AMZ600 Synopsis For Jupiter Inlet To Ocean Reef Fl Out To 60 Nm And For East Cape Sable To Bonita Beach Fl Out To 60 Nm- 1016 Am Est Sat Dec 14 2019
Synopsis.. A cold front is moving across the region today with showers and Thunderstorms along and ahead of the front. Small craft advisory conditions continue over the palm beach coastal waters today with seas remaining elevated in the gulf stream. Northerly winds are expected behind a frontal passage today with advisory levels possibly continuing over the palm beach waters. Hazardous boating conditions are expected to begin improving in the wake of the front. However, another stronger front will push through around middle of next week and may create hazardous marine conditions at that time.
Gulf stream hazards...seas subsiding to around 4 feet today. The approximate location of the west wall of the gulf stream as of dec 14, 2019 at 1200 utc... 7 nautical miles east northeast of fowey rocks. 16 nautical miles east northeast of port everglades. 12 nautical miles east southeast of lake worth. 16 nautical miles east southeast of jupiter inlet.

Aviation. VFR should prevail through 14Z, then periods of MVFR are possible as a decaying frontal boundary moves across South Florida. Best chances of vis/cigs impacts will be between 17-21Z as the bulk of the weather associated with the front reaches the terminals. Chance for thunderstorms increased a little with latest update, but overall confidence on having thunderstorm in the vicinity of the terminals remains low. TAFS will continue to carry VCSH/SHRA at this time and will amend if necessary. Some gusty periods are possible as winds veer the SW and then NW by this evening.

Discussion .

Short Term (Today through Sunday Night) . Latest sfc analyses and model initial data depict a cluster of 3 low pressure systems moving over the eastern seaboard, with an associated sfc frontal boundary extending from the Carolinas down to the central Gulf region. Behind the front, a dome of high pressure is establishing over the SE states, which is gradually filtering into the northern portions of the FL peninsula. Meanwhile, abundant low level moisture still lingers over SoFlo, which also remains in the warm sector of the frontal event. But there is still a persisting layer of drier air in the mid levels as depicted by the 00z MFL sounding data.

With the described synoptic scenario in place, winds will continue to veer SW ahead of the front, while its parent low migrates further to the NE and into the west Atlantic during the weekend. Model guidance seem to finally push the front across SoFlo today, and past the FL Keys by Sunday. Expect abundant cloud cover, scattered showers, and perhaps a thunderstorm or two with the FROPA, with the bulk of the weather occurring during the afternoon hours. Overall thermodynamic and dynamic support remains marginal, with best lifting/instability remaining well north of the area. Also, the aforementioned dry layer aloft will continue to limit vertical development of individual cells. Therefore, no significant thunderstorm activity is anticipated attm, and if some storms do form, it will likely happen during the late morning/early afternoon hours and mainly around the Lake/Glades county area where the best of the remaining frontal dynamic lifting will reside.

Winds continue to veer to a NW/N flow tonight in the wake of the FROPA, then NE by Sunday. A modest cooling trend will establish across the peninsula with a rather brief cold/drier air advection event on Sunday. Low temperatures Sunday morning are expected to drop some 15-17 degrees compared to the previous morning, into the low 50s north/interior areas, and to near 60 along the east coast metro areas. But by Sunday afternoon, temps will bounce back into the upper 70s to near 80. Weather conditions on Sunday should be great, with a relatively stable air mass establishing across SoFlo as broad high pressure expands over the region.

Long Term (Monday through Friday Night) . East to southeast winds are expected Monday as the surface high pressure over the region begins to slide eastward out over the Atlantic in response to a deepening area of surface low pressure near the ArkLaTex. Dry air remaining in the wake of the front and mid-level ridging nosing over South Florida will keep conditions dry for Monday, although the return of easterly flow will kick off a gradual moisture return with some Atlantic showers possible starting Monday night.

Breezy southeasterly to southerly winds and increasing rain chances are expected on Tuesday as a cold front associated with the aforementioned surface low pushes southeastward into the state. Scattered to widespread showers and a few thunderstorms are expected on Tuesday afternoon, with the greatest chance around Palm Beach county and the Lake with deep southwesterly steering flow in place. Additional showers will be possible along the actual cold front when it finally pushes through the area Tuesday night into Wednesday morning, with breezy north to northeasterly flow expected across the area on Wednesday and Wednesday night. Cooler and drier conditions are expected in the wake of the front, with high temperatures on Wednesday forecast in the upper 60s west of the Lake to the upper 70s across far South Florida. Since this depends on the front clearing the area Wednesday morning, any slowing of the front could have significant impacts to the high temperature forecast on Wednesday. Low temperatures Wednesday night are forecast to be the coldest of the period and range from the mid 40s west of the Lake to the upper 50s right along the East Coast.

Northeasterly to easterly flow returns on Thursday as surface high pressure over the southeastern CONUS pushes eastward, kicking off another gradual moisture return over the area. Forecast gets quite interesting at the end of the period as strong trough digging across the southern Plains helps a surface low develop over the northwestern Gulf on Friday and then drags it quickly across the Gulf as the trough itself digs even further south over the western Gulf. As the surface low pressure system approaches the Florida West Coast, the mid-level trough is still digging southeastward over the eastern Gulf, and at the same time South Florida becomes positioned in the right rear quadrant of an upper-level jet streak, indicating the potential for strong lifting through the mid and upper levels as this front approaches. Right now it appears the limiting factor may be the available moisture, as it could be tough to get enough moisture return after the midweek front. However, this is the tail-end of the forecast period so we have plenty of time to keep an eye on how the trends are evolving over the next several days.

Marine . Small Craft Advisory conditions continue over the Palm Beach coastal waters today with seas remaining elevated in the Gulf Stream. Northerly winds are expected behind a frontal passage tonight with advisory levels possibly continuing over the Palm Beach waters. Hazardous boating conditions are expected to begin improving in the wake of the front. However, another stronger front will push through around middle of next week and may create hazardous marine conditions at that time.

Beach Forecast . A high risk of rip currents remains over the Atlantic beaches through at least this evening as lingering swell continues to affect the coast. Rough surf will also be possible for the Palm Beaches. There is also a moderate risk of Rip Currents for the Gulf coast beaches today. Rip currents should improve some on Sunday before elevating again early next week with breezy east flow.
