Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Miami FL 950 AM EDT Fri Apr 3 2020

Update.

Surface high pressure extending from the Ohio Valley equatorward into the northwest Caribbean Sea will provide for quiet weather across South Florida today. A very dry airmass will persist, with elevated fire danger expected for interior areas today as minimum relative humidity values drop into the 30s. A strong surface cyclone maturing off the New England coast will generate large northeasterly swell across the Atlantic waters today, with periods of enhanced swell likely persisting into early next week. This will bring hazardous marine and beach conditions for the east coast and Atlantic waters, especially for small craft.

Given the arriving swell, model forecast rip current probabilities, and renewed push for additional swell into early next week, extended the high rip current risk for the Palm Beaches through this weekend.

Prev Discussion. /issued 714 AM EDT Fri Apr 3 2020/

Aviation (12Z TAFS) .

VFR. Light and variable winds this morning will shift E-SE around 7-10 kt this afternoon at the eastern terminals. At APF expect a more SWly direction around 17z as the Gulf Breeze pushes inland. A similar weather pattern should prevail for tonight into Saturday.

Prev Discussion . /issued 405 AM EDT Fri Apr 3 2020/

Short Term (Friday through Sunday Morning ) .

A deep low pressure system situated off the the New England coast has generated large northeasterly swell that has created hazardous marine and beach conditions across the waters of Palm Beach County. A Small Craft Advisory and High Risk of Rip Currents remain in effect due to these conditions (see Marine and Beach Discussions below for more details).

South Florida will be under the influence of a mid-level ridge of high pressure situated across the eastern CONUS through this weekend. The modified polar air mass in place across South Florida will be characterized by stable thermodynamic profiles -- featuring warm and dry mid and upper-levels. These stable thermodynamic conditions should suppress the development of any notable convection across the region though this weekend. Prevailing easterly surface flow will maintain adequate boundary layer moisture across the area that will support the development of shallow cumulus fields each afternoon which may be focused along coastal sea breeze boundaries.

Temperatures will be near average through the weekend, with maximum temperatures reaching the upper 70s to lower 80s across the Atlantic coast and mid to upper 80s across the interior and Gulf Coast of South Florida.

Long Term (Sunday through Thursday) .

Warm and mostly dry conditions are forecast through the long term with only a slight chance for rain on Sunday as a weak shortwave crosses the northern Gulf and FL Peninsula. Easterly surface flow Sunday into Monday is expected to gradually become SW to even W Wednesday into Thursday as surface high pressure originally sliding southward along the CONUS east coast ends up situated to the south of us over Cuba/Bahamas. This will cause high temperatures Wednesday and Thursday to climb into the mid/upper 80s to low 90s across the area.

Around midweek rain chances increase to the north of our area across much of the southeast US as the models struggle to resolve some very broad troughing well ahead of a cold front pushing across the Ohio River Valley. Rain chances should remain to our north as the cold front stalls out across North Florida late in the week.

Marine . A Small Craft Advisory remains in effect for the Atlantic waters of Palm Beach County due to large northeasterly swells generated by a deep low pressure system located off the New England coast. Seas in the Gulf Stream will be as high as 6 to 9 feet today. While there may be a temporary break in large swells on Saturday, an additional round of large swells is expected again late this weekend into early next week.

Beach Forecast . The large northeasterly swells have lead to a High Risk of Rip Currents for the Palm Beaches today, with a Moderate Risk for the beaches of Broward and Miami-Dade Counties. Surf conditions will become increasingly rough along the Palm Beach County coast today and will have to be monitored for High Surf Advisory criteria. An elevated rip current risk may continue through at least this weekend.

Fire Weather . High pressure will continue to bring relatively dry conditions to South Florida over the next several days. Minimum relative humidity values will be near 35 percent across inland South Florida this afternoon, while wind speeds should remain below 10 mph across most of South Florida.

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.
