Synopsis..Moderate to strong northerly winds and elevated seas will persist today as a strong surface high pressure system builds over the eastern half of the country. As the high continues its eastward advance, winds become a light to moderate easterly. A low pressure system and associated cold front tracks eastward over the gulf coast late Thursday into Friday morning, bringing the next round of unsettled weather. Offshore flow and drier conditions set up Friday and continues into the weekend following the passage of this weather system.

Area Forecast Discussion . UPDATED National Weather Service Miami FL 700 AM EST Tue Jan 21 2020

Aviation. Generally VFR with breezy to gusty northwesterly to northerly wind developing.

Prev Discussion . /issued 303 AM EST Tue Jan 21 2020/ . Wind Chill Advisory: Tonight Across South Florida . . Hazardous Marine and Beach Conditions Linger .

Short Term (Today through Wednesday).

A drier, cooler, and breezy day for South Florida behind the departed cold front. Aloft, a mid-level low will cut off from the main trough over northeastern Florida and coastal Georgia today. A surface reflection of this feature will end up developing a low over the Atlantic waters north of the Bahamas. The mid-level low will push southward across the Atlantic waters on Wednesday before being reabsorbed and pushed back into the open Atlantic.

Temperatures today will struggle to reach into the 60s over portions of Southwest Florida with other portions of South Florida remaining in the mid to upper 60s. Some portions of the Atlantic coast may be able to warm to around 70 degrees, particularly those with an urban heat island effect in play. The brisk northwesterly flow will pick up by afternoon with a persistence forecast through the overnight and Wednesday morning hours. This flow regime will allow for polar continental air to push down the spine of the peninsula towards southern Florida.

A few threats may emerge from this setup overnight including the threat of hazardous wind chill values and the potential for a freeze over portions of inland Southwest Florida. The wind chill concern is fairly high confidence with this forecast issuance as the presence of the low to the east and the high building to the north will create a pretty tight gradient wind flow. The cold air advection due to the persistent northwesterly flow should allow wind chill values to fall below 35 degrees across most of South Florida for several hours overnight into Monday morning with some portions of inland Southwest Florida potentially experiencing wind chill values in the mid 20s. At this point in time, the confidence in the required 3- hour duration precludes the issuance of a Wind Chill Watch or Warning for inland Southwest Florida, but all of South Florida will be under a Wind Chill Advisory for tonight with this forecast package issuance.

There is a non-zero threat of a freeze for inland Southwest Florida tonight, particularly along the State Road 29 corridor of Glades, Hendry, and inland Collier Counties. One mitigating factor is that the elevated wind flow could maintain enough mixing to prevent temperatures from dropping below freezing. Mind you the forecast currently straddles freezing in these areas and this will have to be monitored. The statistical guidance does shed some insights into the potential for a freeze, particularly if the wind were to decouple more than forecast overnight in the area of concern which could allow for some more efficient radiational cooling. The majority of the raw and MOS guidance maintains temperatures above freezing with only the bias corrected members attempting to produce below-freezing temperatures. Due to the recency of this pattern change, the confidence in the ability of the bias-corrected guidance to identify a pattern for bias is low. The current forecast is a touch cooler than most of the MOS guidance which is cooler than the raw guidance.

Temperatures should begin to warm after sunrise on Wednesday with the stiff northwesterly wind gradually diminishing through the day. Atlantic moisture combined with the presence of the mid-level low over the Atlantic could produce some rain shower activity which should remain over the waters though a stray coastal shower cannot be ruled out, particularly in northern Palm Beach County. Maximum Temperatures will still struggle to reach the 60s across much of the area with only the immediate Atlantic coast reaching the upper 60s. Wednesday night will still be chilly but not as cold as tonight. Widespread upper 40s over inland Southwest Florida with 50s elsewhere except for lower 60s along the Atlantic coast are forecasted. Lighter wind and warmer temperatures will help warm wind chill values into the 40s across Southwest Florida and 50s across Southeast Florida.

Long Term.

Thursday through Tuesday .

As the surface low to our east treks further into the Atlantic, winds will continue to relax on Thursday, while also veering out of the east and modifying the airmass across South Florida. With warming and moistening air, showers will linger over the Atlantic waters and temperatures will rebound back to around seasonable values by the start of the weekend. However, upstream over Texas and the northwestern Gulf, phased long and shortwave troughing will help initiate cyclogenesis at the surface. As this system jets off towards the northeast, an attendant cold front will approach from the northwest, potentially crossing South Florida late Saturday into early Sunday. Convection may increase ahead or along the frontal boundary, but thunder remains out of the forecast at this time with models depicting the loss of upper level support.

Behind the front, temperatures look to cool back down slightly below normal. Daytime temperatures are forecast to be in the mid to upper 70s across South Florida before dropping to the upper 60s and low 70s behind the aforementioned cold front. Early morning lows will be in the mid to upper 50s across the interior and low 60s along the east coast ahead of the boundary, and thereafter, dip into the mid to upper 40s west of the Lake to the upper 50s and near 60 along the East Coast Sunday and Monday night.

For the early portions of next week, global models develop an area of precipitation over the central Gulf of Mexico behind the frontal boundary. However, models handle the fate of this area of precipitation slightly differently. The GFS keeps the the mass well to our southwest, while the ECMWF pushes some of the precipitation across South Florida. Therefore, have added the mention of showers to the forecast, but have split the difference by only raising PoPs across the peninsula to around 20% and higher over the Atlantic waters. Will continue to monitor over the next several days as things could certainly change as we get closer in time.

Marine.

The wind will drive the hazardous marine conditions over all the local waters into Wednesday with swell driving the maintenance of hazardous marine conditions in the Atlantic waters through the rest of the week. A non-zero threat of gale conditions, particularly frequent gusts to gale, is possible over the Atlantic waters off Palm Beach County. Confidence is not high enough for a Gale Watch or Warning at this time but a short-fused Gale Warning issuance cannot be ruled out of winds reach gale due to a strengthening low over the Atlantic waters.

Beach Forecast.

An elevated risk of rip currents along the Gulf and Atlantic beaches today with high risk for Palm Beach and Collier. The Gulf risk should begin to diminish as the wind dies down but the increasing swell in the Atlantic will allow the elevated risk to at least linger if not increase along the Atlantic beaches of South Florida through the end of the week with the potential lasting in the Palm Beaches into the weekend. High surf may become a concern for the Atlantic beaches, particularly the Palm Beaches, by Wednesday and lingering through late in the week.
