Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Miami FL 346 PM EDT Tue Apr 7 2020

Short Term (Today- Wednesday). A shift in the pattern as a surface ridge of high pressure is pushed southward ahead of an advancing front allowing the wind to become westerly. Sea breezes are still possible on Wednesday afternoon with the Atlantic sea breeze likely being pinned closer to the coast than it has been the last few days. A drying trend should keep rain chances minimal, but the pinned sea breeze could focus convection and possibly permit a few showers to pop up.

To the north, the frontal boundary begins to sag southward into the peninsula with increasing cloud cover and moisture. Overnight temperatures will range from mid 60s inland to lower 70s along the coasts. Daytime highs will be warm with temperatures pushing into the 90s over most of the area. Some portions of the Gulf and Atlantic coasts may be able to escape the 90s with help from the sea breeze.

Long Term.

Thursday and Friday .

A building mid-level ridge across the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean will dominant the weather pattern across South Florida to end the week. A surface ridge, although weaker will allow for southerly to southwesterly winds across the area. Drier air in the mid levels will suppress shower activity Thursday. A little bit more moisture on Friday may allow for an increase in shower and storm potential particularly along the sea breeze boundary.

The main story given the ridging and southerly/southwesterly wind flow will be the high and low temperatures being well above normal. Highs will be in the low 90s with some mid 90s for inland areas, with upper 80s along the coasts. Lows will range from the lower to mid 60s over inland southwest Florida to the mid 70s along the east coast. Some climate sites may approach record high maxima and record warm minima.

Saturday Into Next Week .

The aforementioned mid-level ridge will begin to breakdown as we enter the weekend. A series of shortwaves will move across the northern Gulf and a frontal boundary will be moving down the Florida peninsula and become stationary somewhere between central and South Florida. The winds will veer becoming more easterly which will bring little relief to the high temps, but still in the upper 80s above normal.

As we move into early next week a shortwave with a broad low pressure system at the surface will be moving from the Gulf and then up the eastern seaboard. Winds will veer to a more southeasterly/southerly direction with increased warm moist air advected across South Florida. This will allow for increased temperatures once again around 90 to low 90s over the interior. Mentionable shower chances in the forecast with this shortwave passing in close enough vicinity to the north and increased moisture with the southerly wind component. We will monitor thunderstorm potential with subsequent forecast for early next week, with the potential of an increased low level jet around 35 to 40 knots early next week which would allow storms to have the potential to produce gusty winds. However, we will monitor that as we move through the rest of this week and the weekend.

Marine. Swell should diminish today, allowing waves to decrease heading into the evening. Accordingly, the Small Craft Advisory expiration this evening appears to be in line with the forecast expectation. Generally benign conditions are expected through the rest of the week.

Aviation. Generally VFR with afternoon shower activity focused inland of the terminals. Light easterly winds with a sea breeze reaching APF today. Wind flow becoming light and variable overnight before turning westerly on Wednesday. An Atlantic sea breeze on Wednesday afternoon could develop but will be pinned along the east coast which could cause some wind direction variability and gustiness.

Beach Forecast. Lingering swell along the Palm Beach coast will lead to one more day of a High Risk of Rip Currents , then threat of rip currents along the Palm Beach beaches should begin to diminish. An elevated risk may remain for the Palm Beaches through the weekend.

Preliminary Point Temps/PoPs. West Palm Beach 71 89 69 90 / 10 10 0 0 Fort Lauderdale 74 88 71 90 / 10 10 0 0 Miami 73 89 70 91 / 10 10 0 0 Naples 70 84 71 84 / 10 10 0 0

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.
