Discussion
Current-tonight... The wc ec sea breezes are moving steadily inland
this afternoon. Convection across the treasure coast and okeechobee
county expected to increase in coverage intensity northward and
further into the interior through the afternoon and early evening
where additional boundary collisions will occur. Storm threats
remain frequent cloud to ground lightning, gusty winds, torrential
downpours leading to nuisance minor flooding thanks in part to weak
steering flow, and perhaps some small hail possible as well. The
storm threat will diminish thru the evening over the interior. Schc
shra tsra overnight over the coastal waters with schc for showers
along the treasure coast. Will opt for pre-first period wording in
afternoon zfp.

Overnight lows generally in the l-m70s and u70s for some coastal
sites. Cloud debris to thin thru the night. Winds will become
light variable to calm.

Previous extended forecast discussion...

weekend... No notable change in position and strength of bermuda
ridge over the peninsula this weekend will keep a forecast of
coastal and inland pop separation with higher pcpn chcs inland due
to mid-late afternoon boundary collisions, with se-s component
steering level winds. Pop chcs about 25 to 30 percent coastal zones
and 35 to 45 percent inland. Expect highs in the l-m 90s with heat
indices 101-105 inland from the immediate coastline, and overnight
lows in the m70s.

Next week... A more promising chc for areawide rains will develop by
tue as weakening of local ridge is indicated due to a notable trough
moving into the across the SE states. This wl act to displace the
bermuda ridge south of the forecast area into the latter part of
next week. Higher rain chcs begin to develop by Tue and persist
through midweek, and this looks to improve the dry conditions,
especially along the immediate coast, where many places have not had
measurable rainfall in a week.

Aviation A few storms will linger near the coastal terminals
through around 20z before transitioning inland. As the east and
west coast sea breezes continue to move inland showers and storms
will increase in coverage with main impacts for interior terminals
in the 19z to 00z 01z time frame. Convection will gradually wind
down from sunset onward with most if not all precipitation over by
02z this evening.VFR overnight into Saturday morning, but there
could be some showers near fpr and sua by the mid morning hours.

Marine Afternoon-tonight... Weak pressure gradient continues over
the local coastal waters. General onshore flow near the coast and
s SE further over the open atlc. A degree of variability in wind
direction this evening with winds near the coast gradually becoming
offshore again and a southerly component over the gulf stream. Wind
speeds 6-12 kts or even lighter at times for some. Schc remains for
showers and lightning storms, especially over the gulf stream. Seas
1-2 ft.

Previous extended marine forecast discussion...

weekend... Favorable winds and seas with dominant surface ridge over
the marine area. Winds largely 6-12 kts, or less with seas 1-2 ft.

Extended... Early next week shows continuation of favorable open
water conditions with s-se winds becoming more southerly, and then
developing some offshore component by wed. Seas averaging 2-3 ft,
with 1-2 ft near the coast tue-wed.
