Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Miami FL 712 PM EST Fri Jan 24 2020

Aviation. An area of SHRA in the interior should diminish this evening. The some +FG is possible in the interior in the early morning hours, through mid morning, which would bring IFR conditions to that area. FG is also possible towards the coasts as well, but there is too much uncertainty at this time to include in any TAFs, except APF and TMB. A cold front is forecast to move through by the morning hours, bringing a quiet weather day to South Florida tomorrow.

Update. No significant changes to the forecast. Kept patchy fog for most of the area, with areas in the center of the interior, where rain has been falling. A cold front is still forecast to come through, but the wind should be light enough that fog will continue to be possible. Then, a quiet weather day for tomorrow.

Prev Discussion. /issued 310 PM EST Fri Jan 24 2020/

Short Term .

Rest of Today through Saturday Night .

A few showers will be possible across the Atlantic waters, East Coast, and interior this afternoon with light south to southeasterly winds. Winds gradually become more southwesterly overnight before going calm, potentially allowing some fog to develop across the area overnight as a cold front approaches from the northwest. Another round of fog is possible overnight tonight as this front approaches. SREF is hinting that dense fog is possible over portions of Collier County, though fog will be possible across much of the region, perhaps even bleeding into the east coast metro areas by morning. Fog that does develop should dissipate by mid-morning.

The cold front is forecast to push into the area early Saturday morning, slowly working its way southeastward across the area during the day with light northwesterly winds in its wake. Saturday will only be slightly cooler and drier than Sunday, with the largest difference felt over the northern portions of the area. The biggest change will be felt Saturday night, with low temperatures falling into the mid 40s across the interior to the mid 50s along the East Coast.

Long Term .

Sunday through Monday Night .

High pressure at the surface and aloft dominates the region Sunday keeping the day dry and mostly sunny. Overnight Sunday into Monday a few different components make up this messy forecast .

1. A broad troughing pattern takes place across the eastern CONUS with a shortwave in the Gulf advancing eastward towards FL 2. A remnant boundary draped to the south lifts northward and eventually washes out over South FL 3. A vort max lobe associated with the aforementioned Gulf low pushes through the area

Therefore, PoPs reflect scattered to numerous coverage across the region overnight Sunday and through Monday, especially for the Gulf and Atlantic waters. The east coast may also see numerous showers as models are hinting at a convergent band setting up. For the past few days, global models were adamant on timing of the Gulf low but differed on intensity; however, with the latest GFS and ECMWF guidance (24.12Z), intensity is starting to line up. GFS is not as robust as what models previously suggested, though thunderstorms will still be possible during this time frame due to adequate instability, moisture, and shear across the region.

In comparing the forecast soundings at various locations, both models reveal wind profiles that are mostly unidirectional with a hearty low-level jet of approximately 40 to 60 knots, 0-3km SRH values ranging from 200 to 450 m2/s2, 0-3km bulk shear of 30 to 50 knots, and DCAPE between 600 to 750 J/kg. Furthermore, forecast derived PWATS range between 1.7 to 2.0 inches, which is close to the max moving average for this time of year. The combination of these parameters suggests that the environment may become supportive for stronger convection that is capable of producing isolated wind gusts, lightning, and minor localized flooding. Therefore, given the increased potential for inclement weather as denoted in the 3 reasons above, isolated to scattered thunderstorms are in the forecast. As always, the finer details will still need to be monitored as the system evolves over the upcoming weekend.

Tuesday through Friday .

Mostly dry conditions resume through the middle of the week across South Florida as high pressure returns and everything pushes offshore and away from the peninsula. Similar to what will occur overnight Sunday and through Monday, another weak shortwave crosses the Gulf of Mexico Tuesday into Wednesday. Model discrepancies yet again with this system -- GFS has low and associated frontal boundary pass over the region whereas the ECMWF dampens the low in the middle of the Gulf before it even reaches the state. Thus, kept chance of rain in the forecast.

By Friday, global models hint at yet another area of unsettled weather approaching FL ahead of a rather deep and amplified southern stream trough. Per usual, coverage and intensity this far out in time remain uncertain, and for that reason, have not strayed from guidance, keeping slight chance of rain in the forecast.

Throughout the long term forecast, temperatures will not stray too far from normal for this time of year. Highs will hang out in the 70s with overnight lows in the 50s and 60s.

Marine . Generally benign marine conditions are expected for the next couple of days as a weak cold front passes through the area on Saturday. Unsettled weather returns to the forecast Sunday night into Monday with thunderstorms possible along another cold front. Benign marine conditions should remain through much of the rest of the work week.

Aviation . Mostly VFR conditions are expected through the period. Southeasterly winds today will become light southerly overnight as a cold front approaches the area. This front should push through South Florida tomorrow morning, with winds turning north-northwesterly in its wake. Periods of light rain will continue across the East Coast today, with another round of fog possible across the area tonight ahead of the cold front.

Beach Forecast . A high risk of rip currents continues for the Atlantic beaches today, but conditions should improve some for the weekend. Extended the high risk for rip currents another 24 hours across the Palm beaches due to lingering swell. Elevated risk may continue for the Palm beaches throughout the weekend.

Preliminary Point Temps/PoPs. West Palm Beach 61 74 51 72 / 10 0 0 0 Fort Lauderdale 64 76 55 73 / 10 0 0 0 Miami 63 77 55 74 / 10 0 10 0 Naples 60 74 50 72 / 0 0 0 0
