DISCUSSION
Issued at 315 AM EDT Tue Apr 23 2024

Today-Tonight...Surface high pressure is forecast to settle across the southeastern US today, with a dry air mass continuing to filter in across the Florida peninsula. As a result, no mentionable rain chances today through tonight with skies remaining mostly clear.
North-northeast winds early this morning will veer to out of the east-northeast this afternoon as the high pressure settles, with gusts up to 25 mph possible along the immediate coast this afternoon. These onshore winds combined with the slightly cooler air mass lingering across the peninsula will keep temperatures in the mid 70s to low 80s across east central Florida today, with overnight lows falling into the mid 50s tonight.

Despite the nice weather today, hazardous beach conditions will exist, with a High Risk of rip currents and rough surf present at all east central Florida beaches. Entering the surf is strongly discouraged.

Wednesday-Friday...Prevailing dry conditions expected through mid to late week, with temperatures warming through the period. A dry airmass with PW values around 0.5-1.0" will persist through much of the week, with skies mostly clear. Ridge axis of high pressure over the west Atlantic will remain across or just north of the area, allowing for a relatively light E/SE flow through at least Thursday, with speeds around 5-10 mph. Easterly winds then increase into Friday afternoon, up to 10-15 mph as this weak ridge begins to break down and a stronger area of high pressure centered off the Northeast U.S. coast takes over. Temperatures rise to near to above normal values through the remainder of the week, with highs on Wednesday in the upper 70s/low 80s at the coast to low to mid 80s inland, and then rising to the lows 80s along the coast to mid-upper 80s across the interior into late week. Lows will fall into the upper 50s/low 60s Wednesday night and then will generally remain in the 60s Thursday night and Friday night.

Saturday-Tuesday...Ridge aloft builds eastward over the area into the weekend, before gradually breaking down into early next week. At the surface, high pressure offshore of the northeast U.S. early Saturday will gradually build southward through the weekend and into early next week, with a breezy onshore flow developing into the weekend and then gradually decreasing Monday through Tuesday. Latest runs of the GFS/ECMWF still indicate some waves of slightly higher moisture that may lead to some isolated onshore moving showers in the east-southeasterly flow through the weekend into early next week, but still not a lot of great agreement on favored time periods for this activity. For now will continue to keep mentionable rain chances out of the forecast. Regardless, should any low end rain chances eventually be introduced, any rainfall will be light and sparse, so those wanting more substantial rainfall after the drier conditions as of late will still have some more waiting to do.
Temperatures will continue to remain near to above normal, with highs in the 80s and overnight lows in the 60s.

AVIATION
(06Z TAFs)
Issued at 315 AM EDT Tue Apr 23 2024

VFR conditions forecast through the period. Northeast winds 5 to 10 knots early this morning will veer onshore around 10 knots after 14Z, with gusts up to 20 knots possible at the coastal terminals this afternoon. Skies remaining mostly clear with no rain chances forecast. Winds diminishing to around 5 knots overnight.

MARINE
Issued at 315 AM EDT Tue Apr 23 2024

Today-Tonight...Poor to hazardous boating conditions will continue across all legs of the local Atlantic waters due to seas of 6 to 9 feet. North-northeast winds around 15 knots will veer to out of the east-northeast and diminish to around 10 knots this afternoon, leading to seas gradually subsiding late this afternoon into tonight. A Small Craft Advisory remains in effect across all local Atlantic waters through 10 AM, and will then be in effect for only the Gulf Stream waters through 4 PM. The Small Craft will then remain in effect for only the offshore Brevard waters and all legs of the Treasure Coast waters through 11 PM. Dry conditions are forecast across the local waters through tonight.

Wednesday-Saturday...Boating conditions become more favorable into mid to late week, with ridge axis of high pressure over the west Atlantic extended near to just north of the area. An E/SE wind flow will largely persist over the waters, with winds speeds around 5-10 knots Wednesday and Thursday, increasing to 10-15 knots Thursday night into Friday. Seas will range from 3-5 feet Wednesday and then continue to fall through the work week, to 2-4 feet Thursday and 2-3 feet on Friday.

Boating conditions then look to deteriorate into Saturday as stronger area of high pressure centered off the Northeast U.S. coast allows easterly winds to continue to increase up to 15-20 knots.
Seas will also build up to 3-5 feet.

FIRE WEATHER
Issued at 315 AM EDT Tue Apr 23 2024

Today...Sensitive fire weather conditions are forecast across east central Florida today as an area of high pressure settles across the peninsula. Minimum RH values are forecast to once again fall into the 35 to 45 percent range across the interior west of I-95, with the lowest RH values expected across Lake County, western Orange County, and western Osceola County. North-northeast winds will veer to out of the east-northeast at 10 to 15 mph, with gusts up to 25 mph possible along the immediate coast. Conditions are generally expected to remain just below critical fire weather thresholds.

Wednesday-Friday...Much drier airmass across the area through mid to late week will continue sensitive fire weather conditions across the area. Critically low RH values are forecast each afternoon, mainly over the interior, as easterly onshore flow will keep RH values elevated along the coast. Min RH values will drop as low as the upper 20s to mid 30s Wednesday and Thursday, and mid to upper 30s Friday. Wind speeds across the interior, where critically low RH values are expected, look to remain below 15 mph Wednesday and Thursday, but may approach around 15 mph on Friday afternoon as onshore flow increases.
