Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Miami FL 338 PM EDT Thu Aug 6 2020

Short Term (Tonight through Friday night). A fairly stagnant upper level pattern is in place across the region as the weekend comes into view. A high pressure aloft and at the surface will continue to overspread the region. This may help limit some of the typical summertime showers and t'storms. Although coverage and intensity may be limited slightly, it will not cut all rain possibilities. A fairly modest easterly flow will be in place, which will help generate some sea breeze activity, especially across the inland areas of South Florida and Lake Region. With the lackluster wind regime and the recent heavy rains over some locations of both metros, expect that some locations will have to deal with additional localized flooding concerns this afternoon. The strongest updrafts will likely also present the possibility of gusty winds.

Tonight things begin to settle down expect perhaps over the Gulf/Atlantic waters. Friday, similar to today will have more diurnally driven showers and storms. With little low level flow, the sea breeze will not surge inland initially meaning convection may form just a bit east of what we'd tend to expect with an easterly flow putting the Atlantic metros within range to see continued showers and Storms Friday. This pattern will generally continue through the short term. Near average (hot) temperatures expected along with muggy overnights.

Long Term (Saturday through Wednesday). Not much change in the long term pattern as the latest computer model guidance continues to show somewhat of a typical summertime pattern through the upcoming weekend and into the early and middle portion of next week. East to southeasterly flow will remain in place as an area of high pressure at the surface in the western Atlantic continues to remain in place. Scattered to numerous showers and thunderstorms will continue to develop each day as the east and west coast sea breezes develop and push inland. The greatest coverage will remain over the interior and west coast sections during the afternoon and evening hours. There will be enough low level moisture in place to also support some shower activity across the Atlantic waters and the immediate east coast during the overnight and early morning hours. High temperatures each afternoon during this time frame will generally range from the upper 80s to around 90 across the east coast and then into the lower to mid 90s across the interior sections.

Marine. High pressure will be in control with a very modest easterly or perhaps east southeasterly flow through the period. This will lead to very favorable marine conditions across the Gulf, Atlantic and Lake waters of South Florida. The only exception would be convective development where locally gusty winds, higher waves, and frequent cloud-to-water lightning will be possible.

Aviation (18z TAFs). VFR conditions expected with perhaps a temporary drop in VIS/CIG for a few inland sites. We have VCs out to cover this, however, a short fused TEMPO may be possible as convection develops through the afternoon. Convection will diminish overnight tonight and winds be mostly become light and variable across the region.

It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. 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.
