Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Miami FL 324 PM EDT Thu Oct 1 2020

Short Term.

Rest of Today .

A stalled frontal boundary across the region will continue to support an unsettled weather pattern across South Florida today. The quasi-stationary frontal boundary and associated weak confluent flow is maintaining deep tropical moisture across the area (PW of 2.14 in) and light easterly to northeasterly boundary layer flow. The MFL 12Z RAOB shows a tall/somewhat skinny CAPE profile with relatively light SSW steering flow, which will support efficient precipitation production and slow moving/backbuilding storms. GOES-16 visible imagery shows relatively clear skies across the eastern portions of South Florida, which will promote sufficient boundary-layer destabilization/east coast sea breeze development. In addition, a slight enhancement to the bulk shear is evident across the northern portions of South Florida, which could support a few loosely- organized convective clusters capable of producing heavy rainfall and gusty winds.

Showers and storms should begin to develop along an Atlantic sea breeze and any other density gradients that arise this afternoon, especially where localized convergence becomes maximized. The primary concern for the remainder of the day will be locally heavy rainfall and flooding along the east coast metros, where WPC is maintaining a slight risk of excessive rainfall for today. A particular area to watch today will be coastal/metro Palm Beach County, where heavy rainfall saturated the soils last night and enhanced runoff could materialize with additional rainfall. While locally heavy rainfall and flooding remain a concern for this afternoon, there is some uncertainty in the magnitude of the threat

Overnight and Tomorrow .

Another coastal trough may try to develop overnight tonight and early tomorrow morning. This will allow for heavy showers and thunderstorms to be possible along the coast or just offshore. If these storms develop along the coast, heavy rainfall with flooding will continue to be an elevated concern.

Tomorrow, the overall pattern really does not change with the frontal zone lingering across the area with deep tropical moisture across the southern Florida peninsula. A bit of an enhanced diurnal convective cycle with showers and thunderstorms with high rainfall rates and slow storm motion. The overall coverage tomorrow may be shifted a little further south but the entire east coast is in play for potential flooding. The main concern the to end the week will continue to be flooding potential with heavy rainfall across the east coast. This is being highlighted by WPC with a slight risk of excessive rainfall as well as a Flood Watch over the east coast through the weekend.

Long Term.

Saturday through Sunday .

Wet and unsettled weather will continue through the extended period as broad mid-upper level troughing encompasses the eastern half of the CONUS. At the surface, the quasi-stationary boundary draped across the region will ever-so-slowly inch northward. For the first half of the weekend, northeasterly flow in the lower levels will enhance convergence along the eastern metro areas before veering south/southeasterly by the end of the weekend, reinforcing tropical moisture through the atmospheric column. Model derived PWATs continue to depict a 2.1 to 2.4 inches range over the region, translating to a flood risk. Given the likelihood of sufficient antecedent accumulations, a reasonable worst-case scenario with any localized training/back-building of storms could be an increased flash flooding risk. However, this will be highly dependent of the mesoscale setup, which is difficult to parse out this far out in time. Current experimental PQPF indicates rainfall totals of 1 to 3 inches are possible across South Florida, with higher accumulations of 4 to 6 inches highlighted over the eastern metro areas. Thus, the Flood Watch remains in effect through at least Sunday Evening for Coastal and Metro Palm Beach, Broward, and Miami-Dade.

Monday through Wednesday .

Upper level flow then gradually becomes zonal through the middle of next week as a shortwave embedded within the broader, more robust trough, traverses eastward, allowing the ridge to sneak southward and become elongated over the FL peninsula. However, the aforementioned frontal zone should remain stalled in our vicinity. Furthermore, additional moisture could be lofted into the area from a potential low pressure system crossing through the northwestern Caribbean Sea. Regardless of the lows evolution and proximity to South Florida, the overall synoptic pattern will remain favorable for elevated shower and storm chances across South Florida, along with the potential for heavy rain and flooding sticking around. Albeit, greatest coverage of convection next week should be focused over the interior and west coast of South Florida with flow returning out of the east. Make sure to monitor the latest forecast as things could change depending on how the rain event unfolds over the weekend.

Marine. A frontal boundary across the region will continue to bring northerly or northeasterly winds through the remainder of the workweek before a more easterly transition takes shape this weekend. Outside of the potential for scattered showers and storms, wind and seas should remain somewhat favorable through Friday.

Beach Forecast. Astronomically higher than normal tides may result in isolated minor coastal flooding along coastal Miami- Dade, Broward, Palm Beach counties.
