Synopsis.. A surface trough and associated moisture rounding the clockwise flow around atlantic high pressure will allow for showers and storms tonight into Wednesday. As the trough exits, the easterly flow around the ridge of high pressure will persist through the week. NEar the end of the week, another trough will move into the region with the potential for increased shower and storm chances.
Gulf stream hazards..Lightning, gusty winds, locally higher seas, and waterspouts are possible with showers and Thunderstorms over the gulf stream. Easterly wind surges will be capable of bringing brief bouts of cautionary conditions to the atlantic waters tonight.

Aviation
High pressure to the northeast is set to maintain a generally east
to southeast flow across south florida today. This should allow
convection to develop over the east coast by mid day, before
moving off to the interior and gulf coast for the afternoon
hours. Any +tsra may bring brief ifr conditions to localized
areas.

Prev discussion issued 808 pm edt Tue aug 20 2019
update...

a pair of convective concerns this evening as sea breeze enhanced
convection continues along the gulf coast while small cells are
developing over different portions of the atlantic waters, lake
okeechobee, and the eastern two-thirds of the southern peninsula
of florida. The influence of the surface trough is certainly
evident with the uptick in non-diurnally induced convection
traveling along the southeasterly flow this evening. The
convection will eventually focus over the coastal waters with the
potential to also affect the east coast metro overnight. An
updated set of zones will soon be transmitted to show the slight
increase in pops for the evening and overnight, mainly over the
waters. Otherwise the forecast is on track with no additional
updates anticipated this evening. Have a wonderful Tuesday night!

discussion...

rest of today into tonight: a surface trough that has brought
increased shower and thunderstorm activity to the peninsula and
coastal waters over the past 12 hours will continue to progress
out of the region tonight into tomorrow as the atlantic ridge
builds back into S fl. Persistent easterly to southeasterly winds
will once again allow for the development of showers and
thunderstorms over the atlantic and gulf waters overnight tonight,
with the greatest coverage expected over the interior and gulf
coast.

Wednesday and Thursday: as the surface trough exits the region,
atlantic high pressure will once again become the dominant feature
through the remainder of the week. This typical summertime
pattern will favor diurnally driven convection each day along the
sea breezes with the greatest coverage expected over the interior
and gulf coast.

Friday into the weekend: a tropical wave that is currently
located near the bahamas is expected to progress westward into the
region late this week into the weekend, providing a moisture
surge that will increase overall rain and thunderstorm chances. In
addition, winds will become more light and southerly this
weekend, allowing for both atlantic and gulf sea breeze
development.

Early next week: winds will become more light and southerly,
allowing for diurnally driven afternoon convection along the
atlantic and gulf sea breezes. Storm coverage will be focused in
the interior and west coast.

Marine...

easterly to southeasterly flow will prevail through the week with
nocturnal easterly wind surges, mainly over the atlantic, that could
bring conditions near scec. Otherwise, winds and waves will
generally remain below headline criteria. Showers and thunderstorms
will be possible each day and night over the local south florida
waters. Gusty and erratic winds with locally higher seas are
possible in and around any convection.

Beach forecast...

the persistent easterly to southeasterly flow through a good portion
of the week will allow an elevated risk of rip currents to emerge
along the atlantic beaches of south florida. The threat will be
moderate by Wednesday and could remain elevated into the weekend.

Hydrology...

with a few periods of heavy rainfall possible over the coming days
as troughs and associated moisture push across the region, the
potential for ground saturation leading to increased risks of
flooding remains. The west coast metro is an area that will require
some monitoring as the easterlies will restrict the progress of the
gulf sea breeze which will allow a convective focus to hang around
the naples area until the pattern shifts.

Fisheating creek at palmdale has a current stage of 6.38, which
places it on action stage below the flood stage of 7 feet. Ensemble
guidance points to a slightly drier period ahead in the basin over
portions of glades and highlands counties that feed into the creek.

This lends higher confidence to the forecast which calls for the
creek to crest at 6.5 feet with rains later in the week. We will
still need to monitor in case excessive rainfall above forecast
occurs in the basin, leading to rapid rises in the creek above flood
stage.
