.DISCUSSION...
CONVECTION THIS AFTERNOON NOW FOCUSING OVER THE INTERIOR AND THIS
TREND WILL CONTINUE UNTIL EVENING DISSIPATION. TSTORM OUTFLOW
BOUNDARY HAS MOVED EAST AND INTO THE EAST COAST METRO AREA. SO
CANNOT RULE OUT ADDITIONAL ISOLATED ACTIVITY FORMING ALONG IT THIS
EVENING.

HIGH PRESSURE WILL BUILD NORTH INTO SOUTH FL TONIGHT-WED.
HOWEVER, SOME CONVERGENCE AND A MOISTURE INCREASE ON THE NW
PERIPHERY WED MORNING INTO THE AFTERNOON WILL LEAD TO SCATTERED
SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS...FOCUSING IN THE MORNING EAST COAST
METRO AND TRANSITIONING INLAND DURING THE AFTERNOON.

ON THU...A MUCH DRIER AIRMASS/SAHARAN AIR LAYER (SAL) MOVES IN
FROM THE SOUTHEAST UNDERNEATH THE RIDGE AXIS. THIS WILL RESULT IN
SUPPRESSED CONVECTION ACROSS SOUTH FL...ESPECIALLY FOR THE EAST
COAST METRO IN THE SE FLOW REGIME THEN. A FEW STRONGER CELLS WILL
BE POSSIBLE THOUGH OVER THE INTERIOR GIVEN THE STEEPER LAPSE RATES
OF THE SAL.

LATE WEEK FEATURES A PREVAILING SURFACE SOUTHEASTERLY WIND FLOW
BECOMING MORE SOUTHERLY AS ANOTHER SHORTWAVE DIGS INTO THE
SOUTHEASTERN U.S.. MOISTURE LOOKS TO SLOWLY RECOVER WITH A TYPICAL
SOUTH FL REGIME OF AFTERNOON/EARLY EVENING ISOLATED TO SCATTERED
TSTORMS EXPECTED WITH FOCUS OVER THE INTERIOR. /GREGORIA
