.DISCUSSION...
Today through Monday... Scattered cumulus clouds are lingering along
the east coast and southern portion of Miami Dade county late this
afternoon while mostly clear conditions prevail towards the interior
and west. Drier air has made its way over South Fl diminishing any
potential for rain the remainder of today into tonight. A few light
showers could still be possible tomorrow afternoon mainly along the
east coast metro areas as winds gradually veer east to southeast with
low level moisture gradually returning into South Florida. High temps
will be near normal today and Sunday.

Weather pattern begins to change into next week as strong low
pressure system setting up over Baja CA gradually lifts northeast
into the Central and Southeast plains pulling abundant Gulf moisture
into the area late Monday into Tuesday. Humidity values increase
with precipitable water values up to 1.6 to 1.9 inches. The center
of the low will still be further west into the Gulf waters Monday
limiting significant precipitation over the western counties of S
Fl. The chances of rain will be increasing to more widespread showers
and possible storms early Tuesday as the low moves much closer into
the area. Front associated with this system will push through the
region by the later part of the week. This will be a more decent
cold front for South Florida with air behind this front to be of
Arctic origin. Temps will be a few degrees above normal through
mid week but begin to cool down Thursday night into Friday with
the frontal passage. Temperatures could lowered into the 40s over
the northern counties and low 50s to near 60s along the Atlantic
and Gulf coast with a northerly flow in place. Still a lot of time
to monitor trends as we`re still about a week away.

&&

.MARINE...
Northeast winds will gradually veer east and southeast into Sunday
and Monday remaining close to 15 to 20 knots. High pressure towards
the north will be shifting to the east over the Atlantic veering
winds through early part of the week. Another low pressure system
approaching the Gulf waters by next week will enhance showers and
possible thunderstorms late Monday into Tuesday increasing winds
and the potential for Small Craft Advisories. At this time the
winds will range between 15 to 20 knots which caution level
conditions are continuing to be present.

&&

.BEACH FORECAST...
Northeast wind around 15 to 20 knot will continue tonight leading
to continuation of a high risk of rip currents at the Atlantic
beaches from this morning through Sunday night, with elevated rip
current risk likely into Monday.
