Synopsis..A light to moderate east to southeast wind is expected over the marine area today becoming more southerly Monday ahead of an approaching cold front. The strongest winds through Monday will be over the gulf waters. An increasingly strong offshore flow will develop with frontal passage, and will persist through late Wednesday night in its wake. A small craft advisory will likely be required, especially over the gulf waters, by late Tuesday night through at least Wednesday night.

Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Miami FL 1248 PM EST Sun Dec 8 2019

Aviation. Isolated sprinkles will drift westward through late afternoon across South Florida. While this activity could produce localized MVFR ceilings, confidence in impacts at any TAF site is very low. VCSH mention has been included at FLL/OPF/MIA to encompass the general area of short-term potential for this activity. Otherwise, easterly winds are forecast to gradually turn more southeasterly through Monday -- with the potential for variable winds this afternoon at APF related to a sea-breeze boundary.

Prev Discussion. /issued 801 AM EST Sun Dec 8 2019/

Update .

Surface observations and the first visible satellite images of the day suggest that a segment of a quasi-zonal, diffuse baroclinic zone has become frontogenetically reinforced along the vicinity of coastal Palm Beach County and the adjacent Atlantic waters. This is likely a peripheral response to the intensification of surface ridging well north of the area -- off the southeast states and Mid-Atlantic coast. Indeed, midlevel water vapor loops imply a trough-succeeding zone of strong subsidence spreading off the GA/SC coast -- serving to reinforce the surface ridging.

The peripheral frontogenetic response appears to be resolved by both mesoscale and global models, with the ensuing west-northwest/ east-southeast-oriented enhanced frontal circulation forecast to spread westward/southwestward across South Florida through the day. While the theta-e contrast across this boundary is very weak in magnitude, its interaction with shallow moisture is maintaining, and should continue to maintain, increased cloud coverage through the day. This is apparent via the aforementioned visible satellite imagery and in preceding 10.3-3.9-micron satellite data. As a result, the forecast has been updated to include higher cloud coverage -- principally focused over the eastern half of the forecast area where the effects of marine- layer influxes and frictional convergence along the east coast vicinity should contribute to mesoscale ascent and cloud coverage.

Moreover, radar loops and surface observations suggest sporadic and spotty precipitation -- mainly in the form of very isolated sprinkles -- emanating from the mechanically-forced and shallow cloud coverage around Palm Beach County. With the frontogenetic circulation slightly more robust, slight chances for sprinkles were expanded across the forecast area through the day. In fact, some model guidance suggests the potential for measurable precipitation. However, sufficient insolation -- though more limited than previously anticipated -- should yield adequate vertical mixing to offset boundary-layer moisture retention today. This detracts confidence in measurable precipitation amounts materializing -- which are predominantly depicted by those numerical models principally leveraging local planetary boundary layer parameterization schemes resulting in a mixing under-bias. As a result, measurable precipitation is highly unlikely, though the forecast reflects the potential -- albeit very low -- for sporadic sprinkles to extend across a broader part of South Florida through the day.

The increased cloud coverage is forecast to mute diurnal, diabatic surface-layer heating to some extent today -- particularly over eastern parts of the forecast area. As a result, high temperatures have been lowered by a degree or two for today, principally across east coast metro areas and vicinity. High temperatures today are forecast to be in the upper 70s, except lower 80s across southwest FL.

The overall confidence in cloud, precipitation, and temperature trends is lower than average for day-1 forecast concerns -- owing to the mesoscale dependence on subtle boundary-layer features. Observational data and short-range model guidance will continue to be closely monitored through the day for possible updates to related forecast elements. Nevertheless, reasonable outcomes for sensible weather today are not expected to produce substantial impacts.

Additionally, with the increased onshore-flow component for the Atlantic beaches especially in Palm Beach County, a moderate risk for rip currents is being introduced for the Palm Beach County beaches for today. A slight risk continues for other South Florida beaches.

Short Term . Latest IR/WV satellite imagery, radar and sfc analyses depict a ragged-looking cloud line, associated with a decaying fragment of a stationary front, and located around the Lake area. A few coastal showers have lingered during the early morning hours east of Palm Beach county, but for the most part, this feature is generating enhanced cloud cover but no significant rain over land so far.

Today, models show that the aforementioned dissipating boundary will have little or no effect on the overall sfc winds, which will go back to a generally E/NE flow this afternoon. Only a few showers are possible, mostly against the northern portions of Palm Beach county where the best pool of moisture will reside.

The persistent mid level cloud cover canopy south of the decaying boundary will help in keeping afternoon temps a little cooler today than in previous days, with highs in the upper 70s to lower 80s. Also, while patchy fog is certainly possible late tonight, the persistent cloud deck and limited low level moisture will likely hinder any attempts of fog development during the overnight hours.

For Monday, global models show broad high pressure centered over the central east US coast expanding into the Florida peninsula, with its southern periphery keeping SoFlo under a generally SE wind regime. This will push afternoon max temps into the mid to upper over interior and west coast areas, and low 80s for the coastal metro areas.

Long Term . Tuesday .

High pressure from the Atlantic will maintain control of the weather pattern with southeasterly winds and warmer temperatures into the mid 80s. South Florida will be mainly dry but can not rule out a few showers over the Atlantic or brushing the east coast as the SE winds bring increased moisture to the region.

Wednesday and Thursday .

As we approach mid-week a mid to upper level trough will be moving across the eastern US with an attendant cold front approaching the region Wednesday slowly moving down the peninsula. Models have had trouble the past few days going back and forth-between a frontal passage and the front stalling across the region or even just north around the Lake area Thursday. Sufficient moisture ahead of and along the front will allow for increased rain chances with scattered showers across South Florida Wednesday and Thursday.

Friday into Next Weekend .

Winds remain easterly across the region with increased moisture continuing across the area. Models depict a low pressure system developing in the central Gulf along the stalled out frontal boundary. Another trough moving across the US will pick up this low and eject it northeastward through the peninsula and up the east coast. With the low in the vicinity it will continue to allow scattered showers across South Florida.

Models have been varying run to run and will continue to monitor the long term forecast for the front and low pressure development.

Marine . Easterly flow returns today to the coastal waters, occasionally breezy, through today. Seas will mainly be 2 feet or less, with only isolated sprinkles possible over the Palm Beach and Broward County coastal waters, mainly this morning. During early to middle parts of next week, the approach of a weather system from the west will correspond to a gradual increase in east to southeast winds. By the middle of next week, deteriorating marine conditions could materialize as winds and waves increase, while shower activity also has the potential to increase.

Beach Forecast . For early to middle parts of the week, increasing onshore flow could result in an increase in rip-current risk for the Atlantic beaches. Shower chances will also increase during the mid-week time frame.
