Short Term.

Rest Of This Afternoon (Mesoscale Update) .

Visible satellite loops indicate more widespread boundary-layer cumulus development across South Florida today compared to yesterday -- indicative of greater tropospheric moisture content responding to mass fluxes along the periphery of a northern Gulf cyclonic-flow perturbation. As a result, convective coverage today should be greater today than yesterday -- more scattered to numerous today. Precipitable water has increased by around 0.2 inch during the past day, which will increase the conditional potential for precipitation loading to strengthen downdrafts, while midlevel lapse rates remain at a similar 6.0-6.5 C/km. Midlevel winds today are west-southwesterly around 15 kt -- about 5 kt weaker than those yesterday. Given the marginal decrease in already modest vertical shear, though still locally enhanced along and east of the east-coast sea-breeze boundary that has edged inland, the boosted tropospheric moisture should still maintain a microburst potential with convection maturing and advancing toward the east coast in through 7PM. Lateral expansion of related strong-wind potential could accompany cold-pool amalgamation toward the east-coast vicinity after around 4PM. An isolated damaging wind gust could occur as a reasonable worst- case scenario, especially where low-level lapse rates steepen the most from metro/coastal Broward into metro/coastal Palm Beach County. Also, isolated hail -- mostly small -- could accompany incipient updraft stages. Though, sufficiently cool midlevel profiles could support an isolated risk for quarter-size hail. Frequent lightning and torrential downpours are expected, and backbuilding convection could yield a localized-flooding risk.

Overnight and Monday .

Overnight tonight temperatures will drop into the mid 70s over the interior with upper 70s along the gulf coast and near to low 80s over the east coast metro. Showers and thunderstorms will be possible over the Gulf and Atlantic waters overnight.

Another day of unsettled weather is expected with the start of the week. High pressure with a light and variable wind flow across the region. A low pressure system along a stalled frontal boundary is expected to move in the Northern Gulf of Mexico. Meanwhile across South Florida abundant moisture remains with PWATs around 1.9-2 inches. Sea breezes will develop in the afternoon with this being the main forcing mechanism to initiate convection, Additional convection will develop along sea breeze and outflow boundary interactions. Main impacts will continue to be the same across South Florida with frequent lightning, gusty winds, heavy rainfall and small hail possible.

Afternoon temperatures will continue to be above normal in the lower to mid 90s across the area. Heat indices will continue to soar into the triple digits up to 106.

Long Term.

Monday Night through Tuesday .

Broad mid/upper troughing will prevail across the southeast States, with zonally elongated ridging extending from the western Atlantic through the Bahamas and southeast Gulf of Mexico. A surface front attendant to the upper wave will remain draped across the coastal Gulf Coast states, with surface cyclogenesis potentially occurring somewhere along the frontal zone well to our north. Our location along the western periphery of the upper ridge will maintain weak southwesterly flow aloft with light south/southeasterly flow through the lower troposphere. The reservoir of relatively deep moisture remains in place, with model forecast precipitable water values remaining at or above 2 inches through the period. While the mid levels shouldn't be particularly cool given the ridging in place, low-level diabatic heating and the aforementioned moisture should result in plentiful thermodynamic instability and convective initiation along the inland advancing sea breeze boundaries. Given the rather light flow pattern thunderstorm development may spread back towards coastal areas later in the afternoon along colliding outflow boundaries. It appears that thunderstorm coverage may be a bit more widespread on Tuesday given slightly deeper moisture and less influence from the low level ridge. That said afternoon PoPs of 40-50 percent are still anticipated for inland areas each afternoon. A few stronger storms are possible, and a localized/urban flooding risk may develop given slow storm motions. Very little change in temperatures is expected during this period with above average readings expected. Highs away from the coasts will be well into the 90s, with lows in the 70s inland and lower 80s along the coasts. Maximum heat indices of 100 to 108 degrees are likely, so caution should be exercised by those working outdoors.

Wednesday through Sunday .

The upper trough will gradually lift from the Southeast CONUS into the mid Atlantic States as ridging at the surface and aloft briefly expands across the southern Gulf of Mexico and northwest Caribbean Sea. A low pressure system, potentially with subtropical characteristics, should be in the vicinity of the coastal Carolinas early in the period, before pulling away to the north by late week. However, residual troughing may extend southwest of this feature for a time. Given deep moisture, light tropospheric flow, and the usual sea breeze circulation patterns daily shower/thunderstorm development is anticipated. However, there is some murkiness with convective trends and coverage by late week depending upon the evolution of the large scale pattern. It's possible that a more widespread heavy rain/localized flooding risk could develop during this time. Keep up with forecast changes. Otherwise the warm pattern looks to continue with above average temperatures expected.

Marine.

Generally benign boating conditions continue through the forecast period for all South Florida coastal waters. Only exception will be with any thunderstorm that may form, which will bring brief localized periods of rough seas and gusty winds.

Aviation (18z TAFs).

Light winds this morning with some lingering smoke/haze from fireworks last night trapped in the inversion layer causing some limited vis. Light winds will continue until both seabreezes begin to pick up around 16Z. VCTS for all terminals this afternoon. Sub-VFR conditions for cigs/vis with showers and storms that move over the terminals, with best chances after 18Z for east coast. Light winds once again overnight tonight.
