Synopsis.. A stalled frontal boundary will be the focus for numerous showers and scattered Thunderstorms across the local waters through at least Wednesday, when the front is forecast to gradually advance southeastward through the area. Outside of locally gusty winds and heavy downpours accompanying showers and storms, marine conditions should remain generally benign until around Thursday morning, when moderate northerly winds will result in cautionary conditions for small craft operators. Cautionary conditions are forecast once again late in the week into the upcoming weekend as easterly winds strengthen across the area.
Gulf stream hazards..Showers and Thunderstorms with gusty winds and locally higher seas will be possible through Wednesday night.

Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Miami FL 348 AM EDT Wed Apr 21 2021

SHORT TERM. (Today through Thursday)

* A stalled frontal boundary will gradually advance southeastward across South Florida today, supporting numerous showers and scattered thunderstorms across the area.

* Repeated rounds of heavy showers and storms could result in localized flooding today, especially across the east coast metros. In addition, locally gusty winds may accompany any stronger convective updrafts.

* The frontal boundary should slowly depart the area by Thursday morning, with generally drier conditions in its wake.

A WSW-ENE oriented frontal boundary continues to linger across the northern portions of South Florida, with southwesterly winds and rich moisture (lower/middle 70s dewpoints) remaining in place across South Florida. As a mid-level jet steak departs the base of a large- scale east-central CONUS trough, a poleward low-level mass flux will result in additional southwesterly moisture transport into South Florida during the overnight hours, with forecast PWs climbing into the 1.8 to 2.0 inch range by late this morning. The rich moisture and low-level confluence accompanying the frontal boundary will foster the development of numerous showers and scattered thunderstorms today -- generally spreading east-southeastward across southern Florida with the slowly advancing surface boundary/trough.

Considering the abundant deep-layer moisture and mid-level steering flow paralleling the surface frontal zone, training of heavy rain showers and thunderstorms could result in localized flooding, especially across the east coast metros of South Florida. In addition, enhanced westerly deep-layer bulk shear could allow for the development of a few loosely organized convective clusters, capable of producing locally heavy rainfall and gusty outflow winds.

Mosaic radar imagery currently shows bands of elevated showers developing across southern Florida, and this activity will likely expand in coverage and perhaps intensity from the late morning into the afternoon hours. Dense cloud coverage associated with the lingering frontal boundary and upstream convection across the southeastern Gulf of Mexico will likely limit daytime heating and associated boundary layer recovery today -- generally limiting the intensity of convective updrafts that develop this afternoon. That being said, any pockets of clearing and associated boundary layer destabilization will be worth monitoring for locally strong updraft development.

By Thursday morning, the aforementioned surface boundary will be departing the region, and rain/thunderstorm chances will generally decrease across the area. That being said, lingering low-level moisture along the tail end of the frontal boundary combined with diurnal heating will allow for afternoon thunderstorm development, mainly across the southern portions of South Florida.

LONG TERM. Thursday night through Tuesday night .

The boundary mentioned in the short term stalls just to the south, as high pressure builds to the east. This helps keep the boundary to the south for the beginning of the weekend, but also allows for moisture to be advected into the area, allowing for at least a slight chance of showers when combined with diurnal heating. By Saturday afternoon, a weak 500mb shortwave also moves across the area. This may bring enough dynamics for a few thunderstorms, mainly along the east coast and in the Lake region, where the sea/Lake breezes could also aid in convective development.

By Sunday, a low pressure system moves across the Ohio River Valley and into the mid-Atlantic states. This system will have an associated cold front, which looks to do the old Okeechobee teaser thing and stall around the Lake. This will allow for somewhat better chances of showers and thunderstorms for much of the area on Sunday. Beyond Sunday, the models diverge with the disposition of the front. The ECMWF has it slowly moving through, and clearing South Florida by Monday afternoon. The GFS is less progressive and has the front hanging around for the beginning of the week. So, while the current forecast does not mention any precipitation for Monday at this time, would not be surprised if it gets added with future packages.

AVIATION(06Z TAFS). A WSW-ENE oriented surface boundary will remain draped across the northern portions of S FL overnight prior to advancing southeastward across the area during the day on Wednesday. The diffuse nature of the boundary introduces large uncertainty in both the timing and coverage of showers and storms throughout the period, so generally handling this with PROB30 and VC groups. Sub- VFR conditions will accompany the stronger showers and storms, and AMDs may become necessary as forecast confidence increases.

MARINE. A stalled frontal boundary will be the focus for numerous showers and scattered thunderstorms across the local waters through at least Wednesday, when the front is forecast to gradually advance southeastward through the area. Outside of locally gusty winds and heavy downpours accompanying showers and storms, marine conditions should remain generally benign until around Thursday morning, when moderate northerly winds will result in cautionary conditions for small craft operators. Cautionary conditions are forecast once again late in the week into the upcoming weekend as easterly winds strengthen across the area.

BEACHES. Numerous showers and scattered thunderstorms will affect the South Florida beaches today, with heavy downpours and locally gusty winds possible. The rip current risk will increase across the Atlantic beaches late this week into the upcoming weekend as easterly/onshore winds strengthen.
