AMZ600: Synopsis for Jupiter Inlet to Ocean Reef FL out to 60 nm and for East Cape Sable to Bonita Beach FL out to 60 nm
950 AM EDT Sun Sep 22 2019

Fresh to strong ENE breezes will create hazardous conditions for small craft operators across all South Florida waters this weekend. Steep waves remain a concern in the Atlantic due to wind driven waves and the gradually subsiding long period swell. Small Craft Advisories continue for all South Florida waters through late Sunday night and small craft operators should exercise extreme caution, especially around jetties and inlets.

Gulf Stream Hazards: Seas of 8 to 12 feet are expected. The highest seas are expected off the Palm Beach County coast, but at least occasional seas in this height range are possible elsewhere in the Gulf Stream. Extreme caution is advised for mariners.
The approximate location of the west wall of the Gulf Stream as of Sep 21, 2019 at 1200 UTC...
- 7 nautical miles east northeast of Fowey Rocks.
- 14 nautical miles east of Port Everglades.
- 13 nautical miles east northeast of Lake Worth.
- 13 nautical miles east of Jupiter Inlet.

741am EDT Sunday September 22 2019

Today and Tonight... Surface to mid-level high pressure will center across the Southeast CONUS. With the low-level ridge axis located to our north expect the pressure gradient to remain sufficient for breezy conditions today, with winds gradually diminishing a bit tonight. The low- level moisture gradient is forecast to remain in place, with the best chance for showers located across far southern portions of the area including Miami-Dade County and the Atlantic waters. Showers will again be quick moving given the speed of the low-low level easterly flow. The onshore wind component should keep eastern areas slightly cooler yet again, however temperatures will remain seasonal for this time of year.

Tuesday through Saturday... Deep layer ridging dominates much of the region leading to generally quiet and dry conditions for South Florida. Rain chances may increase by late week into the weekend as low-level moisture advects in from the east. The dry conditions will allow overnight lows to cool slightly, with upper 60s to lower 70s possible across portions of the interior.

Marine Discussion
Fresh to strong ENE breezes will create hazardous conditions for small craft operators across all South Florida waters this weekend. Steep waves remain a concern in the Atlantic due to wind driven waves and the gradually subsiding long period swell. Small Craft Advisories continue for all South Florida waters through tonight, and small craft operators should exercise extreme caution, especially around jetties and inlets.

Beach Forecast
The high rip current risk continues for all Atlantic beaches through at least Monday evening. Surf-zone wave heigheights over 7 feet remain possible along the Palm Beach County coast. This may bring localized beach erosion along with the potential for breaking waves over jetties and piers. A High Surf Advisory remains in effect for the Palm Beach County Coast through this evening. Swimmers and beachgoers are urged to use extreme caution this weekend and follow the instructions of lifeguards and other public safety officials.
