Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Miami FL 1020 AM EDT Tue Mar 31 2020

Update. Previous forecast appears to be on track. Warm and dry conditions are expected to continue today with southwest flow heating up the eastern portion of the area more today than the past several days. A cold front will push through the area late tonight through Wednesday morning, bringing slightly cooler conditions to the area.

Prev Discussion. /issued 738 AM EDT Tue Mar 31 2020/

Aviation . VFR continues through 01/00Z, then an approaching front may bring MVFR cigs with showers, spreading from west to east starting late tonight. There is a slight of chance for a few thunderstorms after 01/04Z, but confidence remains low enough to keep mention of thunder out of the TAFS for now. Light and variable winds will shift to the SW around 15Z. A few wind gusts may top 25kts this afternoon.

Prev Discussion . /issued 256 AM EDT Tue Mar 31 2020/

Short Term (Today-Wednesday night) .

Consensus in model solutions continues to improve with overall guidance showing a deepening trough/low complex over the SE CONUS sending a frontal boundary trekking south through the FL Peninsula and reaching SoFlo early Wednesday. In response, the high pressure aloft will erode and sink SW while the sfc ridge from the past week or so will finally be pushed eastward and into the west Atlantic. Winds will also keep veering to a more W/NW flow through Wednesday with the FROPA, bringing increasing low level moisture and enhanced BL instability across the area. Therefore, expect an increase in rain chances this evening and into Wednesday morning, but with highest POPS still remaining in the 30-40 percent so far.

Models clearly keep the best dynamic support well to the north of SoFlo, thus, widespread/significant coverage of thunderstorms is not anticipated at this time. But a few storms are certainly possible, especially during the late morning hours on Wednesday.

Confidence in timing of the FROPA has improved enough to feel comfortable with decreasing POPS to single digits for Wednesday evening as model solutions show the front already pushing into the Florida Keys. Drier, cooler and more stable air begins advecting into SoFlo in the wake of the FROPA with overnight lows Wed into Thu dropping into the mid 50s across interior sections to the upper 60s east coast metro areas.

Long Term .

Thursday through Monday .

Drier and slightly cooler air remains across South Florida for much of the extended period as high pressure nestles into the eastern CONUS. Aloft, the pattern will be zonal through the remainder of the week with a weak mid-upper level ridge developing over the southeast early this weekend. This should help keep the region dry for the first half of the weekend before a weak impulse approaches the area from the Gulf of Mexico. While, models have backed off on intensity of this mid-level perturbation from previous runs, measly PoP values remain in the forecast for the latter half of the weekend and early next week.

Daytime temperatures through the period will generally range from around 80 over the east coast metro areas to the upper 80s across the interior sections each afternoon. Overnight, temperatures will start the period in the upper 50s west of the lake and 60s elsewhere before gradually increasing to lower 70s along the east coast and 60s elsewhere by the end of the weekend and into early next week.

Marine .

A high pressure ridge will shift south Today as a cold front moves through the waters tonight into Wednesday, veering winds to the W/NW. Conditions will deteriorate but now enough to reach advisory criteria. But the evolution of the weather scenario will be closely monitored in case winds and/or seas become hazardous for boaters. But no headlines are expected at this time.

Fire Weather .

Elevated fire weather conditions are forecast across much of South Florida today. Unseasonably warm temperatures, low relative humidity, breezy SW transport winds, and dry fuels will lead to an elevated threat for fire weather over the interior and Lake Region this afternoon.

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.
