Synopsis.. Southwesterly winds ahead of a slowly approaching cold front will create cautionary conditions at times. This will also result in an increase in rain and Thunderstorms, with the strongest activity producing brief periods of rough seas and gusty winds. Additionally, frequent cloud-to-water lightning may also be possible.
Gulf stream hazards..Showers and Thunderstorms with gusty winds and locally higher seas will be possible through mid-week. The approximate location of the west wall of the gulf stream as of apr 17, 2021 at 1200 utc... 6 nautical miles east northeast of fowey rocks. 8 nautical miles east northeast of port everglades. 4 nautical miles southeast of lake worth. 8 nautical miles southeast of jupiter inlet.

Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Miami FL 246 PM EDT Mon Apr 19 2021

. Strong to Severe Thunderstorms Possible This Afternoon . . Unsettled pattern remains over the next few days .

MESOSCALE UPDATE (This Afternoon and Evening). A stout 500 hPa short-wave impulse is allowing for a low-level mass response resulting in enhanced low-level convergence along and ahead of a stalled stationary boundary across South-Central Florida. Efficient transport of moisture via S/SW 1000-850 hPa flow of 15-25 kt will allow for an air mass characterized by high theta-e values to be transported along areas of enhanced localized convergence ahead of the aforementioned frontal boundary. This will allow for ML CAPE values of 2000-2500 J/kg to be realized across most of the CWA. An expansive cloud canopy associated with a complex of organized thunderstorms will limit the extent of instability where cooler outflow and cloud debris exist, however areas near Lake Okeechobee, particularly Glades, Hendry, and Palm Beach Counties appear to be within the greatest risk area for isolated strong to severe thunderstorms. Furthermore, the orientation of horizontal convective rolls and modest 0-6 km deep-layer shear of roughly 35-40 kt may allow for discrete supercells to form ahead of the primary convective complex associated with the larger synoptic forcing. Given the aforementioned setup and unfolding scenario, strong/severe storms capable of producing isolated damaging wind gusts, occasional/frequent lightning, and small hail are all possible with any storms that are able to take advantage of a favorable environment. An isolated brief tornado also cannot be ruled out.

SHORT TERM (Tonight through Tuesday). With the surface frontal boundary lingering, passing mid-level shortwave troughs and diurnal heating cycles will lead to surges and eventual erosion in convective activity. A lull late this evening into the early overnight is possible but another flare up in convection cannot be ruled out, particularly if a southerly boundary from Cuba survives a transit across the straits of Florida.

The moisture profile will continue to increase, particularly around Lake Okeechobee closer to the boundary where today's repeated rainfall could end up being the start of a heavy rainfall event that could last through at least Tuesday. Precipitable water values could reach close to 1.75 to 2 inches in these areas, which would high for this time of year.

The additional convection and the proximity of the front will enable increased cloud cover which will help keep temperatures a few degrees cooler with mid to upper 80s across the area. Showers and storms remain in the forecast with cool temperatures aloft (-8 to -9 deg C at 500 mb) remaining through Tuesday. With that, the concern for strong to severe thunderstorms continues with the primary concerns being damaging winds, hail, excessive rainfall, and tornadic activity.

LONG TERM (Tuesday Night through Monday). An exiting mid-level shortwave on Tuesday evening will allow for another lull in convection to start the long term but the presence of the surface frontal boundary will continue into Thursday when guidance suggests that a slot of drier air will attempt to push in behind the front as it sags southward over the southern part of the peninsula. This may allow some northern portions of the area, such as the Lake Okeechobee region, to have the potential of a respite from the moisture but the relative lack of available forcing around this time may also help clamp down on convection compared to earlier days.

On Friday, the next system of interest to our region emerges into the central United States. With this system, a mid-level trough will push eastward with an associated surface frontal boundary pushing eastward across the Gulf towards Florida for the weekend. There is still some uncertainty with the extended period, the wet and unsettled trend appears to be the main story for the next 7 days.

AVIATION(18Z TAFS). A band of convection has set up just north of PBI this afternoon. Additional convection will be possible across the area through the afternoon before a brief break this evening. More showers and storms may develop later this evening across far southern portions of FL. Kept tempos up north closer to the afternoon convection and continued VCs overnight generally for APF and TMB. Southwesterly winds will decrease shortly after sunset but ramp back up during the daylight hours on Tuesday.

MARINE. A cold front moving into south central Florida will bring showers and thunderstorms to the local waters through the middle of the week. Winds may reach cautionary levels at times, mainly over the Atlantic waters. Strong to severe thunderstorms may develop over the coastal waters during the next couple of days, bringing brief periods of gusty winds and rough seas. The front will linger around the region through much of the week.

BEACHES. A moderate rip current risk continues today for the Palm Beaches. This enhanced risk might continue on Tuesday as a small residual ENE swell lingers over the northern Atlantic marine zones off Palm Beach County.
