Aviation.

TSRA should diminish along the Gulf coast over the next few hours. Thereafter prevailing VFR tonight, although brief MVFR ceilings are possible. A few showers may impact the east coast terminals later tonight into Monday morning, but confidence in impacts is limited so stuck with VCSH for the moment. Breezy easterly flow continues with gusts to around 20 to 25 kt possible tomorrow after 15z.

..HEAVY RAINFALL AND A FEW STRONG STORMS POSSIBLE ACROSS SOUTH FLORIDA MID TO LATE WEEK .

Short Term .

This afternoon into Tuesday .

A weak cold front over Central Florida will continue to move southward towards South Florida through tonight before stalling out over the Lake Okeechobee region on Tuesday. This will keep the wind flow in an easterly direction through Tuesday allowing for the east coast sea breeze to push inland this afternoon and again on Tuesday, while keeping the west coast sea breeze over the west coast metro areas. Therefore, scattered showers and thunderstorms are expected to develop along the sea breezes this afternoon and again on Tuesday with the best coverage over the western areas of South Florida. The east coast metro areas could see isolated showers late tonight into Tuesday morning on the easterly wind flow.

Wednesday and Wednesday night .

The frontal boundary will remain nearly stationary over the Lake Okeechobee region, as a disturbance over the Yucatan Peninsula moves slowly to the west northwest in the Southwestern Gulf of Mexico. As the disturbance moves slowly west northwest, a low level trough will develop eastward into the western Caribbean sea and into the Florida Straits before moving slowly northward towards South Florida Wednesday night. This will allow for deeper tropical moisture to work into South Florida from the South with PWAT values getting up into the 1.9 to 2.0 inch range by Wednesday night. This will allow for scattered to numerous showers and thunderstorms to develop on Wednesday and lasting into Wednesday night over South Florida with some heavy rainfall.

Thursday and Thursday night .

The disturbance is forecast by the short range models to slowly move northward through the Southwestern Gulf of Mexico allowing for the low level trough to move slowly northward through South Florida. This will keep the deep tropical moisture in place with PWAT values in the 1.9 to 2.1 inch range along with scattered to numerous showers and thunderstorms and heavy rainfall.

The short range models are also showing that Storm Relative Helicity will also be increasing across South Florida Wednesday night into Thursday as the low level trough moves through the area. This may help to generate a few strong rotating storms over South Florida during this time frame.

More on the heavy rainfall potential in the hydro section below.

NHC is also giving this disturbance an 90 percent chance of development into a tropical system in the next 2 to 5 days.

Long Term .

Friday through Monday .

All eyes turn towards the Gulf of Mexico for the end of the week and this weekend, as global models continue to suggest that an area of low pressure will lift north into the Gulf of Mexico and western Carribean Sea during this period. Confidence remains rather low at this time with considerable differences still displayed between the GFS and ECMWF regarding the strength and location of this feature. These disparities in the strength and location will play a crucial role in the overall forecast.

Currently, the GFS is the slightly faster and more eastern solution. The latest run depicts the low emerging a bit closer to the western coast of South Florida and dragging a deeper pool of moisture (PWATS approx 2.5 inches) northward across the peninsula, whereas, the ECMWF has the center of the low further west into the Gulf of Mexico, along with a few drier pockets across South Florida. Regardless of these differences, guidance still hints at sufficient moisture remaining in place for the potential for heavy rainfall and localized flooding. This is could become problematic given the (very wet) antecedent conditions from the event earlier in the week. Therefore, with the high uncertainty in place, forecast changes will likely continue. So stay tuned for updates as we monitor how this event unfolds.

Marine . The winds will remain east southeast direction through the week, as the speeds will be increasing to 10 to 15 knots over most of the Atlantic waters, except 15 to 20 knots in the Atlantic waters tonight into Tuesday. This will allow for the seas to remain below 3 feet over most of South Florida waters, except for the Atlantic waters where the seas should get up to 2 to 5 feet. Therefore, an SCEC will be issued for the Atlantic waters tonight.

Aviation . Breezy easterly flow will continue through the taf period and become gusty after 15Z tomorrow. A gulf breeze should develop over KAPF by 19Z with vicinity TSRA until 02Z. VFR conditions should prevail for all terminals, with reduced vis and cigs at KAPF with passing SHRA/TSRA. Thereafter, VCSH has been added for the east coast terminals and continuing through the remainder of the period.

Beach Forecast . The threat of rip currents along the east coast beaches will be increasing through the rest of this week, due to the east southeast winds increasing in speed.

Hydrology . As mentioned earlier, the PWAT values will be increasing to 1.9 to 2.1 inches over South Florida for the middle to end of this week. These PWAT values are around the 90th percentile range for this time of year. This usually means heavy rainfall possible across South Florida and the short range models are forecasting about 1 inch over the east coast metro areas to around 3 inches over the west coast metro areas from about Wednesday through Thursday night. However, if any thunderstorms do train over the same area the rainfall amounts will be much higher than forecasted.

The grounds are still very saturated over South Florida due to the heavy rainfall last week over the east coast metro areas and the heavy rainfall over the interior and west coast metro areas over last weekend. Therefore, it will not take much rainfall to cause flooding over South Florida and the Flash Flood Guidance is showing 2 to 3 inches of rainfall in 1 to 3 hours can lead to flooding.

We will continue to closely monitor this developing weather situation for South Florida and residents and visitors of South Florida should keep up with the forecast changes.
