Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Miami FL 1027 AM EST Fri Jan 24 2020

Update. Previous forecast appears to be on track. Some showers will be possible today along the East Coast and across the interior this afternoon. Fog will be possible overnight tonight ahead of an approaching cold front.

Prev Discussion. /issued 617 AM EST Fri Jan 24 2020/

Aviation . Mostly VFR conditions are expected through the period. Some fog currently over the interior portions of the area should dissipate through the morning. Winds will become southeasterly today before becoming 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.

Prev Discussion . /issued 332 AM EST Fri Jan 24 2020/

HIGH RISK OF RIP CURRENTS EAST COAST BEACHES TODAY.

CHANGEABLE WEATHER THIS WEEKEND INTO EARLY NEXT WEEK.

Short Term . High pressure over the Western Atlantic waters will move further east into the Atlantic waters today, as low pressure over the Tennessee Valley moves northeast towards the Great Lakes. This will allow for a cold front associated with the low to move southeast towards South Florida today. This will allow for the wind flow over South Florida to be east southeast today allowing for some low level moisture to work into the region from the Atlantic waters leading to isolated showers developing over the Atlantic waters working westward into the east coast metro areas before dissipating. Therefore, the slight chance of showers will remain in the forecast for the east coast metro areas and the adjacent coastal waters for today. Highs today will be in the 70s over most areas except around 80 over the western interior areas.

The cold front will continue to move southward tonight and through South Florida late tonight into early Saturday morning. Ahead of the front, the wind flow will become more south/southwest tonight swinging to a westerly direction towards sunrise on Saturday. This will allow for the low level moisture to remain in place leading to some fog development over South Florida late tonight. The best coverage of fog should be over the areas south of Alligator Alley late tonight. Therefore, patchy fog has been added to the forecast for late tonight for most of the region with even areas of fog over the southern interior and southeast metro areas of South Florida. Lows tonight will be 50s over most areas, except lower to mid 60s east coast metro areas.

The cold front will continue to move into the Florida straits on Saturday as high pressure moves quickly eastward through the Southeastern United States. This will lead to northern wind flow along with dry weather over South Florida on Saturday into Saturday night. Highs on Saturday will be in the 70s with lows Saturday night in the 50s, except 40s over the northern interior areas.

Long Term .

Sunday through Friday .

The extended period will be characterized by oscillating periods of drier and wetter conditions, along with mostly seasonable temperatures before slightly warming towards the end of the week.

The first period begins drier and cooler for the of end the weekend, as high pressure briefly builds in behind the cold front mention is the previous section. The pattern then transitions into a more unsettled one for the start of next week as models continue to develop a surface low over the northwestern Gulf of Mexico in response to an eastward propagating southern stream shortwave. As this system advances towards the Florida peninsula, a remnant boundary draped to our south will begin to lift northward, increasing rain chances across the area on Monday. Therefore, PoPs reflect scattered to numerous coverage across the area. Although guidance remains in fair agreement on timing, there is still plenty of variability regarding the intensity of this system. The latest ECMWF maintains a weaker low, while the GFS, having trended down from yesterdays run, is still the robustious of the two models.

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 knots, 0-3km SRH values to roughly 220 m2/s2 coupled with shear in excess of 30 knots, and DCAPE between 500 to 700 J/kg. Furthermore, forecast derived PWATS range between 1.6 to 1.8 inches, which is close to the max moving average for this time of year in sounding climatology. All of these parameters combined suggests the environment may become supportive for stronger convection that is capable of producing isolated wind gusts and minor localized flooding. Therefore, given the increased potential for inclement weather as the system pushes across South Florida, have introduced isolated thunderstorms to the forecast. As always, the finer details will still need to be monitored as the system evolves.

Thereafter, dry conditions resume through the middle of the week as the system journeys further into the Atlantic. However, models hint at a similar synoptic set up late in the week that could increase rain chances once again. 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.

Marine . The winds will be east southeast today 10 to 15 knots before swinging to a south/southwest direction 10 knots or less ahead of a cold front. The winds will then become northerly on Saturday into Sunday around 10 knots before going variable Sunday night into Monday with a weak low moving through the Florida Peninsula from the Gulf of Mexico.

A small to moderate northeast swell over the Atlantic waters will continue to slowly decrease today into this week, but could still be around 2 to 3 feet over the Atlantic waters of Palm Beach County early next week. This will allow for the Palm Beach County Atlantic seas to slowly decrease from around 7 feet this morning to 4 to 6 feet by this afternoon and then down to 2 to 4 feet by late this weekend into early next week. Rest of the Atlantic seas of South Florida will subside from 4 to 6 feet this morning to 2 feet or less by late this weekend into early next week. The Gulf seas should remain at 2 feet or less through early next week. Therefore, the SCA conditions will continue for the Atlantic seas of Palm Beach county through this morning with an SCEC for rest of the Atlantic seas of South Florida.

Beach Forecast . The northeast swells will continue to decrease today over the Atlantic waters. However, low tides are forecast to occur over the east coast taf sites this afternoon which will help to keep the risk of rip currents ongoing long the east coast beaches of South Florida today. Therefore, the High Risk of Rip Currents will continue for the east coast beaches of South Florida through 00Z tonight. The threat of rip currents should then come down a little bit this weekend for Broward and Miami-Dade Counties, but could remain high along the beaches of Palm Beach County due to the small northeast swell. Therefore, the High Risk of Rip Currents will continue for the east coast beaches of South Florida through 00Z tonight and may be needed to be extended later today for the beaches of Palm Beach County.

The tides are also running half of foot above normal along the east coast beaches of South Florida due to the new moon phase and should continue through the weekend. During high tide periods, there could be some minor coastal flooding along the east coast beaches of South Florida especially near inlets and jetties locations.
