AMZ400 Synopsis For Altamaha Sound Ga To Flagler Beach Fl Out To 60 Nm- 145 Pm Edt Tue Jun 18 2024

Synopsis - Strong high pressure will remain anchored off coastal new england through Thursday maintaining small craft advisory level onshore winds and waves across the coastal waters. Meanwhile, a trough situated to the northeast of the bahamas will be steered westward towards the southeastern seaboard late this week, with weak low pressure possibly developing as this system traverses the gulf stream waters. Showers and Thunderstorms are expected to increase in coverage late this week and through the upcoming weekend across our local waters. High pressure will weaken late this week as it sinks slowly southward towards bermuda, with the axis of this surface ridge extending across our area during the upcoming weekend. Winds and seas will gradually diminish as prevailing winds shift to southeasterly on Saturday and then southerly by Sunday.

UPDATE
Issued at 944 AM EDT Tue Jun 18 2024

For the latest NE FL and SE GA Daily Key Messages please visit: https:// www.weather.gov/media/jax/briefings/nws-jax-briefing.pdf

Minor changes with this morning's update. Gusty easterly winds have begun to develop this morning along the Atlantic coast and will spread inland through the day. Peak gusts of 25-35 mph are expected with the potential for an isolated place along the coast to reach 40 mph later this afternoon into evening. This onshore flow will continue a high risk of rip currents, small craft advisory conditions and rough surf. Dry airmass and subsidence has settled over the region with the 12Z KJAX sounding measuring a PWAT of 1.05 in. Waves of weak and low-topped showers will move onshore through the day in the easterly flow and won't provide much in rainfall.

NEAR TERM
(Today and Tonight)
Issued at 121 AM EDT Tue Jun 18 2024

Deep layer onshore flow will continue a breezy Easterly winds through the near term period with scattered showers moving onshore at times through tonight with an isolated thunderstorm not out of the question. Max temps will remain at or slightly below normal with highs in the middle 80s at the Atlantic beaches, upper 80s along the I-95 corridor and into the lower 90s over far inland areas. Easterly winds will increase during the daytime hours to sustained at 15-25 mph with peak gusts into the 30-40 mph range, likely remaining just below Wind Advisory levels. The onshore flow will continue a high risk of rip currents and rough surf of 3-5 ft will develop but Coastal Flooding is not expected at this time.
Winds diminish over inland areas tonight with the Easterly flow will remain breezy along the Atlantic Coast with continued scattered showers pushing onshore into the Atlantic Coastal areas at least as far inland to the US 17 corridor and the St. Johns River Basin through the night. Lows temps will fall into the upper 60s/near 70 across inland SE GA and lower 70s across inland NE FL, with the onshore flow keeping the Atlantic Coastal areas warm and muggy in the middle to upper 70s.

SHORT TERM
(Wednesday through Thursday night)
Issued at 121 AM EDT Tue Jun 18 2024

Surface high pressure ridge will be centered to the northeast through Thursday. This pattern will continue the onshore flow. Weak waves will move west through the flow, leading to enhanced winds, especially at the coast. These weak waves will also be responsible for helping to generate showers, and possibly a few thunderstorms during the heating of the afternoons on Wednesday and Thursday.

On Thursday night, the high to the northeast will weaken and move further away to the northeast, as an inverted trough moves west toward the east coast of FL. Shower chances will continue into Thursday night, along with elevated and gusty winds.

Due to the onshore flow, high temperatures will be below normal, while lows run near to a little above.

LONG TERM
(Friday through Monday)
Issued at 121 AM EDT Tue Jun 18 2024

Weakening inverted trough will move west across area Friday through Friday night, as high builds further away to the northeast.

Surface high pressure will be centered to the east northeast Saturday through Monday. This pattern will result in a flow more from the south southeast. This is a more moist flow pattern.
Expecting greater than normal precipitation chances throughout this period.

After a near normal temperature day on Friday, the rest of this period will trend above.

AVIATION
(18Z TAFS)
Issued at 117 PM EDT Tue Jun 18 2024

Gusty easterly winds continue into this evening with sustained speeds of 15-20 kts and gusts 20-28 kts. Isolated weak showers will continue to shift onshore and pass near the TAF sites today, mainly SGJ. Winds will be slow to subside overnight at the coastal terminals and will generally remain sustained around 15 knots, while speeds at the inland terminals decrease to 5-10 knots after 06Z. MVFR stratocumulus may move across SGJ in the pre-dawn hours. Easterly winds quickly increase once again after 12Z with another round of showers moving onshore. Shower coverage will be isolated to scattered tomorrow.

MARINE
Issued at 121 AM EDT Tue Jun 18 2024

Small Craft Advisories will develop across the waters with Easterly winds around 20 knots and seas building to 6 to 8 feet and remaining this way through Thursday as the Easterly/Tropical wave pushes into the coastal waters Thursday Night or Early Friday, then winds will shift to the Southeast following the wave by this weekend with a decrease in wind speeds to 10-15 knots and slowly subsiding seas below headline levels.

Rip Currents: The strong onshore flow will continue a high risk of rip currents this week with surf/breakers of 3-5 ft today will build to 4-6 ft on Wednesday/Thursday. With the approach of the full moon later this week, water levels will start to run above normal but coastal flooding is not expected at this time in the onshore flow.
