area forecast discussion
national weather service miami fl
135 am edt Fri aug 23 2019

Aviation
A tropical disturbance with a weak center of rotation located over
the bahamas, generally southeast of mia this morning, will bring
increased chances for +ra and possibly a few +ts this afternoon to
the entire area. Some of the convection may also bring some brief
ifr conditions across the area. As convection weakens tonight,
conditions should improve. Currently, the impact south florida
looks to be mainly increased chances of heavy rain over the next
few days.

Prev discussion issued 854 pm edt Thu aug 22 2019
update...

previous forecast appears to be on track. Activity has largely
died down over land this evening, but showers and perhaps a few
thunderstorms will remain over the atlantic waters and east coast
overnight.

Prev discussion... Issued 442 pm edt Thu aug 22 2019
discussion...

tonight...

showers and thunderstorms currently ongoing across much of the
area this afternoon should continue to push southwestward through
the evening before gradually diminishing. Additional showers and
perhaps a few thunderstorms will be possible overnight,
particularly over the atlantic waters and east coast region.

Friday through Sunday...

heavy rainfall possible Friday through this weekend...

tomorrow through the weekend should be fairly interesting as a
trough of low pressure currently over the bahamas pushes
northwestward across the area. A lot of uncertainty lies with this
system, which the national hurricane center has given a 10% chance
for development over 48 hours and a 30% chance over the next 5
days. Regardless of development, the primary hazard to south
florida with this system will be the potential for heavy rainfall
with periods of showers and thunderstorms throughout the weekend.

Super moist air overhead, as evidenced by this morning's sounding
(2.3 inch pw) and the GOES satellite, will stick around and
perhaps get even more moist as the trough drags additional
tropical moisture into the area. Models still don't have a great
handle on this system, with the ECMWF keeping the feature just to
our east as it slides northward up the coast. The GFS has a much
different and very interesting solution, where it appears the
mid- level and low-level circulations get separated as the mid-
level circulation gets pulled northward while the low-level
circulation continues westward across the southern peninsula. The
gfs favors a weaker overall disturbance, but this solution would
actually translate into more rainfall for south florida as the
trough would initiate several rounds of widespread showers and
thunderstorms. With pws as high as they are, any showers and
storms that develop will be capable of producing heavy rainfall
and possibly some minor flooding in urban areas. As such, the
weather prediction center has placed south florida in a marginal
risk for excessive rainfall on Friday.

The ECMWF solution favors a slightly stronger disturbance,
holding itself together as it pushes northward as one unit. While
showers and thunderstorms will still be possible with this
solution, the coverage would likely be lower as we could be
positioned in the "dry slot" of the system on the west side. Due
to this uncertainty, wpc is only carrying south florida in a
marginal risk for excessive rainfall for Friday and Friday night.

If it looks like the weaker wetter solution is coming to fruition,
a marginal risk for excessive rainfall would likely be required
for all of south florida Saturday and perhaps Sunday as well. The
possibility of increasing the risk of excessive rainfall up to a
slight along the east coast metro areas has also been discussed
since those areas have received a lot of rainfall within the last
month already. In that case, a targeted flood watch may need to be
considered at that time. Ultimately, these decisions will have to
be made once we have a better handle on the strength track of
this trough of low pressure and are able to see how much rainfall
we receive in the first round or two on Friday.

Early next week...

some uncertainty is present in the forecast for early next week
due to the expected arrival of a surface trough approaching from
the east late this week and over the weekend; a feature that the
model guidance has been struggling to resolve thus far. There
should be plenty of sufficient moisture still present over south
florida as the surface trough lifts northward and begins to
interact with a stalling frontal boundary over the southeastern
u.S. Early in the week. Expect southerly to southwesterly winds
throughout south florida to help focus the majority of convection
over the interior lake okeechobee region as well as palm beach
county.

Late next week...

once the surface trough progresses out of the vicinity of south
florida, expect the synoptic pattern to return to a more typical
summertime one, with atlantic high pressure building into the
peninsula. During this time, winds will become more light and
southerly, allowing for the formation of both atlantic and gulf
sea breezes. Most of the convection should be driven by a
combination of sea breeze and thunderstorm boundary interactions
and diurnal heating. Storm coverage is expected to be greatest
over the lake okeechobee interior region as well as the gulf coast
during this period.

Marine...

generally easterly to southeasterly winds are expected for the
next few days, becoming more southerly by the end of the weekend.

A trough of low pressure currently over the bahamas will bring
periods of showers and thunderstorms to all local waters. Gusty
winds and locally higher seas will be possible in and near any
showers and thunderstorms.
