Area Forecast Discussion . UPDATED National Weather Service Miami FL 713 AM EDT Sat Aug 8 2020

. 12z Aviation Update .

Aviation. Like the last few days, convection will begin to develop around midday, generally west of the Atlantic terminals with the better storm chances residing along the Gulf (APF). Otherwise, mostly VFR conditions with light to moderate northeast or easterly flow expected. Light and variable (and dry) conditions expected overnight before much of the same on Sunday.

Prev Discussion. /issued 233 AM EDT Sat Aug 8 2020/

Discussion .

Short Term (Today through Sunday night):

A rather persistent pattern continues to be depicted by model solutions for the short term. A quasi-zonal flow aloft will be in place, while mid level high pressure and sfc ridging remain over the northern half of the Florida peninsula. This synoptic scenario will keep pressure gradients fairly relaxed across the area, with mainly light to moderate easterly flow in place. However, sounding data from MFL and model vertical analyses still show PWATs around 1.8 inches, daytime temps reaching the low-mid 90s, along with returning sea breeze boundaries in the afternoon hours. These three key players should again combine for another round of showers and storms each day.

Best chances for deep convection reside again over interior and west coast areas where the best pool of moisture and B-L instability should reside. But can not rule out a few showers/storms over the Atlantic metro as sea breezes develop, with periods of localized flooding rains and gusty winds. Models also continue to depict a few transient small perturbations moving aloft that may disrupt the zonal flow at times, possibly adding an extra push to any developing strong updraft during the next couple of days.

Expect temperatures to continue to hit the high 80s near the coast, and the mid 90s inland and west coast. And as in previous nights, there will be periods of nighttime mugginess when winds relax.

Long term (Monday - Friday):

Models show a subtropical ridge stretching across the western Atlantic and into the Gulf of Mexico, keeping a persistent light to moderate ESE flow in place. Daytime convection will again be driven by the development and inland migration of sea breeze boundaries. This will continue to favor thunderstorm chances over interior and west coast areas during the afternoon hours. Main thunderstorm hazards will be frequent lightning, heavy rainfall, and the possibility of isolated strong wind gusts.

Models suggest having a little drier air filtering into the area by mid week, potentially cutting back on late week thunderstorm activity. But for now will continue to follow blend guidance for POPs and wait for upcoming model data before deviating from ongoing forecast philosophy.

Temperatures should be near or slightly above normals with afternoon highs in the upper 80s to lower 90s.

Marine . Dominant high pressure across the region will keep generally benign boating conditions in place with light to moderate easterly flow through the period. Only exception will be in the vicinity of thunderstorms, which will bring brief periods of rough seas and gusty winds.

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.

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