Discussion.

Short Term (Tonight and Saturday):

A mature cyclone located off the New England coast will move into the open Atlantic, as mid-level ridging remains prominent across the southern Gulf of Mexico and Greater Antilles. Weak surface ridging will prevail from the lower Great Lakes through Florida. Despite some weak passing perturbations aloft, it appears that sea breeze circulation patterns will be the primary short-term drivers for wind direction and cloud cover. Light and variable winds tonight should again become east to southeast on Saturday, with the exception of along the Gulf coast where they'll become southwesterly by afternoon as the Gulf breeze progresses inland. The high resolution guidance suggests a slight uptick in low-level moisture given the prevailing easterly fetch and even want to spit out a few afternoon showers along the inland advancing Atlantic sea breeze. Added an area of slight chance PoPs to account for this given the consistency of the signal. That said, dry conditions should be the rule for most. Given the dry airmass, cool temperatures are expected tonight over the interior (upper 50s to around 60), with 60s along the Gulf coast and lower 70s for the Atlantic beaches. Highs on Saturday should climb well into the 80s across western portions of the area, with lower 80s along the east coast given the somewhat cool onshore flow.

Long Term . (Saturday night through Thursday):

Models have backed down considerably for the potential front on the Sat night/Sunday timeframe. There is fair inter and intra model consensus about having instead weak high pressure developing over the SE CONUS, which will help in blocking the progression of the front and its parent low, keeping most of the associated weather over the central states. There is still a shortwave signal on models, migrating across the Gulf and the northern portions of the peninsula, but with only slight chance of showers for SoFlo on Sunday. Afterwards, the aforementioned high keeps sliding south/southeast, with the center reaching the Bahamas by mid week. This will bring another round of persisting subsidence, along with veering winds from easterlies on Sunday to SW/W by Wednesday as the ridge positions itself to the SE of Florida.

With the dominant high pressure across the area, expect warming temperatures each day with afternoon highs remaining above normals, mainly mid-upper 80s near the coast and low-mid 90s inland.

Long range models continue to struggle on how to resolve a potential trough/low complex that may develop over the central CONUS by the end of next week. For now, it seems the best dynamic and overall impacts remain well to the north of SoFlo, with the sfc boundary stalling near the Fl Panhandle.

Marine.

Large N-NE swells are anticipated over the Atlantic waters through this evening before subsiding. These swells will be more pronounced off the the Palm Beach County coast, with smaller but still significant swell expected for areas farther south as well. Hazardous marine conditions are expected for small craft operators for the Atlantic waters off Palm Beach County where a Small Craft Advisory is in effect. Cautionary conditions will exist elsewhere across the Atlantic waters through tonight.

Aviation.

VFR. E-ESE winds around 7-10 kt this afternoon at the eastern terminals. At APF expect a more SWly direction as the Gulf Breeze pushes inland this afternoon. A similar weather pattern should prevail for tonight into Saturday.

Beach Forecast.

The arriving swell will bring an enhanced rip current risk for the Atlantic beaches, with a high risk for the Palm Beaches. This hazard will likely continue for this weekend and beyond with onshore winds continuing. Rough surf conditions are expected along the Palm Beach through this evening before subsiding tonight.

Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
