AVIATION
(18Z TAFs)
Issued at 137 PM EDT Tue Jun 18 2024

Not the best day for flying. Easterly winds increasing to around 20 kts with gusts to 30 kts, remaining 15-20 kts with gusts 25-30 kts at the coastal terminals while inland terminals settle to 10-15 kts overnight, then picking back again in the morning and afternoon. Increasing moisture will support mainly VFR -SHRA at all terminals through the TAF period, but occasional MVFR impacts will be possible. Best chances for these reductions in the near term from KMLB-KVRB and maybe KFPR where relatively deeper bands of convection are moving onshore, but beyond that very low confidence in location.



UPDATE
Issued at 930 AM EDT Tue Jun 18 2024

Isolated, very shallow marine showers continue to push toward the coast this morning with a few coming ashore. The 10z XMR sounding, GOES-derived PW and water vapor imagery, and latest RAP analysis reveal an impressive dry layer above 800mb. CAMs and medium range guidance suggest that a push of moisture will arrive this afternoon, supporting slightly greater coverage of showers and even an isolated storm nearer to the coast. Similar to the previous forecast, thunder chances will be maximized over the adjacent Atlantic waters, though some lightning strikes could occur near and east of I-95. The QPF remains near or less than an inch along the coast with the highest amounts focused from around Cape Canaveral south to the Treasure Coast. Local amounts up to 1.5" cannot be discounted.

Based on morning temperature trends, highs today were nudged up by a degree, especially inland. Quick-hitting heavy downpours will briefly lower temperatures in any given location, though overall afternoon highs should push the mid/upper 80s to low 90s (inland).
