DISCUSSION
Issued at 429 AM EDT Sun Apr 21 2024

Breezy with Near Record High Temperatures Today

Today-Tonight...Cold front moving into north Florida and ridge axis of high pressure south of central Florida, will produce a breezy W/SW flow across the area today, with gusts up to 25 to 30 mph possible. This will continue to produce much warmer than normal conditions, especially along the coast where the east coast sea breeze will either be pinned along the coast or remain just offshore. We will be on record watch today, mainly for coastal sites (Daytona Beach, Melbourne, Vero Beach and Fort Pierce) where max temps are forecast to tie or break their record max temps as highs rise into the low 90s. Across inland areas near to northwest of the I-4 corridor, highs are forecast to be a tad lower but still warm in the upper 80s. Mostly dry conditions expected today, but increasing moisture south of Orlando and late afternoon interactions with the stalled east coast sea breeze may produce a few showers and possibly a storm or two along the Treasure Coast, before this activity shifts offshore by sunset. However, rain chances remain low around 20 percent.

Rain chances increase into tonight up to 20-40 percent, as cold front approaches and begins to move into central Florida.
Scattered showers and isolated storms will be possible, mainly later into the evening and overnight along and ahead of this boundary. Cloud cover will also increase with the front overnight, with low temperatures still near to slightly above normal in the 60s.

Monday...A mid-level trough will sweep across the Florida peninsula on Monday, with its associated weak cold front forecast to move southward across the area. PWATs are forecast to increase up to 1.6" across east central Florida, with isolated to scattered showers possible out ahead of the front. A look at some of the CAM guidance (which is now extending out in time to include Monday) has yielded unimpressive shower coverage ahead of the front, so went ahead and limited PoPs to 50% across east central Florida.

Guidance continues to indicate some potential for isolated storm development ahead of the front, though confidence in this has decreased. Model guidance has less instability than before, with SBCAPE values generally in the 500 to 800 J/kg range, and almost exclusively restricted to the southern portions of the forecast area. Additionally, 500 mb temperatures have trended slightly warmer, with values in the -11 to -10C range ahead of the front.
Modest deep layer shear continues to be present in the models, with 0-6 km shear remaining around 50 knots. This means that if any storms are able to develop, they may be capable of producing frequent lightning strikes, gusty winds, and even hail. The area most likely to see storm development based on what the models are indicating include the Treasure Coast and Okeechobee counties. As a result, the Storm Prediction Center has trimmed the Marginal Risk (1/5) for severe weather to this area. There is a 5% chance for severe wind gusts up to 60 mph and a 5% chance for severe hail 1 inch in diameter. Overall, confidence in storm development remains low at this time.

Westerly winds are forecast to veer to out of the north-northwest behind the front at 10 to 15 mph. The weak cold front will bring slightly cooler temperatures across east central Florida, with afternoon highs in the low to upper 70s from Melbourne to Kissimmee and areas northward. Southward, highs are still forecast to climb into the low to mid 80s. Overnight lows will be slightly cooler, with temperatures in the mid 50s to low 60s across east central Florida.

Tuesday-Saturday...Behind the weak frontal boundary, an area of high pressure at the surface will settle across the Florida peninsula through the remainder of the forecast period. This will keep conditions mostly dry, with PoPs forecast to remain below 15 percent through early next weekend. The GFS continues to try and show some increasing moisture locally that could lead to isolated showers along the sea breeze, but have continued to lean on the drier side of things with this forecast package. North winds will veer, becoming onshore through the remainder of the forecast period. Wind speeds will increase to 10 to 15 mph each afternoon.
Skies will remain mostly clear, allowing for sufficient daytime heating. As a result, temperatures will gradually increase across east central Florida, with highs in the mid 70s to low 80s on Tuesday increasing to the low to upper 80s from Wednesday onward.
The coast will remain cooler than the interior thanks to the onshore flow. Overnight lows are also forecast to gradually increase, with lows in the mid 50s to mid 60s Tuesday and Wednesday night and increasing into the low to mid 60s through the remainder of the period.

