|AMZ500 Synopsis For Flagler Beach To Jupiter Inlet Out 60 Nm- 342 Pm Edt Mon May 29 2017 |
Synopsis..The axis of the atlantic high pressure ridge across south florida will migrate northward into central florida by mid week. This will produce a southeast to south wind flow and will increase moisture. Isolated afternoon and evening storms may begin to push offshore and affect the nearshore waters Tuesday.
Gulf stream hazards..None. The approximate location of the west wall of the gulf stream based on the real time ocean forecast system as of Monday may 29th. 44 nautical miles east of ponce inlet. 30 nautical miles east of port canaveral. 25 nautical miles east of sebastian inlet. 14 nautical miles east of fort pierce inlet. 10 nautical miles east of saint lucie inlet.

337 pm edt Mon may 29 2017
Hopefully start of the wet season upcoming for most areas...
tonight-Tuesday... The sea breezes will merge down the spine of the
peninsula this evening. This may be too late to generate much
convection, and the hrrr hasn't been showing much. Have left the
previous forecast which showed slight shower chances over the
lower kissimmee river region.
Mid level ridge will retreat into the atlantic through tue. This
will decrease subsidence and allow for deeper moistening to occur.
Precipitable water should start off early Tue 1.3 to 1.4 inches,
then higher moisture is shown advecting up from the south.
Low level high pressure ridge over the southern peninsula will
maintain a light southwest flow, then as the east coast sea breeze
forms and moves steadily inland, expect initiation of isolated to
scattered showers storms early to mid afternoon. Enough steering
should exist for some of the inland storms to affect the more
populous portions of the coast, but slightly higher coverage
should be over interior sections. MOS has 40 percent rain chances
over the area, but with the dryness of late, have gone with 20
percent along the coast and 30 inland. Expect the earliest
convection in the south, while northern sections get into the
action towards early evening.
Wed-thu... Axis of subtropical ridge will continue a gradual
northward movement across the region, with it initially across the
area Wednesday and then moving into north florida Thursday.
Moisture will continue to increase across the area in low level
flow that will initially be light out of S SW Wednesday, and then
increasing slightly out of the E SE Thursday. East coast sea
breeze will move inland each day, with late day boundary
collisions across the interior favoring higher rain chances up to
30-40 percent Wed and 40-50 percent Thursday. Highs will continue
to range from the upper 80s along the coast and low 90s over the
interior. Lows in the low to mid 70s.
Fri-sun... The subtropical ridge axis will persist across north to
north central fl into late week and then shift southward into the
weekend as a front pushes into the southeastern united states.
Moisture will remain sufficient to produce scattered afternoon and
evening lightning storms with rain chances forecast to increase to
50-60 percent Fri and around 50 percent into the weekend. The|
increase in cloud cover and rain chances will keep high temps
closer to seasonable levels in the upper 80s to around 90 degrees.
Aviation Local MVFR stratus is possible early Tue morning.
Expect isolated-scattered showers storms Tue afternoon, mainly after
18z, but could be slightly earlier ksua-kfpr. Chances may hold off
until after 21z northward from about kism-kmco-ktix.
Tonight-Tuesday... Axis of high pressure ridge will remain south of
the waters. This will provide a light southwest gradient wind and
continued benign seas. The main mariner concern will be a slight
chance for afternoon evening storms on Tue to push back across the
coast into the nearshore atlantic waters.
Wed-sat... High pressure ridge axis will slowly migrate northward
across the area and into north north central florida by late week.
S SE flow will generally range from 10-15 knots, with seas 2-3 ft.
Scattered storms will continue to be possible each afternoon,
mainly across inland areas, but a few storms may push offshore
into the nearshore waters mainly north of sebastian inlet.
Tuesday... Moisture will continue to gradually increase. Min rh
values are forecast around 40 percent over interior sections. Winds
will continue to have a light westerly component, then as the sea
breeze pushes inland during the afternoon, speeds will pick up
briefly to 10- 15 mph. The moistening looks sufficient for
isolated to scattered thunderstorms in the afternoon and evening.

There are five sources. 1) Documents and manuals from a variety of sources. These have not been checked for accuracy and in many cases have not even been read by anyone associated with L-36.com. I have no idea of they are useful or accurate, I leave that to the reader. 2) Articles others have written and submitted. If you have questions on these, please contact the author. 3) Articles that represent my personal opinions. These are intended to promote thought and for entertainment. These are not intended to be fact, they are my opinions. 4) Small programs that generate result presented on a web page. Like any computer program, these may and in some cases do have errors. Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerious of sources and is presented automatically. It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
