GMZ800 Synopsis For The Coastal Waters From Bonita Beach To Suwannee River- 246 Pm Edt Sun Aug 25 2019
Synopsis.. Through midweek, west to southwest flow setup will allow for a better chance of showers and storms early in the morning across the eastern gulf waters which will then move inland through the day. No headlines are expected at this time as winds and seas will remain below thresholds... By later in the work week into the weekend, a broad trough of low pressure in the gulf will increase rain chances across the eastern gulf waters.

Discussion
The invest area which has been loitering around the peninsula the
last few days will not pose a threat to west central and
southwest florida as it moves by the carolinas this evening. The
departing low will result in a pattern shift to southwest low-
level flow by tomorrow. Winds will gradually veer to the west and
then northwest by Thursday as building surface high pressure to
our south begins to erode and slide west in the central gulf. With
pw values staying a couple tenths on either side of 2 inches,
expect morning showers thunderstorms to migrate inland through the
day. The pop climatology for west and northwest 1000-700mb winds
will be countered by broad cyclonic flow and ample moisture,
allowing for rather sporadic rain chances each day. A tropical
upper tropospheric trough, aka tutt, is still expected to move
west around the southern periphery of an upper level ridge.

By Thursday into Friday, the subtle remnants of a disturbance
which is currently bringing heavy rainfall to the central gulf
states will traverse eastward off the georgia NE florida coast.

This low will retrograde back west across the peninsula into the
eastern gulf as a broad surface trough. Meanwhile, a tropical
upper tropospheric trough (tutt) will be moving westward across
cuba. While this upper level feature will be well to our south,
this may help to provide some support for enhancement of rainfall
across our area of the and bring an increase in pops as we head
into the weekend. Of course, all eyes will also be on tropical
storm dorian and what survives, if anything, as it exits the
northern caribbean. Please visit

In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
