Otherwise, a good east coast sea breeze should establish late today , esp. toward the Cape and into mid-evening along the north side of the area of low pressure to the south. At the same time, a strong jet Streak of over 80 kts is forecast across South Central, placing Central in the right entrance and divergence aloft region which net results provides for rising motion. It appears that if parameters add up just right, some heavier storms could occur along the east coast toward or south of Vero Beach. This will only be dispelled as a precautionary measure at this conjecture since guidance is not pointing at rainfall in those areas at the time of this writing.
As of 10:15AM, the Hurricane Center was giving the storm at 20% chance of development within the next 24 hours, but surface forecasts and LDIS plots are showing tropical storm force winds already well east of the center. It should be noted though that these are from a pressure gradient due to the squeeze with high pressure to the east and not due to the depth of low pressure currently in place. In fact, for most of the life cycle of this system the storm force winds that are forecast with the low are to remain above ground level, with 'storm force gusts' in downdrafts from heavier rain and thunderstorm activity. Either way, would not at all surprise me if it is named Beryl if not over night tonight then by later Friday.
To note, there is much discussion regarding whether the system will be "named" tropically, although current implications are that either way makes not a difference, but implications are the storm could take on a very tropical presentation on radar and satellite imagery, although technically at best it appears it will be sub-tropical in nature due to continuous cold air entrainment (or filtering/drawing inward) aloft of cold air between 700-500 millibar heights (10-20,000 feet aloft). If so, it would not be a truly warm core low/system through the entire mid-levels of the atmosphere.
Latest GFS implies the surface low could be 'chasing' a cold pool aloft as it returns toward Florida on Saturday into Sunday. This makes future casts more difficult in regard to severe thunderstorm potential toward the east side of the state by Sunday/Monday afternoon given the latest agreed up track of the system. But, much more to be determined through the next 48 hours in regard to strength and track of the surface low, for IF the system is named, this will mean we will be hearing about "Beryl" or "Tedious Remnant Beryl" for at least a few days into early next week.
Perhaps the greatest impacts to Florida will be not as the low moves back into Florida (assuming it does) but AFTER it does so. Deep Cyclonic Flow around the system will drag deep moisture from the Caribbean northward on its East to SE flanks, with the low eventually ending up toward the Western Florida Panhandle and slowing down for a few days, before potentially being picked up by another low pressure trough approaching from the Central Plains.
EXTENDED: Under the assumptions of all of the above, we could be in for a repeat performance of a few weeks ago. Suggestions are that one way or the other regardless of what the system does, that this will be the case. That being, a deeper upper level trough situated along to east of the Mississippi River Valley Basin putting Florida in SW Florida aloft. This could me for some hot days ahead the last few days of May and the first week of June with storm chances in the cards each day.
