307 pm edt Sun may 26 2019

Discussion
Deep layered ridging remains anchored over the southeast conus
promoting dry conditions under mostly clear skies and above normal
temperatures across the region. Guidance remains pretty unanimous
that temperatures will continue to run 5 to 10 degrees above average
with minimal rain chances through at least mid week... With afternoon
sea breezes across coastal locations and perhaps a few passing
clouds offering the only reprieve from the toasty temps. Expect that
record high temperatures will continue to be challenged over the
next few afternoons at climate sites across central and southwest
florida as high temps range from the mid and upper 90s across the
interior to the low and mid 90s across coastal locales prior to
the afternoon sea breeze moderating temps just a bit. To echo
the previous discussion as a reminder... For those with outdoor
plans this holiday weekend be sure to wear proper clothing,
sunscreen and drink plenty of water.

Beyond midweek the upper ridging will flatten out a bit as an upper
level trough moves across the central plains and ohio river valley
and eventually off the eastern seaboard. Deep easterly flow aloft
currently over the area will be replaced by westerlies which will
enable further inland penetration by the afternoon sea breeze while
east southeast flow at lower levels will provide moisture transport
over the peninsula... Leading to the return of a more diurnal driven,
summer-like pattern with afternoon showers and a possible
thunderstorm primarily in association with daily sea breeze
incursions. With the increase in cloud cover and rain chances
will come a bit of relief from the recent warmth as temperatures
return closer to more seasonal values... Although the return
of more humid conditions as well may be viewed as relief by
some less than others. Nonetheless, expect afternoon high
temperatures ranging from the low to mid 90s across the
interior and upper 80s to low 90s along the coast heading
into next weekend... Which would be a few degrees closer to
climatology but still on the warm side of things.

Aviation
Vfr conditions expected throughout the period. Predominant easterly
flow with onshore flow affecting immediate coastal terminals during
afternoon with sea breeze... While southern terminals further inland
remain mainly easterly.

Marine
High pressure from the atlantic extending west-southwest across the
northern peninsula will maintain a predominant easterly wind flow
across the gulf waters for the next several days. Slightly weaker
easterly flow today will allow sea breeze to shift winds to the west
and northwest along the coast during the afternoon with similar
conditions expected into the memorial day holiday.

Fire weather
Ridging aloft will maintain elevated mixing heights resulting
in somewhat high dispersions for the next couple of days. The
associated dry air mass will drop minimum relative humidity
values down to near 35 percent during the afternoon
hours... Especially inland... But no red flag conditions anticipated
at this time.

In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