AVIATION
(06Z TAFs)
Issued at 429 AM EDT Sun Apr 21 2024

Patchy fog possible, mainly near to northwest of I-4 through early this morning (through around 13Z). However, some higher cloud cover moving into this area may end up limiting any fog development.
Should any fog form, tempo IFR/MVFR conditions will occur.
Otherwise, VFR conditions are forecast to largely prevail today, as conditions remain mostly dry. A few showers, and potentially a storm or two could form toward the Treasure Coast and shift offshore this afternoon. However, better potential for showers and isolated storms will occur tonight as cold front begins to push southward into central FL. Predominant MVFR cigs will begin to move in from north to south across the area overnight, with some IFR cigs possible toward daybreak Monday.

W/SW winds will become breezy around 13-15 knots, with gusts up to 20-25 knots into this afternoon. The east coast sea breeze may be able to push onshore along the Treasure Coast in the afternoon, with winds becoming S/SE and also quite breezy. Winds then diminish into this evening out of the W/SW around 10 mph, becoming W/NW overnight as front begins to move into the area.

MARINE
Issued at 429 AM EDT Sun Apr 21 2024

Today-Tonight...S/SW winds up to 10-15 knots offshore this morning, will become southerly into this afternoon, increasing up to 15-20 knots over the Treasure Coast waters and offshore waters of Brevard County from late afternoon through this evening. Will include exercise caution headlines for the waters south of Sebastian Inlet for these developing poor boating conditions during the afternoon. Winds will then become W/NW overnight, around 10-15 knots as cold front begins to move into the waters. An isolated storm or two pushing offshore the Treasure Coast waters will be possible later this afternoon, with showers and isolated offshore moving storms possible into tonight along and ahead of the front.
Any storms will produce lightning strikes and gusty winds.

Monday-Thursday...An approaching weak cold front will lead to scattered showers and isolated storms across the local Atlantic waters on Monday. As the front moves southward across the waters, boating conditions are forecast to deteriorate. Westerly winds will veer to out of the north behind the front, increasing to 15 to 25 knots Monday night. In response, seas will increase to 4 to 6 feet across the nearshore waters and 5 to 8 feet across the offshore waters. A Small Craft Advisory will likely be needed for late Monday afternoon into Tuesday. Boating conditions are then forecast to improve late Tuesday as winds subside to around 10 knots out of the east and seas begin to gradually improve, falling to 2 to 4 feet through the remainder of the week. Dry conditions are forecast to persist across the local waters Tuesday through the remainder of the week.

FIRE WEATHER
Issued at 429 AM EDT Sun Apr 21 2024

Today...Near Red Flag conditions expected today, as warmer than normal temperatures and a drier airmass combine to produce min RH values in the upper 30s to low 40s over much of the area. It will also be breezy ahead of an approaching cold front, with W/SW winds increasing up to 15 to 20 mph, and gusts up to 25 to 30 mph. The east coast sea breeze will be pinned toward the coast or stay just offshore, with winds becoming S/SE and also becoming quite breezy where it is able to push onshore, mainly along the Treasure Coast.
So, very sensitive fire weather conditions will exist this afternoon.

Monday-Thursday...Rain chances are forecast to increase Monday ahead of an approaching weak cold front. Isolated storms will also be possible, especially across the Treasure Coast and Okeechobee counties Monday afternoon. Minimum RH values will increase into the 50 to 65 percent range across east central Florida, with west- southwest winds veering to out of the north-northwest behind the front at 10 to 15 mph. Behind the front, a dry air mass is forecast to settle across the Florida peninsula once again, with minimum RH values falling back into the 30 to 45 percent range across the interior west of I-95 through the remainder of the week. PoPs are forecast to remain below 15 percent. Northerly winds will become onshore after Tuesday, with wind speeds increasing each afternoon to 10 to 15 mph.

CLIMATE
Issued at 429 AM EDT Sun Apr 21 2024

Highs will be above to well above normal today, reaching the upper 80s to low 90s over much of the area. Coastal sites will have the best potential at tying/breaking their record highs today, where max temps are forecast to reach the low 90s.
