New SHORT TERM, LONG TERM, MARINE, BEACHES

SHORT TERM
(Today through Monday)
Issued at 226 AM EDT Sun Apr 21 2024

For the remainder of the weekend, the prevailing mid-level atmospheric pattern over South Florida will gradually weaken as a deepening trough moves southeastward from the Plains into the Southeast. Simultaneously, high-pressure systems at the surface will shift eastward into the Atlantic, while a frontal boundary remains stationary over the Gulf Coast States and edges southeastward, expected to pass through Northern Florida tonight and into Sunday. This movement will alter the wind direction, transitioning from southeasterly to more south to southwesterly today. Moisture influx during this period may lead to isolated showers and possibly a thunderstorm, especially where sea breezes converge across interior regions this afternoon and again on Sunday afternoon. However, due to limited support from upper levels, this convection is likely to be brief and shallow.
Temperatures will climb into the upper 80s and lower 90s across most areas.

Models are consistent in predicting the arrival of a frontal boundary on Monday, likely reaching South Florida by late afternoon or evening. This front is expected to lack strong dynamic support as its parent trough moves across the Eastern CONUS, diminishing the likelihood of widespread severe weather.
Instead, scattered showers and a few thunderstorms are anticipated, particularly if a mid-level shortwave interacts with the region, potentially enhancing instability, especially around Lake Okeechobee and Palm Beach County. Consequently, the northern portion of South Florida, especially north of Interstate 75, is under a marginal risk for severe weather according to the Storm Prediction Center.

LONG TERM
(Monday night through Saturday)
Issued at 226 AM EDT Sun Apr 21 2024

Looking ahead to the long term, the forecast indicates a persistent easterly wind pattern, occasionally becoming breezy.
This wind regime will contribute to consistently mild to warm weather throughout the week, possibly showing a slight uptick in temperatures toward the weeks end. Anticipate maximum temperatures ranging from the low to mid 80s, while overnight lows will settle in the upper 60s to lower 70s.

AVIATION
(06Z TAFS)
Issued at 124 AM EDT Sun Apr 21 2024

Generally VFR with light and variable winds tonight. Southeasterly to southerly wind flow returns in the morning with sea breezes expected to develop by the afternoon. APF will have onshore flow develop and turn westerly by the afternoon. Some late afternoon/early evening convection over the interior could develop just west of PBI/FXE/FLL and any remnant convection could retreat to the Atlantic later in the evening.

MARINE
Issued at 226 AM EDT Sun Apr 21 2024

Today, a continuation of the gentle to moderate southeasterly wind flow is anticipated, gradually transitioning to southwesterly directions and slightly intensifying over the Atlantic waters.
Looking ahead to the upcoming week, easterly winds will prevail over much of the local waters. Throughout the week, easterly winds will persist, contributing to overall conditions. Wave heights in the Gulf waters will remain at 2 feet or less, while the Atlantic waters will experience wave heights ranging from 2 to 4 feet.

BEACHES
Issued at 226 AM EDT Sun Apr 21 2024

An elevated risk for rip currents will remain in place for Palm Beach County. As winds shift onshore by Monday, a high risk for rip currents will develop for all of the Atlantic beaches. This risk may continue into the middle of the week as another frontal boundary approaches.
