AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE MIAMI FL
330 PM EST THU DEC 18 2014

...DRY WEATHER WILL REMAIN OVER SOUTH FLORIDA THIS WEEKEND...

.SHORT TERM...
THE STATIONARY FRONT OVER SOUTH FLORIDA HAS DISSIPATED EARLY THIS
AFTERNOON. THIS WILL ALLOW FOR HIGH PRESSURE OVER THE FLORIDA
KEYS TO MOVE BACK NORTH INTO THE AREA TONIGHT INTO FRIDAY. THE
HIGH WILL THEN MOVE NORTHWARD INTO CENTRAL FLORIDA ON SATURDAY
BEFORE MOVING EAST INTO THE WESTERN ATLANTIC WATERS ON SUNDAY.
THIS WILL KEEP THE DRY WEATHER IN PLACE OVER SOUTH FLORIDA THIS
WEEKEND, AS THE WINDS BECOME MORE EASTERLY IN DIRECTION.
THEREFORE, TEMPERATURES WILL BE WARMING THROUGH THE WEEKEND WITH
HIGHS AROUND 80 AND LOWS IN THE 60S.

.LONG TERM...
A COLD FRONT OVER THE TENNESSEE VALLEY WILL MOVE SOUTHWARD THIS
WEEKEND AND STALL OVER NORTHERN FLORIDA EARLY NEXT WEEK. ALSO, LOW
PRESSURE WILL DEVELOP OVER THE NORTHERN GULF OF MEXICO. THE LOW
WILL MOVE EAST NORTHEAST ACROSS THE SOUTHEASTERN UNITED STATES AND
INTO THE MID ATLANTIC STATES AROUND CHRISTMAS TIME PUSHING THE
FRONT SOUTHWARD AS A COLD FRONT, AND THROUGH SOUTH FLORIDA
CHRISTMAS EVE DAY.

THIS WEATHER PATTERN WILL ALLOW FOR THE WIND FLOW OVER SOUTH
FLORIDA TO BECOME MORE SOUTHERLY EARLY NEXT WEEK, BRINGING IN
SOME MOISTURE TO THE AREA FROM THE SOUTH. THEREFORE, THE CHANCE
OF SHOWERS, ALONG WITH A SLIGHT CHANCE OF STORMS, WILL REMAIN IN
THE FORECAST FOR TUESDAY NIGHT INTO CHRISTMAS EVE DAY. THEN DRY
WEATHER RETURNS TO THE AREA FOR CHRISTMAS DAY INTO NEXT WEEKEND.

&&

.MARINE...
THE WINDS WILL BE MAINLY FROM THE EASTERLY DIRECTION THIS WEEKEND
WITH SPEEDS OF 10 MPH OR LESS ACROSS SOUTH FLORIDA WATERS.
THIS WILL KEEP THE SEAS IN BOTH THE ATLANTIC AND GULF WATERS TO
BE 2 FEET OR LESS.
