Synopsis..Light to moderate onshore flow will persist into early next week ahead of an approaching cold front. Winds will then shift to be more northerly and increase late Monday night into Tuesday as the front passes. Moderate northerly winds will continue through at least midweek before decreasing and shifting to be more northwesterly by Thursday. 1-2 foot seas are also expected through Monday evening before building to 3-5 feet in the wake of the cold front.

Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Miami FL 737 PM EDT Sat Sep 26 2020

Aviation. Scattered showers and thunderstorms this evening will continue to diminish and VFR conditions will prevail throughout the overnight hours. Light and variable winds overnight will increase out of the southeast to around 10 knots by the middle of Sunday morning. Scattered showers and thunderstorms will develop along the east and west coast sea breezes as they move inland during the afternoon hours. There could be periods of MVFR or even IFR in and around showers and thunderstorms.

Update. Scattered showers and thunderstorms will continue especially across the southern areas for the next several hours before diminishing. Winds across the region will be light and variable overnight with mainly dry conditions across most of South Florida. A slight chance of showers cannot be ruled out later in the overnight and into Sunday morning over the Atlantic and Gulf coastal waters. Scattered showers and thunderstorms will develop once again on Sunday afternoon as the east and west coast sea breeze develops. The southeasterly flow will be slightly stronger during the afternoon on Sunday, so the greatest coverage of showers and thunderstorms will focus over the interior and west coast sections. High temperatures on Sunday will generally range from the upper 80s across the east coast to the lower 90s across the interior sections.

Prev Discussion. /issued 414 PM EDT Sat Sep 26 2020/

Short Term (Rest of Today through Sunday) . Light southerly to southwesterly flow with Atlantic surface high pressure and elongated high pressure aloft at the mid-levels will permit sea breezes to be the dominant features this afternoon and again on Sunday. The light flow will also allow outflow boundaries to play a large part in the convective focus today. The westerly component to the general flow will allow the Gulf sea breeze to be favored and the potential pinning of the Atlantic sea breeze. Another element to monitor is the temperature of the coastal waters which is generally in the mid 80s. As the landmass heats up into the upper 80s and lower 90s, the contrast may not be enough with the waters to allow the most efficient sea breeze to develop and push inland.

The moisture will remain a concern today and tomorrow with precipitable water values above 2 inches expected as will the potential for slow and/or erratic storm motion due to the interplay between the mean storm flow and the motion of boundaries. There continues to be a signal in the high resolution guidance for portions of the east coast metro today from southern Palm Beach into Miami-Dade for sustained convection which could lead to localized flooding. A vigorous storm or two could also create strong wind gusts of 45 to 55 mph and the boundary interactions certainly could permit funnel clouds.

Overnight, convection should diminish over land though some may remain over the local waters through the night into early Sunday morning. Some low clouds and/or mist are possible again tonight, particularly in the inland areas. The sea breeze pattern repeats on Sunday though the boundaries may be able to advance further inland before convection initiates, allowing the focus to remain a bit further from the coast. Again, there is some uncertainty with the location and timing of convection as this summerlike pattern during a transition season can be a bit tricky to nail down.

Long Term (Monday through Saturday) .

Monday and Tuesday

Upper level ridging breaks down, as a short-wave trough transverses the Florida Peninsula. A shift in the low-level wind flow materializes as a response, with S flow becoming more SE/SSE. This will shift convective development progressively away from the metros, and more towards the interior, with the highest signal over Hendry/Glades County and Lake Okeechobee region. A broad convergent and cyclonic low-level mass response in the wind field allows for tropical moisture to congeal over this area, with forecast PWI (precipitable water indices) in the 2.2-2.4 ins range, which collocates with broad upper level divergence. This synoptic setup is favorable for heavy rainfall over parts of aforementioned region. Areas that quickly become saturated will have to be monitored, especially given that this event seems to be prolonged through much of Monday. Tuesday appears to be a bit drier for the region, though PoPs are still in the 60-70 range over the western/northern interior.

Wednesday

By Wednesday morning, a deeper, more vigorous shortwave trough and attendant frontal system transverses the southeastern Gulf states (including Florida). This trough fills as it approaches Florida, owing to a strong 250 hPa jet-streak located east of the trough axis. Nevertheless, there may be linear-type rain bands and possibly thunderstorms where destabilization maximizes ahead of the cold front. In regards to the position of the actual front, GFS/ECMWF are both trending towards a slightly more southerly position of the cold front, which presently indicates a noticeable gradient of drier air/cooler temperatures ranging from Palm Beach County to Collier County. If any relief is provided to these areas, it will likely be brief and mild, since the advected air mass becomes highly modified as it moves southerly towards sub-tropical latitudes.

Thursday through Saturday

Based on the southward trend in the forecast frontal position, there is general model agreement that the front could stall over or just offshore the far SE peninsula. This pattern could result in widespread moisture becoming concentrated over much of South Florida. This area of broad convergence does not appear to shift much between next Thursday and Saturday, so widespread rainfall could be in store late in the week going into next weekend. However, given the higher uncertainty towards the end of the forecast period, be sure to monitor updates to the forecast as clarity in the pattern emerges.

Maximum temperatures are forecast to be seasonable: upper 80s/lower 90s across South Florida. A slight decreasing trend in temperatures should become realized mid-to-late next week, with an approaching cold front. While the air-mass will be highly modified, mild cold air advection and increasing cold cover will lower maximum temperatures to the mid/upper 80s across much of the area.

Marine . As high pressure remains, shower and thunderstorm activity will be the primary concern through the weekend into early next week. Some of the showers and storms may bring locally gusty conditions and possibly even a few waterspouts.

Aviation . Convection will focus along the sea breezes and other boundaries this afternoon and evening. Some showers and storms could move near the terminals, particularly the east coast ones, which could bring bouts of sub-VFR. Short-fused amendments will likely be necessary today. Convection should diminish after 02z. Some low cigs/mist may once again affect some of the inland east coast terminals which could cause brief bouts of sub-VFR overnight into early Sunday morning. Sea breeze pattern expected on Sunday, though convection may be focused further inland than today.
