. Possible Strong To Isolated Severe Storms Through Tonight . . Rough Marine Conditions Early This Weekend Behind Frontal Passage . . Possible High Surf Conditions West Coast Beaches Friday/Friday Night .

SHORT TERM. (Rest of Today through Friday) .

Showers and thunderstorms have started to develop this afternoon out ahead of an approaching cold front. As the cold front gets closer to the area, shower and thunderstorm activity will continue to increase from northwest to southeast as the afternoon progresses into tonight. With plenty of daytime heating taking place out ahead of the front, there is enough instability to support the possibility of Strong to isolated severe thunderstorms especially over the Lake Okeechobee region and portions of the Gulf coast. The strongest thunderstorms could contain strong to damaging wind gusts, small hail, and an isolated tornado. Farther to the southeast, strong to isolated severe thunderstorm development will still be possible out ahead of the front, however, parameters are a little bit more marginal due to gradual loss of upper level support as the best dynamics move off to the northeast. Deep tropical moisture will continue to move into the region this afternoon as forecasted PWAT values could exceed 2 inches out ahead of the approaching front. This will help to contribute to heavy downpours with the stronger thunderstorms. With heavy downpours possible as well as multiple thunderstorms moving over the same area, localized flooding will be a concern over the metro areas through tonight.

The front should push offshore during the early morning hours on Friday. A few lingering showers and thunderstorms will be possible in the morning, however, a drier air mass will gradually push into the region, and these chances of showers and thunderstorms will diminsh as the day progresses. As high pressure builds back into the region, the pressure gradient over South Florida will remain tight. This will allow for a gusty westerly wind flow throughout the day on Friday. High temperatures on Friday will generally range from the lower 80s over the Lake Okeechobee region to the mid to upper 80s over the east coast metro areas.

LONG TERM. (This Weekend) .

A trough of low pressure will continue to move eastward from the Eastern United States into the Atlantic waters. This will allow for the the surface low over the Tennessee Valley to move eastward into the Northern Atlantic Waters which in turn will allow for the wind flow over South Florida to swing from a westerly direction on Saturday to a northerly direction on Sunday. Therefore, there will still be some showers around on Saturday over South Florida but by Sunday the weather will be dry due to the drier air working into the region from the north.

Highs this weekend will be around 80 except in the upper 70s around the Lake Okeechobee region. The lows will be in the 60s except mid to upper 50s west of Lake Okeechobee. The only exception will be Friday night where the lows will be 60s over most areas except around 70 east coast metro areas.

(Early To Middle Of Next Week) . High pressure will build into Southeastern United States for the early to middle of next week. This will allow for the wind flow to swing to more of a easterly direction over South Florida. The weather should remain dry for Monday, but by Tuesday into Wednesday there should be a few showers affecting the east coast metro areas due to the increase low level moisture. Therefore, a slight chance of showers will remain in the forecast for the east coast metro areas for middle of next week.

Highs will slowly warm up into the mid 80s over South Florida by middle of next week. The lows will also warm up and should be back into mid to upper 60s over most areas, except around 70 east coast metro areas by middle of next week.

AVIATION(18Z TAFS). A gusty southwesterly flow will continue across all terminals this afternoon. Showers and thunderstorms will continue to develop from west to east out ahead of an approaching cold front as the afternoon progresses. Periods of MVFR or even IFR are possible in showers and thunderstorms. Short fused amendments will be possible this afternoon into tonight. A gusty west to southwesterly flow continues across all terminals on Friday.

MARINE. As a strong frontal boundary approaches the region this afternoon, scattered to numerous showers and thunderstorms will develop out ahead of it. Some of these thunderstorms could be strong to severe containing strong gusty winds, small hail, and isolated waterspouts. Winds will continue to increase out of the west southwest this afternoon into tonight. As the front passes through, strong westerly winds will continue into Friday and the upcoming weekend. Seas over the Gulf will rapidly increase through Friday as a westerly swell develops behind the front. Small Craft Advisories for the Atlantic and Gulf waters will continue through Friday night. However, they may need to be extended into the upcoming weekend if the current forecast trends continue.

BEACHES. A strong cold front will move through the region later tonight. With a strong westerly wind flow developing, there will be a high risk of rip currents across the Gulf Coast beaches through the end of the week and into the upcoming weekend. The risk of rip currents will also increase across the east coast beaches into the upcoming weekend as a northeasterly swell builds over the Atlantic waters. At the same time, a westerly swell will develop in the Gulf of Mexico resulting in wave heights potentially reaching 6 feet on Friday into Friday night across the Collier County beaches. This will continue to be monitored as a High Surf Advisory may be needed for this time.
