Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Miami FL 811 PM EDT Sat Apr 4 2020

Update. The showers that developed over the interior region of South Florida, from the collision of the sea breezes, should continue to dissipate through rest of the evening as the heating of the day is lost. The weather will then remain dry rest of tonight over South Florida as high pressure remains over the Western Atlantic waters. There could be some patchy fog late tonight over the interior areas due to the higher moisture with the ongoing showers and the light winds overnight. Therefore, a slight chance of showers have been added for portions of the interior areas this evening along with patchy fog wording for the late night hours.

Rest of the forecast looks good at this time and no other changes are planned.

Aviation. The winds will remain light tonight over the TAF sites before going easterly on Sunday at most TAF sites. The only exception is at KAPF taf site where the winds will become westerly in the afternoon. The weather will remain dry tonight into Sunday morning before VCSH for the east coast TAF sites for Sunday afternoon. The ceiling and vis should also remain in VFR conditions tonight into Sunday, but could fall into MVFR conditions Sunday afternoon with the passage of showers.

Discussion .

Short Term (Rest of Today through Sunday):

A disturbance pushing across the Gulf of Mexico is spurring convection on satellite imagery this afternoon. Light surface synoptic flow this afternoon will allow a sea breeze to develop and push inland which could spark some isolated showers over the interior portions of South Florida. Overnight, any convection should diminish with light, variable winds.

The pattern begins to shift for Sunday with the approaching disturbance. At the mid-levels, a shortwave trough is forecast to be just off the Gulf coast of Florida around midday. At the lower levels, a jet is evident at the 700 mb level that could act to enhance the chances of convection. Moisture advection and instability will be sufficient to support convection, though some additional cloud cover on Sunday could cause temperatures to be cooler than previously forecast. Most of the area should be able to reach the lower 80s on Sunday with the big factor of mid to upper 80s vs. upper 70s being the timing and location of convective activity.

If a sea breeze were to develop, it would act as a feature which could focus convection. The Atlantic sea breeze might be able to advance inland of the western suburbs and setup as an initiating boundary in the afternoon and evening hours. This opens the door to some heavy rainfall potential from any thunderstorms that could develop. Repeated rainfall from training cells could cause an issue for some of the east coast metro if it were to materialize. Model trends for QPF are rising as the guidance begins to pick up on these factors. One mitigating factor is that most of the area is in drought and that most of the rain tomorrow should be beneficial as long as too much does not fall in the same place repeatedly.

Another threat with thunderstorms is lightning. Lightning hazards are two-prong for Sunday:

1. Lightning could be dangerous for any outdoor operations or activities if thunderstorms were to develop close to those locations. 2. Dry fuels could be ignited by lightning strikes producing a concern for wildfires.

This kind of northwest flow pattern brings a lower level of predictability. The forecast has evolved and may continue to change heading into tomorrow. Everything from rain chances to temperatures is highly dependent on the progression of the disturbance through the Gulf (particularly timing and development) and across the peninsula.

Long Term (Monday through Friday):

Models show fair agreement in depicting broad ridging across the SE CONUS, while a decaying stationary frontal boundary lingers over the central Caribbean and across the Gulf to start the work week.

The ridge gradually slides southward through mid week, settling around the eastern Caribbean. Thus, it will dominate the weather pattern over the FL peninsula and Soflo through much of the long term with generally benign weather prevailing each day. Easterly winds will be in place on Monday, then veering southward and southwest by Wednesday with the migrating ridge.

The ridge axis should be around SoFlo on Monday, bringing increased subsidence and periods of weak to moderate flow. This will will allow for sea breezes to develop in the afternoon hours, which may become focal points for localized showers to develop. Low-end scattered coverage remains in the forecast for Monday afternoon, and will keep thunder out of the forecast since there is not enough support for it attm. As the ridge keeps sliding further south, enhanced subsidence will further preclude convection, with POPS dropping to mostly single digits for the rest of the long term.

With more cloud cover Monday afternoon, max temps should remain in the upper 70s to mid 80s. Then a warming trend establishes with clearer skies in place, and highs reaching the upper 80s to low/mid 90s.

Long range models continue to show little consensus for the end of the forecast period into the weekend as a frontal boundary over the SE CONUS tries to push into the state late Fri into Sat. For now will keep following inherited forecast philosophy and keep this feature further north of the area.

Marine . Northeasterly swell increases waves for the Atlantic waters starting early Sunday morning. A Small Craft Advisory could be needed as early as Sunday morning, particularly for the Gulf Stream. Waves remain elevated for a few days before subsiding around midweek.

Beach Forecast . The elevated threat of rip currents will continue along the Atlantic beaches of South Florida this weekend due to the northeast swells from the Atlantic waters. Therefore, the high risk of rip currents will continue for the beaches of Palm Beach County through the weekend with a moderate risk of rip currents rest of the Atlantic beaches.

Aviation . Light wind flow with onshore components due to sea breezes today. Some showers may develop inland of the terminals this afternoon. Rain chances will increase on Sunday as a disturbance moves across the region late Sunday into Monday. Some thunderstorms cannot be ruled out near the end of the forecast period but kept mention to PROB30 SHRA in this issuance.
