Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Miami FL 124 PM EDT Sun Jul 12 2020

Aviation. Scattered showers and thunderstorms across the region this afternoon with VCTS at all sites. MVFR/IFR cigs with storms that move directly over terminals. Convection should diminish later this evening with light winds overnight. Southwest winds once again tomorrow.

Prev Discussion. /issued 939 AM EDT Sun Jul 12 2020/

Update . Scattered showers with embedded thunderstorms have been ongoing once again this morning over the local waters, southwest Florida and the interior.

Another day of scattered showers and thunderstorms across South Florida. Under southwesterly flow activity will move northeast across the interior towards the east coast metro later this morning and afternoon. The morning 12Z sounding was a little drier, as was expected yesterday, as a bit of an isolated drier mid-level slot has nudged in over extreme southeastern portions of the peninsula. Given the flow pattern and current activity the highest rain chances will be northern Miami-Dade counties through Palm Beach and the Lake region later today.

While flow has increase out of the southwest around 10 to 15 knots, flooding will still be the main concern with this activity due to training of storms over the same area and high rainfall rates. Other impacts will be frequent lightning and a very isolated risk of a strong wind gust. The atmosphere parameters are not very impressive with poor mid-level lapse rates of 5.5-5.7 C/km and 500mb temp around -5C. This does not support widespread strong updrafts or robust convection. However, dont want to rule out a gusty downburst over an area that may get more clearing and diurnal heating.

Given the added cloud cover and rain coverage temps will stay in the low 90s, but given the later start to convection compared to yesterday we will be able to be a few degrees warmer than yesterday. Heat indices will be in the triple digits with highest values over Palm Beach and southwest Florida up to 107.

Prev Discussion . /issued 312 AM EDT Sun Jul 12 2020/

Short Term (Today through Monday) . An unsettled pattern continues as a mid-level trough sits over the region today. At the surface, the ridge axis of high pressure extending from the Atlantic over the Florida Straits and Cuba. This ridge axis location will keep much of the region in light southwesterly to westerly surface flow. Sea breeze development is expected again today with the flow restricting the Atlantic sea breeze progress inland yet again today. Morning convection along the Gulf coast will transition to a more widespread coverage over the interior before a focus along the east half of the peninsula comes in the afternoon and early evening. The additional cloud cover and earlier convective start in most areas should allow temperatures to remain a bit cooler than in previous days with temperatures in the lower 90s similar to Saturday in most areas.

The afternoon convection has a chance to produce an isolated strong cell or two again. The primary concerns are localized damaging wind gusts, torrential rainfall, frequent lightning, and funnel clouds around boundary collisions. Precipitable water values exceeding 2 inches do combine with a slow storm motion to create a concern for minor street flooding again today if an area were to see repeated rainfall. One positive aspect of the moist atmosphere is that lapse rates in the hail growth zone are not very robust (less than 6 C/km) which keeps the threat of hail low, though not non-zero if a strong updraft were to develop and persist. The main convective focus will again by boundaries such as remnants from previous convective activity and the sea breezes.

Long Term (Tuesday through Saturday) . An area of high pressure will dominate the weather pattern across South Florida on Tuesday and Wednesday. The general wind flow across the region will be weak during this time frame which will allow for the east and west coast sea breezes to develop and push inland. Scattered showers and thunderstorms will develop along the sea breezes as they move inland. With the relatively weak wind flow in place, storm motion will be determined by sea breeze boundary collisions as well as outflow boundary propagation. The greatest chances of showers and thunderstorms will be over the interior sections. High temperatures will remain on the warm side through the middle of the week as they will rise into the lower 90s across the east coast metro areas and into the mid to upper 90s across the interior sections.

As Thursday approaches, the weather pattern across the region will begin to change. Both of the GFS and the ECMWF continue to show an inverted surface trough moving into the region from the Bahamas. This will allow for deep tropical moisture to advect into the area and an increased chance of showers and thunderstorms through the end of the week and into next weekend. With the increased amount of moisture in place, the potential for heavy rainfall and some flooding of the urban and poor drainage areas will be in place. This will continue to be monitored as the week progresses. High temperatures during the end of the week will range from around 90 across the east coast to the lower to mid 90s across the interior sections.

Marine . Generally benign marine conditions are expected through mid week. Later in the week, an approaching inverted trough could create increasing winds and waves. Isolated to scattered showers and thunderstorms will be possible and may create locally hazardous winds and seas. Waterspouts are also possible with this activity.
