Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Miami FL 624 AM EST Sat Feb 29 2020

Aviation. VFR prevails during the next 24 hours at all terminals. Light NW winds will gradually increase to around 10-12kt this afternoon and through this evening with maybe a few occasional higher gust, then light again overnight.

Prev Discussion. /issued 213 AM EST Sat Feb 29 2020/

Short Term . Today-Sunday night .

Latest sfc and model analyses data depict a broad, deep high pressure system anchored over the eastern Gulf and the Florida peninsula, with a mid level ridge extending across much of the SE CONUS. Meanwhile, a low is developing near the TN valley, with an associated sfc frontal boundary across central GA and the Carolinas. This synoptic setup will keep SoFlo under persisting northerly flow, and reinforcing cold/dry air advection. The result will be continuing benign weather conditions with no rain expected, generally clear to partly cloudy skies, and temperatures remaining well below seasonal normals.

Afternoon highs will just warm up a couple of degrees compared to yesterday, but most areas will remain in the upper 60s, with coastal locations having the best chance of hitting 70. Nighttime lows will again drop into the upper 30s-low 40s interior and northern areas, with the rest of SoFlo in the mid-upper 40s, maybe around 50 near the coast.

For Sunday, model solutions take the aforementioned ridge and begin sliding it eastward and into the west Atlantic, allowing for winds to gradually veer to a more easterly regime across SoFlo. This will begin modifying the air mass over the area with a gradual warming trend establishing. Afternoon highs on Sunday should climb up back into the low-mid 70s over the eastern half of SoFlo, and upper 70s near the west coast.

Despite the veering of the winds and having a warmer, little more moist air mass, model soundings still depict very dry conditions continuing on Sunday with PWATS below 1 inch and dominating subsidence in place.

All in all, very nice weather continues across SoFlo for the rest of the weekend. Enjoy!

Long Term . Monday through Friday night .

The extended forecast call for mostly dry conditions under high pressure. Models are showing a continued warming trend through the middle of the week, with highs back into the mid to upper 80s across South Florida by Wednesday.

Through the day on Wednesday, models are showing the ridge of high pressure at the surface begins to quickly break down ahead of an approaching cold front. By 12z Wednesday, a 500mb trough should be exiting the Texas Gulf Coast. This is actually a secondary trough, which is associated with a stronger trough much further north, over the Great Lakes region. There is a surface low with the main trough, with a cold front extended down the Appalacians Wednesday morning. With the secondary 500mb trough, another surface low should develop along the cold front on Wednesday.

This secondary surface low should remain weak, but provide enough circulation around it to push the cold front through South Florida by mid day Thursday. This front, while currently only looking like showers for the South Florida area for Thursday and Friday, should bring a slight cool down for the area, as well as a somewhat drier air mass. Low temperatures behind this front are forecast to be mainly from around 50 in the western Lake region to around 60 for the Atlantic metro area.

Marine . Periods of gusty NW/NNW winds will create hazardous boating conditons for small craft today, mainly over the Atlantic and offshore Gulf waters, for which an Advisory has been issued. Seas will be 3 to 6 feet over the Atlantic waters and 3 to 5 feet in the Gulf, with occasional higher sets. Conditions should begin improving later this evening as pressure gradients across the region begin to relax as the high pressure across the SE CONUS gradually migrates eastward.

Beach Forecast . A moderate risk of rip currents continue for the Gulf and Palm beach county beaches through Sunday. Beyond the weekend, the rip current risk will decrease for the Gulf and increase early next week for the entire east coast as flow turns more out of the east.

Fire Weather . Relative humidity values are likely to drop below critical thresholds again this afternoon, with multiple hours below 35 percent possible across all of South Florida. This will lead to enhanced fire weather conditions. However, wind critical thresholds are not expected to be met.

Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
