New SHORT TERM, LONG TERM, MARINE, FIRE WEATHER

.SHORT TERM (TDY-SAT)...
Issued at 220 PM EDT Fri Apr 19 2024

A fairly warm and rain free couple of days as high pressure remains over the Peninsula. Very dry airmass should also be in place with humidity values getting dangerously low over the interior. In terms of winds, both tonight and Saturday should be light and variable becoming onshore behind the afternoon sea breeze. Temperatures climb up into the low 90s in most areas, except for the immediate coast during this time.

.LONG TERM (SUN-THU)...
Issued at 220 PM EDT Fri Apr 19 2024

During the long term, an upper level disturbance currently impacting the southwestern dessert should approach the Southeast by early next week and out of the area late on Monday. At this time, model guidance keeps most of the U/L support north of the CWA If this materializes, the highest rain chances should lay along the I-4 corridor and north. Nonetheless, areas south could experiences a shower or two.

Behind the aforementioned disturbance, a weak high pressure builds through the rest of the period. This should also push cooler temperatures into the state mainly in the morning. However, they will not last long. Afternoon highs warm back up to the 90s during the second half of the week.

AVIATION
(18Z TAFS)
Issued at 1243 PM EDT Fri Apr 19 2024

Prevailing VFR conditions are anticipated through the period across terminals. West to northwesterly winds become light and variable overnight, which along with clear skies should support low clouds and fog developing close to sunrise. Clouds are expected to gradually dissipate once the sun is out and the sea breeze brings onshore winds in the afternoon.

MARINE
Issued at 220 PM EDT Fri Apr 19 2024

Area of high pressure should keep light winds and seas through the weekend with an onshore flow developing each afternoon along the coast. The next cold front will move across the waters on Monday with a chance of showers and thunderstorms, with the best chance across the northern waters. High pressure will build back over the region in the wake of the front on Tuesday.

FIRE WEATHER
Issued at 130 PM EDT Fri Apr 19 2024

High pressure remains in control across fore districts with light and variable winds early, and westerly in the afternoon through Saturday.
The main concern will be the potential for low clouds and fog tonight and into Saturday morning. Most of it should be ground fog and should dissipate after sunrise. Minimum humidities are expected to be near or at critical levels during this time, especially over interior locations. However, the lack of wind should keep any warnings from being needed. Then, a disturbance increases rain chances into early next week. Followed by cooler and drier conditions later in the period as high pressure returns to the area.
