moving into the area.

Sufficient increase in moisture coupled with disturbance aloft
expected to produce scattered showers and a few storms. Have
scattered pops in all areas along with slight thunderstorm mention
for the afternoon hours. A few showers may linger into the evening
across the southern sections. Overnight mins into Sat morning will
remain below normal... With low/mid 60s most areas.

Previous forecast discussion for this weekend into next week...

weekend... A transitory ridge will become established over the area
with pleasant but warm temperatures expected and scattered
cloudiness at most. Onshore breezes will develop along the coast
each afternoon... Breezy at times due to the seasonally strong
thermal contrast in the coastal zone. Highs in the m-u80s inland
with overnight lows 60-65.

Extended... Another disturbance is shown apchg the area during mon.

This feature initially looks a little more defined than the previous
one, and a window for development of sct storms should exist at
least over the northern portion of the peninsula late Monday and
into tue. As ul energy driving the system pulls away from the area,
a lingering boundary sagging into the central peninsula tue-wed may
help in local pcpn development diurnally.

Sct rain coverage is indicated for the period ATTM through Tue then
becoming isold at midweek.

Aviation
Vfr prevailing at all sites. East coast sea breeze moving inland
should reach the interior sites around 21z to 22z this afternoon
turning winds easterly around 10 kt. After sunset this evening winds
will be light and variable. Some patchy fog is possible Thursday
morning but have left out for the time being.

Marine
Tonight... Se winds to 10 knots this evening will veer to the south
overnight. Seas will continue 3-4 ft in an east swell.

Thu... S winds to 10 knots in the morning will become SE 10-15 knots
near shore in the afternoon. Seas will remain in the 3-4 ft range
mainly in an east swell.

Thu night-Monday... Southerly winds will pick up Thursday night then
veer more SW Friday ahead of approaching disturbance. Seas will
build as this occurs, especially the offshore legs and may need some
headlines by late Thursday night. Also, some offshore moving storms
possible on Friday. Boating conditions will improve by Saturday with
high pressure pattern over area. Winds again veer to south and begin
to increase late Sunday into Mon as the next low pressure system
moves into SE states.
