Area Forecast Discussion . UPDATED National Weather Service Miami FL 641 AM EST Fri Jan 28 2022

AVIATION(12Z TAFS). Fog has developed over the east coast TAF sites early this morning allowing for the vis and ceilings to fall into the IFR conditions at times. The fog should start to burn off between 13Z and 15Z and be gone by 15Z where the vis and ceilings will become VFR conditions. KAPF taf site will see MVFR to even IFR conditions in the ceilings until 15Z then VFR conditons after that. Winds will be westerly around 10 knots today over the TAF sites.

PREV DISCUSSION. (Issued 545 AM EST Fri Jan 28 2022)

UPDATE . Patchy to areas of dense fog has worked into the east coast metro areas from the eastern interior areas of South Florida early this morning. The dense fog will continue through early this morning before dissipating later this morning due to heating of the day. Therefore, a Dense Fog Advisory has been issued for the eastern half of South Florida until 8 AM EST this morning.

PREV DISCUSSION . (Issued 354 AM EST Fri Jan 28 2022)

SHORT TERM (Through Saturday) . Patchy fog and low status has developed across portions of South Florida this morning. Visibilities may be reduced to less than a mile in some locations. Fog and visibilities should improve after sunrise.

Latest surface analysis has a stalled frontal boundary across central Florida with a low pressure system developing to the east of the peninsula. Increasing pressure gradient will lead to increasing and backing winds from N to W as the day progresses. Rain chances throughout the day will remain low. High temperatures this afternoon will be in the mid to upper 70s.

A secondary cold front will be moving through the southeastern CONUS today and then down the Florida peninsula overnight. Scattered showers will be possible as the front moves through the region with highest POPs over the local waters. Wind will become breezy and gusty behind the frontal passage on Saturday. High pressure will build behind the front a dry and very cold air mass will settle over the region. Saturday maximum temperatures will be tepid at best, staying in the mid 50s to low 60s, well below normal for this time of year

LONG TERM (Saturday Night through Thursday Night) .

Say goodbye to the nice Florida temperatures, a least for a couple of days! The main story for this period occurs immediately as the sun sets on Saturday. A high pressure system will continue to drop southward over the Florida peninsula, helping to maintain CAA over the area overnight. The models remain on track for unseasonably low temperatures across South Florida. Some areas will see the coldest air in about a decade. Over the interior areas temperatures will drop to 30 degrees, with isolated areas in Glades County dipping into the high 20s for a short period of time. Closer to the coast, minimum temperatures could be in the 35-40 degree range.

Wind conditions overnight will remain breezy, with NW flow between 5- 10 mph over the full forecast area. This will mean that wind chill conditions could drop into the 20-30 degree range for the whole forecast region for sustained periods, with areas near Lake Okeechobee reaching low 20s wind chill temperatures.

Based on this forecast, Freeze and Wind Chill Watches have been issued for Saturday night/Sunday morning. A Freeze Watch is for the potential of minimum temperatures below 32 degrees in the next 48 hours. A Wind Chill Watch is for the potential of minimum apparent temperatures below 25 degrees and wind speeds greater or equal to 5 mph and could persist for 3 or more hours.

The high pressure system will dominate conditions from Sunday through Tuesday as it builds and settle over the peninsula. Maximum temperatures on Sunday will not warm up much, staying in the cool mid 50 to 60 degree range. As a result, minimum temperatures overnight could once again drop to the low to mid 30s across Glades and Hendry and mid 30s in portions of the interior. Coastal and metro areas could see low temperatures in the 40s.

Temperatures should start to moderate Monday as winds will start veering to a NE flow. Conditions should remain dry with POPs below 20 for the rest of the forecast period.

AVIATION(06Z TAFS) . Generally VFR conditions are forecast to persist through the forecast period. Intermittent MVFR CIGs are possible along most TAF sites, and even brief IFR CIGs cannot be ruled out (mainly near PBI/APF). Winds generally NW around 5 kt or light/vrb around most locations through early AM hours, then NW around 10 kt by 13-15Z. Winds will increase later in forecast period as front approaches region, with ISO/SCT SHRA chances accompanying this feature as well.

MARINE . Hazardous marine conditions will be possible today through Sunday morning associated with a cold front.

Winds will shift from N to W this morning ahead of the front today, with possible wind speeds reaching 15 kts over Atlantic and Gulf waters. Seas could reach up to 7 feet over the Palm Beach waters today. A Small craft advisory is in effect for the Northern Atlantic waters today.

Once the front passes overnight, winds should become NW increasing to 25-30 kts with gust to gale force over Atlantic and Gulf waters. These conditions will prevail for most of the day Saturday and overnight into Sunday morning, leading to seas up to 10 feet in areas of the Gulf and Atlantic waters. Given these conditions a Gale warning has been issued.

Conditions will gradually begin to improve on Sunday, first over the Gulf and then over the Atlantic. Winds will continue to decrease and turn NNE Sunday and Monday.

FIRE WEATHER . Transport winds will increase today, allowing for dispersion values to increase to the fair to good range across the area. A strong cold front will pass through the region overnight with scattered showers possible. Behind the frontal passage high pressure will develop with much cooler and drier conditions to be present region-wide. Relative humidity values will likely drop below critical thresholds on Saturday and Sunday. However, wind and ERC thresholds are not expected to be met.

BEACHES . A high risk of rip currents for the Gulf beaches Saturday into Sunday morning.

There is an elevated risk of rip currents for the Atlantic and this weekend with the passage of a cold front overnight. Today the main concern will be for Palm Beach County beaches due to a northeasterly swell.

Surf heights of up to 6 feet could be possible along Palm Beach County beaches due to increasing northerly long-period swell moving down into the area Monday associated with the nor'eastern up north.
