AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE MIAMI FL
355 AM EDT MON MAR 30 2015

.DISCUSSION...
THE DISCUSSION THIS MORNING WILL BE SHORT AND TO THE POINT. A NEAR
ZONAL MID TO UPPER FLOW WILL DOMINATE THE SOUTH FLORIDA WEATHER THIS
WEEK WITH A SURFACE RIDGE ACROSS THE FLORIDA PENINSULA INTO THE
ATLANTIC. THIS WILL BE THE WEATHER PATTERN THROUGH THE WEEK AND INTO
NEXT WEEKEND. A SOUTHERN STREAM MID LEVEL TROUGH WILL EJECT FROM OFF
THE WEST COAST OF MEXICO AND ACROSS THE SOUTHEAST STATES LATE THIS
WEEK BUT BOTH THE GFS AND ECMWF SHOW LIMITED MOISTURE RETURN WITH
THE FEATURE AND THUS INDICATE MINIMAL POPS. THE ONLY CHANGE FORESEEN
AT ALL IS A NORTHERN STREAM TROUGH WILL MOVE ACROSS THE NORTHERN
STATES AND INTO THE NORTH ATLANTIC LATE IN THE PERIOD WITH ITS
TRAILING COLD FRONT MOVING INTO NORTH FLORIDA ON SATURDAY AND
POSSIBLY SOUTH FLORIDA ON SUNDAY. HOWEVER, THERE WILL BE VIRTUALLY
NO UPPER SUPPORT FOR THIS FRONT. SO EVEN IF IT DOES INDEED MAKE IT
TO OUR REGION THE FRONT WILL BE WEAK WITH LITTLE TEMPERATURE CHANGE
EXPECTED AND RAIN CHANCES WILL ALSO REMAIN VERY LOW.

&&

.MARINE...
AN EASTERLY WIND WILL CONTINUE THROUGH THE PERIOD AS HIGH
PRESSURE STRETCHES ACROSS THE FLORIDA PENINSULA AND MOVES LITTLE
THROUGH THE END OF THE WEEK.
