Area Forecast Discussion . UPDATED National Weather Service Miami FL 807 AM EDT Thu Apr 9 2020

. 12z Aviation Update .

Aviation. A few low stratus will mix out in about an hour or so for a few Atlantic terminals. Westerly flow will prevail except maybe right along the immediate Atlantic coast where a sea breeze will reside. Think terminals will remain west of this feature. Clouds will be on the increase overnight and early Friday. MVFR conditions may be realized toward the end of the cycle, especially for the northern most terminals.

Prev Discussion. /issued 346 AM EDT Thu Apr 9 2020/

Short Term (Through Friday) .

Very warm and dry conditions are expected again today with westerly winds increasing this afternoon as the gradient tightens. High temperatures today are forecast to again range from the mid 80s along the Gulf Coast to the low 90s across the interior and East Coast. Warm conditions will continue into Friday with moisture increasing as a cold front approaches from the north. This will lead to an increase in showers and perhaps a few thunderstorms across the area Friday afternoon, with the greatest chances across the Lake Region and Palm Beaches. Looking at the forecast soundings, a few thunderstorms will be possible with decent CAPE and mid level lapse rates. Given the inverted V shape of the sounding and pretty decent forecast DCAPE, if storms develop, a few could be on the stronger side with gusty winds likely the primary threat. While the East Coast sea breeze may develop, it will likely remain pinned against the coast due to the breezy deep westerly flow across the region. High temperatures on Friday will still be well above-average, but a touch lower than today due to the increase in cloud cover and rain chances.

Long Term .

Friday Night and Saturday .

Troughing aloft will progress through the eastern States early in the period with a trailing cold front likely to be along the far southern Florida Peninsula early in the period. Given thermodynamic support and sufficient shear there is a brief window for a strong storm or two producing gusty winds and heavy rainfall on Friday evening, but this window should rapidly close by Friday night as the front and its associated forcing for ascent departs for the Florida Straits. By Saturday we'll see a brief respite from the hot temperatures along the east coast metro areas following the frontal passage with northeast to easterly surface winds dropping readings in these areas down into the lower to mid 80s. The Gulf Coast and western interior will remain on the warm side however, with highs in the upper 80s to around 90. Lows Saturday night will be mostly in the 70s, except for some upper 60s over inland southwest Florida.

Sunday and Monday .

A shortwave trough will gradually lose amplitude while progressing from the southern Great Plains before being absorbed into large- scale troughing over the northeast CONUS. An associated surface cyclone will rapidly deepen from the Ohio Valley through the upper Great Lakes, with an attendant cold front reaching the Florida Panhandle vicinity during this time. Downstream ridging in the mid levels will remain prominent from the southern Gulf of Mexico through the northern Caribbean Sea and Bahamas, with surface high pressure departing for the open Atlantic in advance of the approaching trough. This will result in veering low-level winds from southeasterly on Sunday to more south-southwesterly by Monday, along with low end shower chances. In fact PoPs were adjusted downward from our previous forecasts as the deterministic model guidance has consistently trended slower in bringing the surface trough/cold front closer to our area. One other adjustment during this time was to bring high temperatures along the east coast down by a few degrees on Sunday owing to the onshore wind component. That said, it will still be quite warm through this period, with highs on Sunday ranging from the upper 80s (east coast) to the mid 90s (inland southwest Florida). Highs on Monday will generally be in the 90s, except along the immediate coastline. Lows both nights will generally be in the 70s.

Tuesday through Thursday .

The mid-level ridge will zonally elongate to our south in response to upstream troughing progressing through the Southeast CONUS. This will provide the necessary push to the quasi- stationary frontal zone initially to our north, allowing it to push towards or into our area by mid week. There is some uncertainty with this timing, as the global models have tended to slow the forward progress of this front. That said, shower chances should increase for mid to late week, with a few thunderstorms possible as well. Expect the timing for this to be better refined with future forecast updates. Above average temperatures appear to be the rule through mid week, with some slight cooling possible by late week deepening upon the ultimate position of the front and its associated cloud cover and precipitation.

Marine .

Small craft should exercise caution across the Atlantic waters with breezy westerly winds today. Winds will remain breezy at times for the next several days as a cold front approaches the area on Friday. A few thunderstorms will be possible across the Lake and Atlantic waters on Friday afternoon with this front. Otherwise, generally benign marine conditions are expected.

Aviation .

VFR conditions are expected through the period with gusty westerly winds during the day today.

Beach Forecast .

A moderate risk for rip currents is forecast for the Palm Beaches today due to lingering swell and for Collier County the next couple of days due to breezy onshore winds.

Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data.

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