GMZ800 Synopsis For The Coastal Waters From Bonita Beach To Suwannee River- 858 Pm Edt Sun Jun 25 2017
Synopsis..High pressure across the central florida peninsula and eastern gulf this evening will weaken and shift south some later tonight into Monday as a weakening frontal trough sags south into the northern peninsula on Monday, then stalls out across the central peninsula on Tuesday. High pressure building to the north of the waters will help to increase an easterly wind flow across the waters Wednesday through Friday. Abundant moisture coupled with the frontal trough and sea breeze will support scattered to numerous showers and Thunderstorms across the waters daily. Wind and seas will higher in the vicinity of Thunderstorms, otherwise no headlines are expected.

Update
Sea breeze and outflow boundary interactions helped to fire
off some scattered showers and isolated storms across the
region during the afternoon, however similar to yesterday
rather warm mid level temperatures (-5c at 500mb) again
kept overall convective coverage on the low side for late
june.

Early this evening 88d returns show a band of showers and a
few storms from near north port extending northeast to
haines city, with a few other showers noted near bonita
springs and CAPE coral. Like last night boundary
interactions will keep this convection going for a few more
hours, with possibly some additional areas of showers or
storms developing as well, before the convection finally
begins to dissipate late in the evening as loss of daytime
heating continues and boundary interactions diminish. It
will be another warm and muggy night across the region with
overnight lows in the mid 70s inland area, and upper 70s
along the coast. Current forecast is on track with no
evening update required at this time.

On Monday moisture will continue to increase across the
region. This moisture coupled with the sea breeze and a
frontal trough sinking south into the northern part of the
forecast area, and cooler mid level temperatures will
support higher coverage and chances for showers and
thunderstorms over the region from late morning through the
afternoon. The ample moisture combined with the slow storm
movement will support some locally heavy rainfall in some
locations, along with frequent lightning strikes and gusty
winds.

Aviation
Sea breeze and outflow boundary interactions will keep some
shra tsra in the vicinity of the terminals until 03z and
have covered with vcts, with best chances at klal. After
03zVFR will prevail with some debris mid and high level
clouds AOA 100 expected the remainder of the night. On
MondayVFR conditions will prevail through late morning,
then brief MVFR ifr CIGS and vsbys will be possible after
18z as shra tsra develop over the region and have depicted
vcts at all sites. Winds will become light and variable
after 02z tonight, then becoming southwest to west at 7 to
10 knots after 15z on Monday with higher gusts possible in
the vicinity of tsra.

Marine
Tranquil boating conditions will continue over the gulf
waters the remainder of tonight as high pressure remains
in control. An onshore sea breeze component along the coast
will begin to collapse in the next hour or so with loss of
daytime heating with light east to southeast winds and
slight seas expected overnight into Monday, with the onshore
sea breeze component again developing along the coast
during the afternoon. The current forecast is on track with
no changes expected in the forecast issuance around 9 pm.
