...New SHORT TERM, LONG TERM,

Marine
EACHES... .SHORT TERM... (Today through Tuesday) Issued at 209am EDT Monday April 22 2024

A weakening cold front will move into southern Florida today, allowing for an increasing chance of showers and thunderstorms. Moving aloft, there is general traces of the long-lived high pressure over the greater region but a couple of details are to be noted. The first is at the mid-levels where a shortwave trough could phase with peak heating today to help support some more stout convection. The second is a departing upper level jet which will slide south and east into the Atlantic by tonight. Temperatures today could be slightly cooler compared to previous days in areas with more cloud cover early in the day but will still be warm.

Combining the localized shear from the sea breeze, available surface- based instability thanks to diurnal heating, limited inhibition, and abundant moisture, there could be some isolated thunderstorms which become strong to locally severe. Strong to damaging winds, quarter-sized hail, and frequent to excessive lightning become the primary hazards of concern with strong to severe storms today. Tornado threat is non-zero as well, particularly where boundaries interact.

A mid-level trough will move across the southeastern United States tonight before exiting into the Atlantic waters off the Carolinas by early Tuesday. This feature will come into phase with the surface front and allow the associated low pressure to develop over the Atlantic waters as it moves away from the southeastern US coast. The frontal boundary should be well past southern Florida, somewhere between the Florida Straits and the Bahamas before the reinforcing of the parent low occurs. This will open the door for a surface high to build over the region with relatively drier and cooler air settling in.

Long Term
(Tuesday night through Sunday) Issued at 209am EDT Monday April 22 2024

High pressure holding as we move into mid-week with generally dry conditions across the region. A weak boundary attempts to move into the state on Thursday but dissipates quickly with surface high pressure off the Atlantic seaboard able to build back in to close out the week. The high will shift south closer to Florida by the weekend as the next low pressure and associated front pass to the north across the northern tier of the United States into the Atlantic off New England. Overall, the long term period should be dry save for Atlantic showers during easterly wind flow and the potential for sea breeze convection later in the week as moisture returns.

Marine
Issued at 209am EDT Monday April 22 2024

Chances of showers and thunderstorms will increase on Monday as a frontal boundary approaches and moves into the area. Behind the front, winds will build and become east northeasterly heading towards the middle of the week across all local waters. A developing northeasterly swell in the Atlantic behind the front could create hazardous marine conditions heading into the middle of the week.

Beaches
Issued at 209am EDT Monday April 22 2024

The rip current risk will increase across all of the Atlantic beaches heading towards the middle of the week as onshore flow develops along with an increasing northeasterly swell. Accordingly, a Rip Current Statement will be needed tonight into Wednesday for a high rip current risk along the Atlantic beaches.
