Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Miami FL 319 AM EDT Thu Jul 9 2020

. Another hot, stormy day across South Florida .

Short Term (Today-Friday). Near record warmth over the next couple of days as temperatures reach into the lower to mid 90s with triple digit heat index values across South Florida. The light surface wind flow provided by high pressure holding influence over the region will enable diurnal sea breeze formation. Convective activity will focus along the sea breezes and any remnant boundaries including the lingering moisture tail behind a surface low being monitored by NHC for possible tropical or sub-tropical development off the Carolinas.

Aloft, the pattern is shifting with the mid-level area of high pressure sliding south over Cuba and the northern Caribbean while the trough extending along the eastern seaboard continues to slowly amplify southward. Showers and storms today should be contained mainly to the eastern two-thirds of the peninsula with the potential for some stronger cells around the east coast metro again today. Gusty winds, torrential rainfall, and frequent lightning are possible with any storms that form today but a slow-moving strong cell or two could potentially produce damaging wind gusts, localized street flooding, and funnel clouds when interacting with boundaries. The chances of small hail, while non-zero, do appear less than in previous days as temperatures are a bit warmer aloft and the lapse rates in the hail growth zone are not as prime to support much hail growth.

The pattern is similar on Friday, though some additional moisture along a perturbation from the Gulf could allow for morning convection on the west coast to eventually traverse the peninsula through the day similar to earlier in the week. The afternoon and evening convective focus again will be the eastern half of the peninsula where the westerly to southwesterly flow will help pin the Atlantic sea breeze around the east coast metro.

Long Term (Saturday-Wednesday). The pattern will become more unsettled in the long term as the mid-level trough lingers into the early parts of the next work week. Enhanced surface moisture along the eastern seaboard of the United States in wake of the Carolina low is also a feature to support convective activity through the weekend and early next week.

The pattern begins to shift as high pressure attempts to build in over the western and northern Gulf by mid-week to close out the extended period. While this cuts off the mid-level support for the unsettled pattern, the northern extent of an easterly wave traversing the Caribbean will approach the Bahamas to close out the extended period and could have some impacts to the forecast for our area worth monitoring.

Marine. Outside of convection, winds and seas will be mainly light through the forecast period. The influence of the disturbance along the eastern seaboard and a reinforcing trough over the NE Gulf of Mexico will temporarily tighten the gradient allowing winds to increase to around 15 knots from Saturday night to Monday mainly over the Atlantic waters. Showers and thunderstorms (with associated higher wind and seas) will increase in coverage over all local waters this weekend through early next week. Swell generated by the disturbance along the eastern seaboard will also need to be monitored.

Prev Discussion. /issued 151 AM EDT Thu Jul 9 2020/

Aviation . Generally light wind flow may lead to some directional variability. Sea breezes are expected to form again with the Gulf sea breeze likely to progress further inland than the Atlantic sea breeze. Convection is possible as early as late morning through the evening hours. Some convection could linger around the east coast into the late evening. Confidence in convective impacts is not high enough to include anything above a PROB30 for the east coast terminals with this issuance.
