area forecast discussion
national weather service miami fl
736 pm edt Fri oct 18 2019

Aviation
MainlyVFR conditons will prevail through this evening. There
could be some shower development especially at kapf and kpbi,
however, most of the activity should remain north and west of the
east coast terminals. During the overnight hours, patchy fog could
develop across portions of the interior and west coast sections.

More shower and thunderstorm activity will redevelop across the
area during the overnight hours and periods of MVFR are possible
during this time frame.

Update
Updated the forecast based on current radar trends. Most of the
shower and thunderstorm activity is located across the lake
okeechobee region this evening and this will continue to spread
northeastward. Tropical storm nestor is located over the central
portion of the gulf of mexico and it will continue to bring
impacts across northern florida during the overnight hours and
through Saturday morning. At the same time, a dissipating cold
front near the lake okeechobee region will continue to gradually
move northward and it will keep south florida in the warm sector.

Shower and thunderstorm coverage will continue to increase during
the overnight hours and into Saturday morning. At the same time,
wind shear will become enhanced tonight, which will allow for
enough favorable support for the possibility of some strong
thunderstorms and even possible tornadic activity with the best
chances over the lake okeechobee region.

Prev discussion issued 320 pm edt Fri oct 18 2019
short term...

tonight-Saturday: the latest forecast for nestor over the central
gulf of mexico brings its impacts across northern florida
sometime between the overnight hours and through Saturday morning.

Meanwhile, a decaying frontal boundary near the lake okeechobee
region will gradually migrate northward during the next couple of
days and keep soflo on the warm sector. This overall synoptic
scenario will allow for shower and storm coverage to gradually
increase through the overnight hours and into Saturday morning.

Expect wind shear to become enhanced tonight, which combined with
the aforementioned factors, may provide enough favorable support for
some strong cells and even possible tornadic activity across the
soflo, with best chances over northern areas.

With increasing cloud cover through Saturday afternoon, expect some
lower daytime temps compared with previous days. Daytime highs
should remain in the mid-upper 80s tomorrow.

Long term...

Saturday night and Sunday...

tropical storm nestor is forecast to track from southeast georgia
on Saturday towards eastern north carolina on Sunday while
interacting with a mid-latitude trough. The leading edge of the
attendant warm advection wing should stretch from coastal georgia
towards the northwest bahamas, with a cold front located across
the eastern gulf of mexico. A southwest to northeast oriented
low-level jet should bring an area of focused warm moist
advection from the gulf coast towards the lake okeechobee region,
supporting a broken line of showers and thunderstorms early
Saturday evening. Their intensity and coverage should wane through
the night as the dynamic system departs and the low-level wind
field correspondingly weakens. A few strong thunderstorms are
possible during the early evening before the environment becomes
less conducive for this threat through the night. Given the warm
advection regime overnight lows will be quite mild ranging from
the lower 70s for the lake region to the lower 80s along the
atlantic coast.

Ridging begins building aloft of Sunday as nestor pulls away from
the region. South to southwest low-level flow will maintain a
decent moisture feed into south florida with a pinned atlantic
sea breeze convergence zone aiding in convective initiation. The
greatest coverage of showers and storms is expected across
northeast portions of our area (palm beach county) given this
regime, although scattered showers and a few storms are possible
elsewhere. Expect less in the way of coverage and intensity with
thunderstorms on Sunday given the warming temperatures and building
heights aloft. Warm readings will persist with highs mostly in
the upper 80s to lower 90s.

Monday through Friday...

seasonal and benign conditions are expected into Tuesday. Rain
chances increase by mid week as a cold front approaches the area. By
late week the front is forecast to stall somewhere in the
vicinity of the florida straits. Slightly cooler temperatures are
possible by week's end along with shower chances given the front
in the vicinity.

Aviation(18z tafs)...

based on radar trends and satellite coverage, vcts mention has
been moved to 20z and after as convection hasn't materialized
through 17z. But periods of MVFR are still possible for the later
part of this afternoon as winds remain generally sse and low
level moisture gradually increase. A good deck of mid upper lvl
clouds might hinder sfc heating for the remainder of this
afternoon, so there is not enough confidence for other than vcts
after 20z for now. Next chance at thunderstorm activity will be
Saturday after 08z as the potential tropical cyclone over the gulf
moves into northern florida. This system also tightens pressure
gradients Saturday afternoon with possible periods of breezy and
gusty S ssw winds.

Marine...

hazardous marine conditions are expected for the gulf waters through
Saturday night as tropical storm nestor tracks from the central gulf
towards the florida panhandle. A small craft advisory is in effect
for all gulf waters from this evening through Saturday night due to
elevated winds and seas. Cautionary conditions are also expected for
the atlantic waters during this time. Showers and thunderstorms,
some potentially strong, will increase in coverage for tonight into
the weekend across all local waters.

Beaches...

hazardous beach conditions are anticipated along the gulf coast as
tropical storm nestor tracks from the central gulf towards the
florida panhandle over the weekend. There is a high risk for rip
currents through Sunday, with minor coastal flooding possible
through the first half of Sunday as well.
