area forecast discussion
national weather service melbourne fl
247 pm edt Sat mar 23 2019

Discussion
Tonight... A high pressure was centered over ohio this afternoon,
with another center developing off the south carolina coast. This
system will move eastward tonight, stretching towards fl and the
bahamas. As this secondary high pressure moves into the western
atlantic, winds across east central fl will turn from the northeast
to east. Thanks to this new onshore flow, moisture will slowly
increase but not enough to produce any rain, other than a very light
shower across the waters. Temperatures will drop to the low to mid
50s while the treasure coast will regulate near 60.

Sunday... High pressure will be exiting the carolinas in the morning
and continuing to move east during the day. Its western ridge will
be extending towards northern fl, shifting winds from east to
southeast. With this onshore flow, dew points will be able to
increase a bit but will still be considered dry with no possibility
of rain, other than a very light shower that could develop over the
atlantic waters. Temperatures on Sunday will once again start
feeling cool but will warm up rapidly during the day to near 80
across the interior and regulating to the upper 70s along the coast.

Sun night... Subtle mid-level troughing early in the period over the
area pushes quickly quietly eastward as zonal flow becomes
established once again. At the surface high pressure ridging just
north of ecfl settles southward to across the central peninsula by
sunrise Mon morning. Moisture return remains scant and the only
potential shower activity (20pct) will be across the coastal waters
north of sebastian inlet and away from the coast. The pressure
gradient will be very weak as ese winds quickly fall to light calm
after sunset. Overnight lows generally in the u50s over the interior
and volusia coast with l60s central brevard coast southward.

Mon-tue... Modified discussion... Zonal flow aloft Mon becomes
cyclonic tue-tue night as tail end of longwave trough crosses the
state during the day on tue. Low level ridge drops through and south
of region mon, allowing weak frontal boundary to slowly advance
across area tue. Isolated showers possible far south CWA Mon and
from near melbourne northward Tue as front drops southward. More
important feature will be post frontal NE wind surge which develops
between strong high entrenched from new england to the carolinas and
marine low which forms near bermuda. Breezy conditions may develop
along the volusia coast late Tue overnight, bringing scattered
showers onshore and inland, with isolated coastal showers farther
south. MAX temps in the l80s Mon tue, except upper 70s along the
immediate coast. Lows generally in the m-u50s interior volusia coast
and l60s along the coast south from the CAPE and adjacent barrier
islands.

Previous extended forecast discussion
wed-fri... Nw flow prevails aloft as trough along eastern seaboard
moves offshore and evolves into a deep cut-off cyclone near bermuda.

Moderate to strong NE flow between high pressure wedging down the us
east coast and stationary surface low near bermuda peaks Wed along
entire CWA coast, then slowly abates Thu and Fri while veering
easterly. Moisture trapped within tight gradient flow will bring
scattered showers to the eastern half of CWA wed, lingering
overnight across the coastal counties. Isolated coastal showers
still possible Thu fri, but coverage becoming more sparse. NE wind
shift combined with weak cold advection will drop MAX temps about 10
degrees from Tue maxs, ranging from upper 60s along volusia coast to
lower to mid 70s elsewhere. Slow temp moderate will begin thu,
reaching back toward climo fri. Mins through the period generally
mid to upper 50s, except near 60 to the lower 60s along the coast
south of the cape.

Ne wind surge and associated high seas may create high surf and
beach erosion issues along the beaches Wed thu.

Aviation
Vfr conditions expected through Sunday, as winds turn from northeast
to east tonight and southeast on Sunday.

Marine
Tonight-sun... Winds will be turning from northeast to east tonight
and becoming southeast on Sunday 10 to 15 knots. Seas of 3 to 4 feet
will prevail tonight, increasing to 4 to 5 feet across the offshore
waters on Sunday.

Sun night-mon night... Surface ridge axis to the north settles across
the local waters by daybreak Mon morning, then continues further
southward into Mon night. Ese SE initial winds will range from sse-
se during the day on Mon and SW W wnw through the night Mon as a
weak trough pushes across the area. Wind speeds over the open atlc
should stay AOB 15 kts. Initial 3-4 ft seas will subside to 2-3 ft
by daybreak Mon morning. An isolated shower chance through the
period.

Previous extended marine discussion modified
tue-tue night..Winds become NW 5-10 kt as weak front moves across
waters, then veers N and NE Tue night, increasing rapidly toward 20
kt across at least the volusia county waters by daybreak wed. Seas 2-
3 ft tue, building rapidly across waters north of the CAPE by
daybreak Wed to 5-7 ft. Isolated to widely scattered showers on tue
becoming scattered Tue night.

Wed-thu... Strong NE wind surge builds down the coastal waters by mid
day wed. NE winds (early) near 20 kt north of sebastian inlet and 15-
20 knots farther south will continue to increase southward during
the day. Winds will only very slow decrease during the day on thu.

Seas respond quickly to long fetch length of strong NE surge,
reaching 6-10 ft (or more) across waters north of sebastian inlet by
mid day Wed and farther south into the afternoon. Seas remain very
hazardous into thu. Scattered rain chances on Wed becoming isolated
on thu.

Fire weather
As an area of high pressure moves from south carolina towards the
western atlantic tonight, local winds will shift from northeast to
east tonight and Sunday. Min rh will improve on Sunday thanks to the
moisture influx from the east, but will still be dry with values
dropping to near 40 percent on Sunday and Monday. Dispersion will be
generally good on Sunday.

Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
