326 pm edt Wed mar 22 2017

Short term
The mid/upper-level trough across the east coast will continue to
shift out into the atlantic through tonight and into Wednesday as
ridging builds over the southern part of the country and into the
gulf of mexico. At the surface, a frontal boundary over the northern
part of the peninsula will continue to shift southward through
tonight, with surface high pressure then building toward the east
coast. Rain chances for tonight are minimal as shower activity
should be confined east of the area before daybreak. The main issue
for tonight is the probability of low clouds and/or fog development.

Both the narre and SREF are showing low ceilings moving into coastal
areas from around sarasota northward around midnight or so. As far
as fog, generally expect patchy fog, with some locally dense, over
the southwest florida region, as well as some of the normally fog-
prone areas elsewhere. Low clouds and fog should lift within a
couple hours of sunrise.

The ridge aloft will build even farther eastward through Thursday,
with the surface ridge taking up a position right along the eastern
seaboard. This set-up will keep an east/northeast wind flow across
the state through the day. The frontal boundary will wash out over
south florida, but some residual moisture coupled with low-level
speed convergence along the east coast will likely bring scattered
showers across the east coast in the morning, migrating westward
through the day. Looks like the best potential for these showers
will be for the central and southern part of the forecast area.

These showers should be low-topped, so accumulations likely will not
amount to much.

Long term
A cold front will be pushing south of the area Thursday night as an
upper trough shifts east of the state. A few showers may be
continuing to linger across the southern zones at the start of the
period, but should quickly push south of the area. High pressure and
upper ridging will then be building into the area behind the front
for Friday through Saturday. A weak and mostly dry upper disturbance
is then expected to move through the area Sunday as high pressure
weakens across the region, and then a weak front stalls across the
area for late in the period. Temperatures are expected to be above
normals through the period.

Aviation
Vfr conditions are expected through the rest of the day.

Another round of low clouds and/or fog will be likely tonight,
although the forecast for this is rather complicated. Currently,
believe the best chance for low CIGS will be for
ktpa/kpie/ksrq/klal, with MVFR currently forecast and ifr possible.

Most model guidance hints at low CIGS for kpgd/kfmy/krsw, but really
hits on lower vsbys, so the forecast follows as such.VFR will
return to all sites late morning.

Marine
A frontal boundary will move through the area tonight into Thursday,
with winds becoming east to northeast through the end of the week.

An increase in wind speed to cautionary or advisory levels is
expected later Thursday into the first part of Friday, and then
again on Friday night with the overnight easterly surge. Winds and
seas will then relax for the weekend.

Fire weather
Relative humidity values will remain above critical levels through
the end of the week. Patchy fog can be expected tonight into
Thursday morning.
