Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Miami FL 628 PM EST Sat Jan 16 2021

AVIATION(00Z TAFS). VFR conditions will prevail throughout the forecast period. Winds will become light and variable this evening through the overnight hours. These winds will pick up out of the northwest by late Sunday morning to around 5 to 10 knots.

UPDATE. No changes needed to be made to the previous forecast as everything looks on track. High pressure will remain in control of the weather pattern tonight bringing dry conditions to the area. Northwesterly winds will become light and variable during the evening hours and any remaining cloud cover will start to diminish. Once the sky clears out later this evening and into the overnight hours, radiational cooling will be maximized. Low temperatures will fall into the lower 40s across the northwestern interior sections to the lower 50s along the east coast. Cold air advection continues throughout the day on Sunday as the northwesterly flow remains in place. High temperatures will only rise into the lower 60s across the northwestern interior to the upper 60s across the east coast metro areas.

PREV DISCUSSION. (Issued 255 PM EST Sat Jan 16 2021)

SHORT TERM . This Afternoon Through Sunday Evening .

Very quiet weather for the next day as high pressure builds in behind a cold front. The main concerns are marine and temperatures. Some of the wind and seas are still causing some issued for small craft in the outer waters of South Florida. Otherwise, for the mainland, tomorrows low temperatures are forecast to fall into the low to mid 40s in the western Lake region, up to the low to mid 50s in the Miami-Dade metro area. However, when the wind is factored in, even though it is light, the apparent temperatures will be a few degrees lower. The trend has been slightly warmer for the Miami-Dade, Naples, and Broward metro areas, where they look as though they may remain at 50F or above. The interior area and Palm Beach County are forecast to be in the low to upper 40s for the most part. Much of how cold it gets will likely have to do with how quickly we are able to lose cloud cover and how fast the wind decouples, to allow for radiational cooling to be maximized.

LONG TERM (Sunday Night through Saturday) . The long term period opens up with the previous frontal boundary retreating back towards the peninsula which could allow enough moisture to move into the very southern portions of the peninsula to allow for isolated shower activity for a brief period on Sunday night. A reinforcing front will move through the area early on Monday morning, supported at the mid-levels by a trough pushing across the region. In the wake of this boundary will be cooler and drier air.

With high pressure building over the southeastern United States by Tuesday, the drier and cooler pattern is going to prevail. A shift to an easterly flow could allow for shallow pockets of moisture to produce showers that come ashore from the Atlantic but rain chances are too low to mention in the forecast at this point. This pattern will remain through late week when the next system knocks on the door as a mid-level shortwave trough digs across the southern tier of the United States Friday into Saturday. This intrusion at the mid-levels will allow for a weak front to push south and east but the impulse will lose phase with the surface feature before it can make it through southern Florida intact. If this trend continues, that should allow for another fairly benign frontal passage though there is some uncertainty with the extended forecast period as these features could easily change in timing, phase, or magnitude.

Temperatures will be chilly on a few mornings in this period. Monday morning will be in the 50s with temperatures struggling to reach the 70s over some of the area. On Monday night/Tuesday morning, widespread 40s and 50s are forecast across South Florida. Sunny skies behind the front should allow temperatures to rebound on Tuesday afternoon into the 70s in most areas. The northeasterly flow by Tuesday night/Wednesday morning should allow some of the east coast metro to moderate back into the upper 50s/lower 60s but most of Southwest Florida will remain in the upper 40s/lower 50s. Wednesday sunshine will work to help moderate some of these colder inland areas but the improvement for Wednesday night/Thursday morning will be a few degrees as radiational cooling may still be fairly efficient with a lack of cloud cover. This slow warming trend will continue through the period with temperatures remaining around seasonal averages.

AVIATION(18Z TAFS) . Conditions are improving behind a cold front as high pressure builds in. VFR is forecast through the TAF period.

MARINE . A northwest wind, behind last nights cold front, is still around 20kts in the outer Gulf waters of South Florida. Wind over the Atlantic waters should be subsiding through the afternoon. Seas in the outer Gulf waters are still forecast to run around 7 feet into this evening. Otherwise, once things quiet down, high pressure should keep conditions quiet for the remainder of the week.

BEACHES . The Atlantic beaches should see low chances of rip currents, at least for the next several days. As the wind becomes more easterly for the middle of the week, the chances may become enhanced for the east coast.

The Gulf coast beaches have a rip current statement out for today and tomorrow, mainly for the strong onshore flow and the possible swell moving onshore. Conditions should begin to improve through the day tomorrow for the Gulf waters and remain low through at least the middle of the week.
