National Weather Service Miami Florida
246 PM EDT sun Mar 29 2015

..tranquil weather with warming temperatures throughout the week...

high pressure will prevail across the area through the entire week.
The trough over the East Coast of the U.S. Will continue to pull out
with more of a zonal flow taking over across South Florida. This will
result in tranquil weather conditions prevailing. Winds will turn
out of the east tomorrow. Flow over the warm Gulf Stream current
will lead to warming temps, along with slowly risking heights.
Gradual warming along with slightly increasing humidity levels will
be the trend this week...with lows of around 70 returning to
Southeast Florida by week's end with highs into the 80s area
wide...and well into the 80s interior-west. A weakening front tries
to make it into South Florida middle week...but at this time it looks like
this remnant boundary/moisture will remain to our north. However,
slight moisture increase could allow for just a few showers to
affect mainly interior South Florida late week...but keeping a dry
forecast most locales for line with the model consensus.


winds will prevail at less than 15 knots through the period with seas
correspondingly low with no highlights needed. Gulf Stream seas of
4-5 feet tonight will lower with seas everywhere expected to be 3 feet
or less through the rest of the week given the weak pressure
gradient expected. /Gregoria
