...Considerable High Cloudiness will Keep Temperatures Below Normal in Afternoon...

Currently...Advection southward of cooler drier air continues with an extensive overlying area of high cloudiness. This will make for a chilly day and limited temperature recovery. Looking at climate records, some spots across the north may approach cool maximum temperature records this aftn. (See below for details). Some minor adjustments are pending mainly for short term temps.

prev disc...

Today-Tonight...A mid level disturbance moves across east central Florida today as a 250mb jet streak moves offshore the southeast/mid Atlantic coast. Surface high pressure across the central CONUS moves southeastward today. Northwest to north surface flow will continue to advect a very dry airmass into east central Florida. Moist flow aloft will make for a gloomy, overcast day, however, the low level profile will be much too dry to support any precip. High temperatures will widely range the 60s this afternoon with areas across northern Lake, Volusia, Seminole only reaching the upper 50s.
The coldest air so far this season is forecast as skies clear from north to south overnight. The coldest temperatures will be felt across Lake and inland Volusia counties where values drop into the upper 30s to lower 40s. Mid 40s are forecast along the Volusia coast, stretching southwestward along the I-4 corridor and into Osceola county. Upper 40s to low 50s are forecast across Brevard, Okeechobee and the Treasure Coast counties. A north breeze around 10 mph could make temperatures feel colder, especially across northern Lake and northwest Volusia where wind chill values fall into the mid 30s.

Wed...The high pressure center over the SE U.S. will edge closer to the area weakening the pressure gradient a bit while maintaining a north breeze. After a chilly start, mostly sunny skies will allow temperatures to rebound into the low and mid 60s Orlando north and into the low 70s Okeechobee to Treasure coast.
Some scraps of marine stratocu should push onshore the coast south of the Cape as winds above the sfc begin to veer onshore.

Thu-Mon...The sfc high pressure is forecast to continue eastward and slide offshore the Carolina coast and over the western Atlantic Thu-Fri. Winds are forecast to veer East Thursday, and then Southeast Friday as we get into the return flow around the departing high. Gradual moistening will commence but remaining rain-free Thu and have lowered shower chances for Fri as upper ridging builds northward from Cuba and FL Straits. After one more chilly morning over the interior Thu in the low and mid 40s, a warming trend will begin. Max temps will reach the 70s areawide Thu and near 80/lower 80s Fri with mid 80s across the south building northward this weekend. With dewpoints increasing into the lower 70s, a temporary return to summer-like conditions is possible.

High pressure building over central Florida will focus the highest rain chances across northern FL this weekend, but there remain discrepancies in model output with ECM consistently showing the area solidly in the warm sector while the GFS shows a more southern trajectory for the upper disturbances riding around the upper high which keeps more cloudy/showery conds for EC FL.
Locations along and north of Orlando/Cape Canaveral will be best positioned to see some rain showers this weekend with 20-30 percent chances. Interestingly, both models show a weak frontal boundary pushing through the area Mon/Mon night which should bring a higher coverage of showers followed by a cool down.

Today-Tonight...Poor boating conditions today over Gulf Stream vicinity and offshore areas as a modest wind increase moves southward across the local waters, increasing to 15-20 kts offshore.
Seas of 5-6 ft across the Gulf Stream. Seas wl diminish to 4 ft in the Gulf Stream overnight. Have trimmed the caution statement to include the offshore waters from Flagler Beach to Sebastian Inlet and all of the Treasure Coast waters to account for Gulf Stream nearshore there.

Wed-Sat...High pressure center will push east across the deep South mid week then offshore the Carolina coast late week and weekend. As the sfc high approaches Wed, the north winds will decrease 10-12 knots then veer East on Thu as high pressure pushes seaward. As the old frontal boundary returns northward as a warm front on Fri, winds will veer Southeast and increase 10-15 knots.
On Sat, southerly flow around 10 knots with isolated to scattered showers. Seas 2-3 ft nearshore and 4 ft offshore Wed, subsiding below 4 feet Thu. Seas build Fri 4-5 feet offshore in a wind chop then subsiding below 5 feet Sat.

Issued at 344 AM EST Tue Nov 28 2023

A cool dry period with a north wind flow will continue through midweek. RH values will fall 35 to 45 percent over the interior today while holding above 50 percent along the coast from the Cape south. A small increase in min RH values is forecast for Wednesday. A warming trend will commence Thursday as wind flow veers onshore with above normal temperatures Friday into the weekend with a more southerly flow.

Here is a listing of today's coolest maximum temperature records.
The cloud cover may help some locations near these records for high temps.
