Discussion
Broad low pressure over south florida will drift north, and then
northeast away from florida this weekend...

current... Rap surface and wpc analysis indicate the center of a
broad area of low pressure is south of lake okeechobee over inland
south fl. Most of the convection associated with this system is over
the bahamas, though nocturnal convection did fire up along the palm
beach coast and made its way north into martin and saint lucie
counties. Isolated light showers are moving onshore in brevard and
volusia counties. The latest two from NHC states significant
development of this system is not likely today, and any development
will occur once the system moves offshore and away from central
florida. Still, periods of heavy rainfall with minor flooding will
continue to be the main concern this weekend.

Today... Rounds of showers with embedded thunderstorms will continue
to come onshore of east central fl today as the tropical disturbance
meanders over south fl. Moisture is abundant, the 00z xmr sounding
had 2.10" of precipitable water (pwat), and model soundings suggest
pwats as high as 2.20" will be possible later today. The highest
rain chances (50-60 percent) will be from vero beach to okeechobee
southward. A gradual decrease in rain chances will be seen further
north, with 40-50 percent chance in osceola southern brevard county,
and only a 30 percent chance for areas along and north of i-4.

Interestingly, the higher resolution models all differ slightly in
their position of the surface circulation over the next 12-24 hours,
which is not surprising given the unorganized nature of this system.

This does add uncertainty into the forecast, particularly as it
relates to where when if heavy bands of rain set up or come onshore
today. The most likely area for this to occur will be along the
space and treasure coasts which reside on the ascending side of an
inverted trough that's set up along the east central fl coast.

Localized rainfall amounts of 1-3 inches will be possible with
higher amounts of 4-5 inches possible through this weekend -
depending on where if persistent band of heavy rain setup. Temps
today will will vary from low 90s across the northern areas where
there will be more abundant sunshine, to the upper 80s along the
treasure coast where morning rainfall and persistent cloudiness
should keep temps cooler.

Tonight... The surface circulation will continue to move slowly
north northeast across the fl peninsula, and should be somewhere in
the vicinity of the treasure coast by late tonight towards Sunday
morning (according to the latest guidance). The position of the
system will dictate exactly where the heaviest rain occurs. Do to
uncertainty will keep a broad area of showers and isolated storms in
the forecast for the coastal areas, and only a slight chance of
showers for the interior. Overnight lows will reside in the low to
mid 70s.

Sunday-Wednesday... Wherever the center of the tropical surface low
decides to (re)form consolidate over the next 24h, by Sun morning it
will be moving away from florida, tracking NE offshore the SE conus
seaboard, between the atlantic ridge to its SE and a pair of short
wave troughs to its nw-n. Behind the departing low, the atlantic mid
level ridge will rebuild westward into south florida thru mid week.

Weak surface trough axis will trail SW from the the low into ecfl
sun, while the slp pattern transitions to a broad col for mon-tue.

By wed, a weak mid level short wave trough digs across the eastern
conus, lowering heights across the SE CONUS and fl. An attendant
surface cool front will drop toward nofl, with the low level flow
becoming westerly across the peninsula. Sufficient mean moisture
will support scattered to numerous diurnal showers storms for the
next several afternoons, with pops averaging 60 pct (or ~10 pct
either side of it).

Weak steering flow the next several afternoons will portend some
locally heavy (1-3") rainfall totals, typical of late august, each
day. Wednesday looks to have a more pronounced w-wnw steering flow
of about 10-15kt, which would limit rainfall totals but may increase
the wind gust wet microburst potential. Temps look close to climo.

Thursday-Saturday... Residual mid level weakness over florida will
fill in as the broad trough to its north lights out, allowing the
atlantic ridge to rebuild west toward ecfl. Guidance suggests that
a broad low pressure area will form over offshore nofl Thu morning
from the frontal remnants, and then retrograde westward into the
gomex through next weekend. This may result in higher mid week pops
than what we are advertising (given it's in the day 6-7 time frame)
followed by slight drying next weekend. Of course, this assumes the
model guidance consensus out at days 6+ is close to being correct,
and as early september approaches, significant forecast changes
happen more often than not.

Aviation Periods of heavy rainfall will overspread the area today
as a tropical disturbance moves just east of the florida peninsula.

While there is a slight chance of thunderstorms this afternoon, vcts
was removed from the tafs due to low confidence of where if storms
will develop. Heavy showers are more likely along the coast where
tempo groups have been added for ifr ceiling and visibility impacts.

High resolution models show that convection will wane by sunset with
vfr conditions prevailing this evening into tonight.

Marine Today-tonight... Seas and winds are increasing today as a
tropical disturbance moves through the area. Early morning
observations from buoy 9, 13 and 14 show seas are around 3 feet
nearshore, and up to 4 feet offshore. East southeast winds today
will be around 10-15 knots. Bands of heavy rainfall and embedded
lightning storms will move over the waters today, and some of these
storms might produce occasional wind gusts to 35 knots and
waterspouts.

Sunday-Wednesday... Departing tropical low will leave a residual
surface trough laying across the local atlantic sun, which will
weaken through tue. Cyclonic (nw-sw) flow about the trough axis will
slacken, becoming light (mainly) offshore through tue, but giving
way to the onshore ecsb circ near the coast each afternoon. Stronger
westerlies are advertised for wed, which may increase the threat to
boaters of strong offshore-moving storms in the afternoon evening.

2-4ft seas on Sunday will drop back to 2-3ft from Sun night onward,
and will remain at or less than 3ft through the middle of next week.
