New AVIATION

AVIATION
(12Z TAFS)
Mainly VFR conditions are expected through the forecast period.
There continues to be a small chance for some showers and storms to impact the southwest Florida sites, but believe the overall chance is low, so removed any mention from the 12Z TAFs. Rain chances return for all sites starting tomorrow afternoon.


DISCUSSION
Issued at 359 AM EDT Fri Jun 21 2024

Tropical moisture, a tropical disturbance, and dry air. An easterly flow continues through the column as florida remains sandwiched between a ridge over the SE CONUS and a Central American Gyre in the NW Caribbean Sea. Sprawling tropical moisture is evident in water vapor satellite imagery over S FL and west into the Gulf of Mexico. Meanwhile, a disorganized low continues to propagate NW towards the FL/GA line. In between these features is a pocket of drier air and subsidence - the latter of which is a product of venting off the low. While a narrow region, this had a noticeable impact on our weather yesterday, and is expected to do so again today.

While the Nature Coast could see some storms today, the Tampa Bay area is unlikely to see hardly any. Warm and dry is the theme. SWFL, on the other end of this zone, could see a couple storms creep in today; but this is likely to be delayed with drier air still playing a role. Storms should also be more limited in depth and intensity as well.

The low off the FL Coast is expected to move inland later today or tonight. Once that happens, this feature will quickly dissipate and the Bermuda High can build back in. Over the weekend, storms should again become more seasonable in response, with scattered to numerous afternoon and evening thunderstorms. An ESE flow is forecast to remain in place, meaning that the highest coverage of storms is likely to settle along the I-75 corridor of the west coast late in the day.

Sunday looks to be a transition day as the Bermuda high repositions farther east, ushering in a SW flow that settles across the region on Monday and lasts through the remainder of the week.
Climatologically, southwest flow with forecasted PWATs around or exceeding 2 inches, which is what is currently forecasted, tends to be quite warm and muggy overnight and fairly soggy during the daytime hours. This is the current expectation for next week: a humid but common rainy season pattern.

MARINE
Issued at 359 AM EDT Fri Jun 21 2024

Winds and seas continue to subside as the gradient weakens across coastal waters. Only isolated to scattered storms are forecast today with some drier air in place. However, Saturday's forecast favors scattered to numerous thunderstorms late in the afternoon and evening that move offshore and impact nearshore coastal waters.
Sunday is a transition day with scattered to numerous storms continuing before southwest flow settles in for next week, leading to potentially widespread activity across coastal waters at nearly anytime. Winds are expected to be light outside of thunderstorms, with no significant wave heights forecasted through the middle of next week.

FIRE WEATHER
Issued at 359 AM EDT Fri Jun 21 2024

Today is the driest day of the forecast period. Scattered to numerous showers and thunderstorms are then expected for the next seven days as a typical rainy season pattern sets up.
