New SHORT TERM, LONG TERM, MARINE, BEACHES

SHORT TERM
(Today through Wednesday)
Issued at 222 AM EDT Tue Apr 16 2024

Conditions across South Florida will remain dry and seasonable through the short term as surface high pressure and stout upper-level ridging prevail over the region. Breezy easterly winds along the periphery of the surface high - currently located over the western Atlantic - will continue to advect low-level moisture over the area which could result in a few cumulus clouds developing during peak daytime heating. However, strong subsidence from ridging aloft will help keep rain changes to a minimum.

Temperatures today will rise to the low-mid 80s across much of South Florida. Overnight temperatures will drop to the low 60s over the interior and low 70s along the East Coast. On Wednesday, highs could reach the upper 80s across portions of southwest FL.

LONG TERM
(Wednesday night through Monday)
Issued at 222 AM EDT Tue Apr 16 2024

Upper level ridging will prevail across the Gulf of Mexico and the Florida peninsula through much of the extended period, allowing for generally dry and warm conditions to continue.
Near the surface, high pressure will remain over the western Atlantic through the end of the work week, allowing for continued easterly flow across the area.

Temperatures will gradually warm through the period, with highs reaching the lower 90s across much of the interior near the end of the work week, and approaching the mid 90s during the weekend.
Conditions along the East Coast may remain slightly cooler thanks to onshore flow, with highs in the mid to upper 80s through much of the period.

AVIATION
(06Z TAFS)
Issued at 105 AM EDT Tue Apr 16 2024

VFR through the 06Z TAF period. Light easterly winds this morning pick up to 10-15 kts with gusts around 20 kts late morning through the afternoon. A brief westerly Gulf breeze is expected at APF after 20Z. Winds late tonight slack off to 10 kts or less.

MARINE
Issued at 222 AM EDT Tue Apr 16 2024

A moderate to fresh easterly wind flow will continue across the local waters through the middle of the week as high pressure remains in place over the Western Atlantic. These winds will slowly subside and become southeasterly heading towards the end of the week as the surface high shifts eastward. Seas across the Atlantic waters will range from 2 to 4 feet through the middle of the week while seas across the Gulf waters remain at 2 feet or less.

BEACHES
Issued at 222 AM EDT Tue Apr 16 2024

A high risk for rip currents will develop along all Atlantic Beaches on Tuesday as onshore flow strengthens. The high risk will continue through at least mid week, before starting to decrease late in the week as winds become lighter.

FIRE WEATHER
Issued at 220 AM EDT Tue Apr 16 2024

Dry airmass will continue across South FL with high pressure in control. Min RH values in the 30s are expected over interior and SW FL locations today. Despite winds not meeting critical thresholds, low RH values and persistent dry weather will result in continued fire weather concerns.
