High pressure continues to dominate the weather pattern across
South Florida today with VFR conditions expected throughout the
TAF period. Light and variable winds this morning will veer from
the ESE this afternoon and evening for east coast terminals before
returning back to variable overnight. For KAPF, light and variable
winds this morning will gain a westerly component as Gulf sea
breeze is expected to develop this afternoon, around 17-18Z.

Not a whole lot has changed from the previous forecast. Still
expecting the ongoing warming trend to continue until a cold
front passes through on Sunday morning. This front will bring the
next good chance for rain across the area along with a cool shot
of air in its wake. Monday will be the coldest day with morning
lows in the upper 30s to low 50s warming to the 60s during the
afternoon. After the front another gradual warming trend sets in
and lasts through around midweek when the next front approaches
the area. Models are still in some disagreement with the timing of
this second front, but we still have a week to keep an eye on
things. For now, expect an increase in rain chances along with
another shot of cooler air mid to late week next week.

Generally light ENE winds will gradually become SE over
the next couple of days before becoming S and strengthening on
Saturday ahead of the next cold front. Otherwise, low seas are
expected until Saturday Night into Sunday as the front pushes
through the area. Breezy NW winds across all waters are expected
in the wake of the front on Sunday. A Small Craft Advisory could
be required across both Gulf and Atlantic waters as early as
Saturday night.
