Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Miami FL 213 AM EST Wed Nov 25 2020

. Atlantic High Rip Current Risk Continues . . Generally dry and mild Thanksgiving Day forecast .

Short Term (Today through Thanksgiving Day). Surface high pressure extending south across the eastern seaboard of the United States will keep a persistent easterly flow over South Florida through this week. Aloft, high pressure will remain over the region through late week. An approaching frontal boundary associated with a mid-level disturbance pushing through the central United States will be unable to advance past Central Florida due to the high pressure and the departing mid-level impulse pulling away to the northeast towards the Great Lakes region and northeastern United States.

For today, a low level impulse moving along the easterly flow around the ridge could allow for some isolated shower activity to persist over the Atlantic waters and eastern half of the peninsula in the morning, pushing westward in the late morning and early afternoon. Otherwise the pattern will remain fairly dry with just some isolated Atlantic showers possible. Temperatures will remain around seasonal averages, though portions of Southwest Florida could run a few degrees warmer in the afternoons due to the easterly flow allowing the air mass a chance to warm up as it traverses over the peninsula. Thanksgiving Day should generally be a dry day with temperatures reaching into the lower to mid 80s.

Long Term (Thanksgiving Night through Early Next Week). Benign, dry, and seasonal conditions for the bulk of the extended period as a dome of high pressure aloft engulfs the region which some of us are "thankful" for. With high pressure in firm control this week, model consensus continues to keep a cold front well to the north of our area Friday into Saturday. As the high slides eastward during this week, upper-level zonal flow across the region will be of westerly orientation. At the surface, easterly winds will prevail. As precipitable waters values during the first part of this week are within the 1.0 to 1.4 inches range, isolated sprinkles along the adjacent Atlantic waters and the east coast of South Florida cannot be ruled out. Anything that develops will be shallow and short-lived in nature. Throughout the remainder of the week, temperatures will remain near seasonal, with high temps in the low 80s and overnight temps in the upper 60s to low 70s.

Going towards the end of the weekend into early next week, there continues to be a little bit of amount of uncertainty with the forecast as long-term model guidance remains split, although not to the extreme as what it formally was. Both the GFS and ECMWF agree on a pretty strong FROPA early next week, though what they differ on is timing and intensity. However, recent guidance is starting to align on the overall placement of the associated parent low, but of course this can change (details below) .

1. The GFS takes a deep, amplified low across the SE CONUS before sliding northeastward towards the NE CONUS. Timing on FROPA is overnight Monday into Tuesday morning with dynamics aligning for perhaps strong storms to develop along with a clean sweep and decent CAA in its wake.

2. The ECMWF now hints at a low that looks to be stronger than previous model runs along with it tracking into the SE CONUS and eventually towards the NE CONUS (previous runs had the low skirting along the northern GOMEX). Timing has also nudged forward with an anticipated FROPA sometime Tuesday morning. The ECMWF also looks to make a clean sweep now with ample CAA in its wake but the dynamics aren't quite there yet to support strong storms like the GFS.

Despite the uncertainty involved with the end of the long-term period along with an anticipated FROPA, this portion of the forecast period will be important to monitor for potential weather impacts and changes in forecast. I think we can confidently say we will see a frontal passage early next week; however, there are a couple questions in play still . (1) how cold will the temps be behind the front, and (2) will there be strong to severe storms ahead of the boundary. With that said, handled PoPs and temperatures with a model blend.

Marine. The easing gradient should allow the wind speeds to drop below SCA this morning, though gusty breezes will continue creating the need for small craft to exercise caution over most of the unsheltered waters today. The next cold front late Monday into Tuesday could bring increasing wind and deteriorating marine conditions in its wake.

Beach Forecast. The persistent easterly flow and northeasterly swell will allow the elevated rip current risk to continue through the rest of the week along the Atlantic beaches. Have extended the Rip Current Statement through the evening on Thanksgiving to account for this, though the risk should start to gradually diminish heading into the weekend.

Prev Discussion. /issued 1217 AM EST Wed Nov 25 2020/

Aviation . Generally VFR, though some brief bouts of MVFR are possible with shallow Atlantic showers around the east coast terminals this morning. Easterly flow will remain gusty through Thursday. Isolated shower activity spurred by a perturbation moving westward could push inland and towards APF later this morning into the afternoon.

In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
