New UPDATE, AVIATION, MARINE

UPDATE
Issued at 859 PM EDT Mon Apr 15 2024

Ridge axis of high pressure over the west Atlantic will remain extended across Florida, with light E/SE winds tonight. Hi-res guidance continues to hint at the potential for some patchy fog development near to west of I-95, but MOS guidance keeps it out.
This may be due to a slight increase in low level winds toward daybreak off the surface that may provide enough mixing to limit fog formation. Still, will keep patchy fog mentioned, mainly across the interior for late tonight into early Tuesday morning.
We have also started to see a slight increase in wildfire activity in some spots today, so settling of smoke near any lingering or smoldering brush fires will also be a concern due to lighter surface winds. Dry conditions will prevail, with skies clear to mostly clear tonight. Lows will be near to slightly cooler than normal, ranging from the mid 50s to low 60s.

AVIATION
(00Z TAFs)
Issued at 859 PM EDT Mon Apr 15 2024

Mostly VFR tonight into tomorrow. There may be some patchy fog that develops late tonight through early Tuesday morning, mainly across the interior between 9-13Z. However, there is not a lot of agreement in the guidance for this to occur, and have therefore kept it out of the TAFs for now. If any fog does develop tempo IFR/MVFR visibilities will be possible. Light winds tonight will increase out of the east up to 10-14 knots tomorrow, with higher gusts along the coast. Skies will be clear to mostly clear tonight, with some increasing scattered to broken cirrus at or above 25kft into Tuesday.

MARINE
Issued at 859 PM EDT Mon Apr 15 2024

Tonight...Favorable boating conditions over the coastal waters, with E/SE winds around 5-10 knots. Seas 2-3 feet.

Previous Discussion...

Tonight-Tuesday...Generally favorable boating conditions persist, with dry conditions, thanks to continuing high pressure over the local Atlantic waters. East to southeast flow through the period around 10-15kts. Seas 2-3ft.

Tuesday Night-Friday (Modified Previous Discussion)...Favorable boating conditions with the Atlc ridge axis lifting north to about 30N lat Tue, then shifting back southward over the local Atlc waters Wed and reaching south FL Thu-Fri. Winds becoming SE 10-15 knots lat Tue-Wed then S-SW 10 knots Thu-Fri, but turning onshore (SE) near the coast in an aftn sea breeze both days. Seas 3 ft Tue, building 4 ft well offshore Tue night-Wed night. Seas subside back 2-3 feet Thu- Fri as offshore flow develops. No rain/storms forecast.

PREVIOUS DISCUSSION
Issued at 334 PM EDT Mon Apr 15 2024

Tonight-Tuesday...High pressure prevails over the local area, as the ridge axis remains stretched from the western Atlantic towards the Florida peninsula. Dry conditions persist, under clear to mostly clear skies. Temperatures this afternoon fall into the mid to upper 50s west of I-95 overnight. Meanwhile, coastal areas remain in the lower 60s, due to light onshore wind. Some patchy fog will be possible over the interior late tonight into early Tuesday morning, mainly for Osceola County northward. Easterly winds will increase once again late Tuesday morning into the afternoon, as the sea breeze develops, becoming 10-15mph. The warming trend will continue, as highs reach the upper 80s inland and the lower to mid-80s elsewhere.

Tuesday Night-Sunday (Modified Previous Discussion)...Mid-level ridge builds across the GoMex and FL peninsula into Wed before being flattened by southern stream shortwave energy with zonal flow forecast to persist thereafter. In the low levels, the Atlc ridge axis lifts north near 30N Wed, then slips southward, reaching south FL Thu where it will remain into the weekend. Some mid level energy will cross the area Fri in the fast zonal flow aloft, but dearth of low level moisture argues against introducing any rain chances, which is backed by 12Z QPF guidance which remains nil till Sun. The low level ridge axis holds firm across south FL preventing any frontal passages and will promote a south to southwest flow turning onshore near the coast each aftn. Across the interior, max temps will warm into the upper 80s/near 90 Wed, and low 90s Thu-Sun with a few mid 90s possible. Daily afternoon sea breezes will keep coastal communities a little cooler in the low to mid 80s Wed warming to the mid to upper 80s Fri-Sun due to a more delayed sea breeze onset.
Have kept the forecast dry thru Sunday.

FIRE WEATHER
Issued at 334 PM EDT Mon Apr 15 2024

Tuesday...High pressure will remain in control, with a dry airmass in place and warming temperatures. Minimum RH values around 30-35 percent on Tuesday over the interior, with higher min RH values near the coast. Onshore winds 10-12mph during the afternoon, especially along the coast behind the sea breeze.
Dispersion values will be very good to excellent. No appreciable rain is forecast, further drying fuels.

Wednesday-Sunday...Atlantic high pressure extending across Florida will continue dry conditions but winds generally remain 10 mph or less. Ridge axis of the high lifts into North Florida through Wednesday, then settles back south across South Florida Thursday into the weekend. Min RHs 30-40 pct across the interior Wed expand to most areas west of I-95 Thursday through Sunday. Along the coastal corridor from I-95 east, min RHs 40-55 pct. Easterly winds at 10 mph Wednesday shift to the south Thursday, which back to the southeast and could pick up to 10-15 mph along the coast with the sea breeze in the afternoon with the sea breeze, becoming light and variable overnight.
