Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Miami FL 635 PM EST Mon Mar 1 2021

AVIATION(00Z TAFS). Mainly VFR conditions will prevail across all terminals this evening. Areas of fog will develop across the interior and west coast late tonight into early Tuesday morning. The latest guidance shows the fog staying west of the east coast terminals while affecting KAPF later tonight. Any fog that does develop will lift after sunrise. Southeasterly winds will increase to around 10 knots by the middle of Tuesday morning.

UPDATE. High pressure will remain in control of the weather pattern across South Florida tonight. With winds continuing to diminsh as the evening progresses combined with enough lower level moisture in place, areas of fog will develop over the interior and west coast late tonight into early Tuesday morning. Some of the fog could become locally dense dropping visibilities to one quarter of a mile or less especially across portions of Glades and Hendry counties. Any fog that does develop will lift shortly after sunrise. The ridge of high pressure will continue to flatten throughout the day on Tuesday as a cold front begins to approach the region from the north. With the front moving slowly moving towards the area, many areas remain dry and warm with the south southeasterly flow in place. There may be a slight chance of showers across the Lake Okeechobee region on Tuesday afternoon as the front gets closer. High temperatures will range from the mid 80s across the east coast metro areas to around 90 across portions of Glades, Hendry, and inland Collier Counties.

PREV DISCUSSION. (Issued 316 PM EST Mon Mar 1 2021)

SHORT TERM .

Tonight and Tuesday .

Upper ridging now prominent from the southwest Gulf of Mexico into the Bahamas will gradually erode along its northern periphery as upstream troughing progresses from the Desert Southwest into the lower Mississippi Valley by Tuesday. Surface ridging should hold across our area for the short-term period, albeit weakening slightly with time as the trough approaches from the north. Despite warm and subsident conditions enough shallow moisture remains for a few weak showers this evening into Tuesday. The "greatest" chances (~15-20%) should be across northern inland areas including Lake Okeechobee and Palm Beach County during the afternoon/evening hours given the prevailing southerly wind component into Tuesday (with both Gulf and Atlantic sea breezes expected tomorrow). Overnight these chances shift into the Atlantic waters and adjacent coastal locations. However we're not looking for any meaningful rainfall during the short term forecast period. Given the lighter wind regime tonight fog development is expected with the greatest focus over Southwest Florida, and the Lake Okeechobee and Gulf Coast regions. Dense fog is possible. Warm temperatures will continue, however with the weaker wind regime inland areas should be a little "cooler" tonight (mid-upper 60s) while coastal areas remain in the lower 70s. Highs tomorrow should top out in the mid to upper 80s away from the coasts, with a few readings around 90 expected over inland Southwest Florida.

LONG TERM . Tuesday night through Sunday night .

Tuesday night should see a surface low pass to the north of the area, along with a 500mb shortwave. This short wave squashes a 500mb ridge that has been over the area as a much broader 500 mb trough is over the eastern US. The surface low should be off the Carolina coast by Wednesday evening. The low has an associated cold front that is forecast to move through South Florida Wednesday night. The front should be mainly a dry passage, with just a slight chance of showers in northern Palm Beach County and the adjacent Atlantic waters. Behind the front, a somewhat cooler air mass should advect in, with highs for the remainder for the forecast period in the 70s to low 80s.

High pressure should keep the area dry for Friday. By late Friday night, another 500 mb short wave moves into the area and initiates cyclogenesis over the northern Gulf. This system looks to be a little further south than this weeks system, and brings a chance of showers and a slight chance of thunderstorms to the area for Saturday into Sunday morning. By late Sunday, high pressure should begin to build once again over the area, bringing dry conditions once again for Sunday night. Of course, this may change depending on the track and timing of the system. But for now, both synoptic models, the GFS and the ECMWF have similar solutions, so confidence is not as low in the extended as usual.

AVIATION(18Z TAFS) .

Primarily VFR ceilings along the coast this afternoon with a mix of VFR/MVFR ceilings inland. Winds turn light and variable this evening with areas of low clouds and fog developing over inland areas. The greatest potential for this is between ~08-13z with the Gulf Coast, Lake Okeechobee, and Everglades areas being most susceptible. While current signals suggest this better potential should remain west of the Atlantic terminals amendments are possible overnight depending upon forecast trends. SE winds return tomorrow afternoon with speeds generally 10 kt or less through the end of the TAF cycle.

MARINE .

Gradually improving marine conditions are expected into mid week. Cautionary to hazardous marine conditions may redevelop for late week into next weekend as a more unsettled weather pattern evolves.

BEACHES .

A high rip current risk continues through this evening with the risk gradually decreasing on Tuesday. Thereafter the risk should increase again for mid to late week.
