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- 336 Pm Edt Tue Oct 22 2019
Synopsis..An area of high pressure will continue to dominate the weather pattern across the atlantic and gulf coastal waters today which will allow for a southeasterly flow to continue. A cold front will begin to approach the waters during the middle of the week which will increase the winds and waves during this time frame. There is the potential for small craft advisory conditions across the atlantic waters during the middle portion of the week. The chances of showers and Thunderstorms will also increase out ahead of the approaching cold front as well.
Gulf stream hazards..Increasing winds and waves ahead of a cold front approaching mid-week. The approximate location of the west wall of the gulf stream as of oct 19, 2019 at 1200 utc... 7 nautical miles southeast of fowey rocks. 10 nautical miles east southeast of port everglades. 11 nautical miles east northeast of lake worth. 5 nautical miles east northeast of jupiter inlet.

Aviation
GenerallyVFR conditions are expected through the period.

Increasing coverage of showers and thunderstorms is expected
tomorrow as a cold front approaches the area, with the greatest
coverage over the interior. Kept thunder out of the tafs for now
but can't rule out a thunderstorm or two in the vicinity of the
terminals during the afternoon.

Update
Previous forecast appears to be on track. A few showers remain
over the interior and lake region this evening but should continue
to diminish over the next couple of hours. An overall quiet night
is expected.

short term...

rest of today and tonight...

as a cold frontal boundary continues to progress eastward towards
the southeastern u.S. Today, modest low-level moisture combined
with daytime heating ahead of the boundary should allow for the
development of scattered convection later this afternoon, mainly
over the interior portions of the peninsula. A gulf sea breeze is
pushing inland this afternoon, while an atlantic sea breeze is
also becoming evident in the visible satellite imagery. Storms
should begin to initiate in the interior where heating has been
maximized and the aforementioned sea breeze boundaries interact.

From there, these storms should generally drift northeastward
towards the east coast metro of palm beach county and the lake
okeechobee region. Ridging aloft and subsidence over the peninsula
should keep most storms that form today as showers; however,
isolated thunderstorms can't be ruled out this afternoon,
especially over the interior and lake okeechobee region where lift
will be enhanced.

Long term...

Wednesday through Friday...

the aforementioned cold frontal boundary is forecast to approach
south florida by Wednesday and stall out over the southern portions
of the peninsula late this week. This will bring light northeasterly
surface winds on Wednesday becoming breezy from the east on Thursday
and Friday due to a tightening pressure gradient. Convection will
generally be diurnally driven on each of these days with a slight
enhancement in coverage due to the boundary in the vicinity. Rain
chances will be highest in the afternoon to evening hours over the
interior portions of south florida during these days, while
nocturnal westward moving showers over the atlantic waters will be
possible in this regime. Temperatures are forecast to remain near
average as this frontal boundary approaches south florida due to
the weak temperature gradient associated with the system.

This weekend into early next week...

while large discrepancies continue in the long-range global model
solutions regarding the evolution of the aforementioned frontal
boundary, the consensus is for a diffuse warm front to lift over
south florida and bring scattered showers and humid conditions
this weekend into early next week. After this boundary lifts out
of the vicinity of south florida, an additional frontal boundary
is forecast to progress towards the western gulf of mexico,
leading to an unsettled weather pattern of diurnally driven
convection that may be enhanced by the approaching front.

Marine...

an area of high pressure will continue to dominate the
weather pattern across the atlantic and gulf coastal waters this
afternoon which will allow for a southeasterly flow to continue.

A cold front will begin to approach the waters during the middle
of the week which will increase the winds and waves during this
time frame, and small craft advisory conditions are expected across
the atlantic waters during the middle portion of the week. The
chances of showers and thunderstorms will also increase out ahead
of the approaching cold front.
