Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Miami FL 656 PM EST Tue Jan 28 2020

Aviation.

Prevailing VFR is anticipated for the eastern terminals, but areas of low clouds and/or fog are possible, mainly over interior portions of South Florida. Chances for these to impact the TAF sites appears low, but will monitor for possible changes. Light and variable winds tonight should trend SE by early tomorrow afternoon, possibly shifting to the SSW by late afternoon or evening. Shower chances increase by tomorrow night.

Prev Discussion. /issued 357 PM EST Tue Jan 28 2020/

DISCUSSION .

Short term (Tonight-Wednesday night): High pressure over the Southeastern United States will move quickly into the Atlantic waters tonight. This will allow for low pressure over Texas to move east southeast and through Southeastern United States on Wednesday. An associated cold front with the low will also be moving east southeast through the Gulf of Mexico. This weather pattern will allow for the wind flow over South Florida to go from a northerly flow this afternoon to a south/southwest direction on Wednesday. However, the atmosphere will remain mostly dry through Tuesday before low level moisture increases over the region on Wednesday. Therefore, the weather will remain dry through Tuesday night before increasing PoPs from west to east on Wednesday.

The low pressure over the Southeastern United States will continue to move eastward into the Western Atlantic waters Wednesday night allowing for the cold front over the Gulf of Mexico to move southeast through South Florida and stall over the Florida Keys or the Florida Straits. This will end PoPs from west to east across the region.

A few of the showers Wednesday night could produce some gusty winds over South Florida especially over the western areas, as a mid to upper level jet of 35 to 50 knots will be moving northeast from the Southern Gulf of Mexico across the Lake Okeechobee region and into the Western Atlantic waters. Therefore, gusty wind wording will be added in the extended HWO product for the showers for Wednesday night.

Long Term (Thursday-Monday night):

A few showers are possible through the early morning hours on Thursday with some possible overrunning from a stationary decaying front lingering over the Florida Keys. But drier conditions will prevail for the rest of the day as high pressure establishes across the area.

Meanwhile, long range model solutions depict a deepening mid level trough across the eastern CONUS, with a cyclogenesis sfc reflection over the Gulf waters by late Thursday and into Friday. As the low intensifies, it will help the aforementioned stalled front in retrograding back across SoFlo, which will bring weak isentropic lifting by Friday afternoon. This synoptic scenario will result in increased shower activity across much of the area for the start of the weekend.

Models show the still deepening low crossing the extreme SE CONUS and into South Carolina Friday night into early Saturday. Both the low and a supporting upper level jet remain well to the north of the area, along with the best dynamic support for deep convection. But there should be enough low level instability for justifying keeping slight chance of storms, especially Friday evening and through the overnight hours. In terms of rain, model PWATS are gradually increasing with latest runs from GFS getting close to 2 inches. So, forecast will keep mentioning the potential for heavy showers and localized flooding in the Friday night through Saturday time frame.

The front should be clearing SoFlo by Saturday evening with high pressure building behind it. The wind will veer to the northwest by Sunday, with 10 to 15 kts at the surface Sunday morning, subsiding to below 10 kts late Sunday. There is also some cold air advection in the wake of the FROPA, with highs remaining in the upper 60s to low 70s Sunday afternoon. Sunday night into Monday morning will experience colder temperatures with lows in the mid 40s near the lake to around 60 along the Atlantic beaches. High pressure will prevail with benign weather in place for early next week.

Marine . The winds will swing from a northerly direction this afternoon to a southerly direction on Wednesday with speeds of 10 knots or less. The northeast swells will continue to slowly decrease this afternoon and should be gone by Wednesday over the Atlantic waters. This will keep the seas at 2 feet or less in the Atlantic and Gulf waters through Wednesday, except around 3 feet in the Atlantic waters of Palm Beach County.

Beach Forecast . The northeast swells from this afternoon will help to keep the High Risk of Rip Currents ongoing through this evening for the northern beaches of Palm Beach County. The treat of rip currents will then decrease late tonight into Wednesday along the beaches of Palm Beach County, and remain low along rest of the beaches of South Florida.

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