Synopsis.. Prevailing east southeast winds will be in place for most of the upcoming week with the atlantic ridge axis to the north of the region. The main boating concern will be showers and storms across the local waters each day. A few waterspouts are also possible over the atlantic waters today. Prevailing flow will lead to more storms pushing off the gulf coast in the afternoons and evenings. Winds and waves could be locally higher in an around any shower or Thunderstorm.
Gulf stream hazards..Lightning, gusty winds, locally higher seas, and waterspouts are possible with Thunderstorms over the gulf stream. The approximate location of the west wall of the gulf stream as of aug 17, 2019 at 1200 utc... 5 nautical miles southeast of fowey rocks. 9 nautical miles east northeast of port everglades. 11 nautical miles east northeast of lake worth. 8 nautical miles east northeast of jupiter inlet.

Update
Low-level easterly flow prevails this morning as we remain between
the atlantic ridge axis to our north and inverted troughing over
the eastern bahamas. Showers and a few thunderstorms will continue
pushing inland from the atlantic waters this morning with the
dominant atlantic breeze concentrating afternoon convection over
inland south florida and the gulf coast region. Mesoscale and
sounding analyses reveal the possibility for a few strong
thunderstorms this afternoon and evening given the slight uptick
in mid upper flow juxtaposed with slightly drier air aloft and
good surface heating low-level lapse rates. Although conditions
seem mostly supportive of special weather advisory criteria
type storms, a marginally severe wind gust or two is possible in
any taller thunderstorm cores provided sufficient precipitation
loading. Lightning and localized heavy rainfall minor flooding
remain concerns as well, particularly towards the gulf coast.

Updated pops and sky cover to reflect current trends and the
latest output from the convection allowing mesoscale models.

Otherwise the forecast is in great shape and no major changes are
anticipated through the early afternoon hours.

update...

atlantic showers pushing inland may briefly impact the eastern
terminals through late morning. While a brief visibility reduction
is possible, prevailingVFR is anticipated. Afternoon shower storm
coverage should favor interior and gulf coast areas, so left vcts
out of the eastern TAF sites for now. Prevailing easterly winds
will continue, becoming more light and variable tonight for inland
areas.

discussion...

today: the leading edge of the next moisture push associated with a
low level trough moving through the bahamas is currently moving
through the central bahamas early this morning. It's already kicking
off a few more showers and storms over the local atlantic than we
saw this time yesterday, with a gradual uptick expected as we head
towards daybreak.

Today will be a transitional day as the western atlantic ridge axis
continues to lift northwards and we remain under the diminishing
influence of the saharan air layer that was in place on Sunday.

Coverage today looks higher than yesterday due to the influence of
the approaching trough, though it will play more of a factor on
Tuesday, as well as cooling temperatures aloft.

The atlantic showers and storms will move into the coast through the
morning hours, with the better coverage shifting west as the east
coast seabreeze moves inland. As with yesterday, convection will
pile up along the gulf coast and SW florida interior.

Tonight and Tuesday: the perturbations of the western atlantic ridge
will be the largest influence on the weather across south florida
through the upcoming week. The axis of the ridge will generally be
to our north, putting us in prevailing deep, though somewhat light,
east southeast flow.

A few factors will bring a trend of higher coverage of showers
and storms as we go into midweek.

First, the saharan dust that was in place will move fully westward,
allowing a re-moistening of the local airmass with pwats creeping
back towards 2". This moistening will be brought upon by the second
factor, the combination of a westward moving tropical wave passing
to our south Monday night and the low level trough on it's northern
end moving into the fl peninsula by Tuesday morning. These features
have a midlevel reflection that will erode the western end of the
ridge, bringing in a little cooler temperatures aloft.

The highest rain chances of the week will likely be Tuesday as the
influence of the above factors are maximized. We will still see a
diurnal maximum of activity in the afternoon with daytime heating
and diffuse east coast seabreeze. While the highest coverage will be
across inland SW florida and the gulf coast, locally heavy rain may
be a concern for all locations.

Wednesday through Friday: the latter half of the week looks to favor
a return to more seasonable scattered showers and storms once the
wave and trough round the ridge and pass to our west. The ridge will
weaken as we end the week, but still exert enough influence to keep
us in prevailing light easterly flow. This will continue to push the
highest coverage towards the gulf coast and inland SW florida each
afternoon. Convection will generally be diurnally driven, developing
along the seabreezes in the late morning and afternoons.

Next weekend: another tropical wave, currently located around 35w,
is forecast to enter the picture as we go into next weekend. Models
have this feature tracking a little further north, potentially
having more direct impacts in terms of a deep moisture push. Exactly
when and in what shape it arrives will determine when enhanced rain
chances may return to south florida. For now though, scattered to
locally numerous showers and storms will be the forecast.

Marine...

prevailing east southeast winds will be in place for most of the
upcoming week with the atlantic ridge axis to the north of the
region. Speeds will generally be 10kts or less, though occasional 10-
15kts is possible across the atlantic. The main boating concern will
be showers and storms across the local waters each day. Prevailing
flow will lead to more storms pushing off the gulf coast in the
afternoons and evenings. Expect locally higher winds and waves near
any convection.

Hydrology...

a lack of widespread coverage the last couple of days has allowed
the ground to tolerate heavy rainfall a bit better. Locally heavy
rainfall anywhere in south florida could still cause minor flooding
over the coming days, but the prevailing flow will tend to
concentrate afternoon showers and storms towards gulf coast and
southwest florida.

Fisheating creek at palmdale continues to slowly rise and is
currently at 6.38 feet this morning. The forecast trend is an
expectation for fisheating creek to gradually rise over the coming
days as additional rainfall falls across the basin. At this time,
the forecast remains for the creek to stay below flood stage at
palmdale.
