AMZ600 Synopsis For Jupiter Inlet To Ocean Reef Fl Out To 60 Nm And For East Cape Sable To Bonita Beach Fl Out To 60 Nm- 1106 Am Est Fri Dec 6 2019
Synopsis..High pressure is set to weaken today, as a weak upper level disturbance moves across the area. This will cause the wind to shift more east southeast today, as well as bring in a warmer air mass. Then, by Saturday, weak low pressure develops over both the gulf and atlantic waters, bringing a few more clouds to the area on Saturday, and causes the wind to shift more northeasterly. Otherwise, no significant weather is forecast until at least Wednesday, when the next frontal system moves into the area and brings good chances of northerly swells producing large waves and hazardous boating conditions over the atlantic waters for the end of the work week.
Gulf stream hazards..None the approximate location of the west wall of the gulf stream as of dec 05, 2019 at 1200 utc... 9 nautical miles east southeast of fowey rocks. 23 nautical miles east northeast of port everglades. 11 nautical miles east northeast of lake worth. 9 nautical miles east northeast of jupiter inlet.

Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Miami FL 1246 PM EST Fri Dec 6 2019

Aviation. VFR expected to prevail during the next 24 hours at all TAF sites. Winds will turn light and variable after 00Z, them becoming SE around 8KT Saturday afternoon.

Prev Discussion. /issued 935 AM EST Fri Dec 6 2019/

Update . No changes needed to be made to the previous forecast as everything is on track. An area of high pressure will start to move off to the east today which will help to shift the wind flow to more of an east to southeasterly direction. This will allow for warmer temperatures to move into the region as well. High temperatures today will range from the mid 70s across the northwestern interior to the lower 80s across the southwestern interior. High pressure will keep the dry conditions in place for tonight as well, however, temperatures will not be as cool as they have been over the past couple of night. Low temperatures will range from around 50 across the northwestern interior to the lower 60s across the east coast.

Prev Discussion . /issued 251 AM EST Fri Dec 6 2019/

Short Term . Today through Saturday Evening . While the models show an active pattern, the weather itself is forecast to remain quiet and dry for the end of the week, and the beginning of the weekend.

High pressure, currently over the southeastern US this morning, should move off to the east through the day. This should allow for the surface flow to become more east to southeasterly today, advecting a warmer airmass into the area, along with a bit more moisture.

Looking aloft, a 500 mb short wave approaches the area today, and moves across the area tonight. At the surface, a weak low should develop over the northeastern Gulf, as well as a weaker surface low over the Atlantic waters off Central/North Florida. Models are indicating a weak frontal boundary may accompany these lows, producing some shower activity well away from South Florida. This front stalls well to the north by Saturday, never bringing any significant weather to the area through Saturday evening.

So, basically, warmer for the next couple of days, with some increasing cloud cover is really all that is in store for South Florida for Friday through Saturday.

Long Term . Sunday through Next Week .

The aforementioned weak surface low passing north of the region will keep South Florida under easterly flow to end the weekend and begin the week. Very low rain chances of only a few showers mainly over the local waters possible to end the weekend into early next week.

Mid-week models continue to depict a mid-upper level trough moving across the eastern US with a low pressure system moving through the Great Lakes with a cold front draped to the south moving through the southeast US. Ahead of this front winds will veer southeast advecting more moisture into the region beginning Wednesday with rain chances increasing along the eastern portion of the peninsula and the Atlantic waters. It is still early as models continue to have differences on timing and strength of this frontal passage. While individual models differ, will continue with the consensus at this time with increased shower potential ahead of the front for South Florida.

Temperatures will be back near normal or a couple degrees in the upper 70s to lower 80s when winds become more southerly. The noticeable increase will be in dewpoint temperatures rising back into the mid to upper 60s with humidity increasing.

Marine . No significant weather for the area, with high pressure slowly weakening today, and a front stalling well to the north. This should keep the area dry, with little impact to marine conditions through Saturday evening.

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.
