Discussion
Today and tonight... A high pressure was located over the southeast
u.S. Early this morning, stretching towards the northern gulf coast.

This high has allowed for northerly light winds and clear skies that
will continue today, with a slight shift in wind direction this
morning from the northeast to east as the high moves towards the mid-
atlantic states. This shift in direction will result in temperatures
around 10 degrees warmer today when compared to the highs yesterday.

But will still be below normal values for today. Later tonight,
winds over land will turn from nne to NE while marine winds will be
from the east. Consequently, temperatures won't be able to drop
below 50 across east central florida, with coastal areas near 60 and
the interior dropping to the low to mid 50s.

As a side note: thanks to the strong temperature inversion we are
experiencing in the low levels, our local doppler radar in
melbourne experienced what is called a super-refraction. This is
when the radar beam gets bent downward and it detects objects on
the ground at a distance. In tonights case, the beam was bent
towards the surface near downtown orlando, showing false high
reflectivity values that matched the i-4 interstate and clusters
of tall buildings.

Sun-mon... Sfc high pressure extending from the SE region to the
northeast seaboard early Sun will move out to sea. A weak coastal
trough is shown developing along the fl atlc coast during the
same time Sunday. Local winds will veer increasingly onshore with
some cloudiness and even some light pcpn ascd with the stationary
coastal trough over the NE fl waters by Sun aftn eve. Sct clouds
will be ushered ashore which will mitigate temperature recovery
somewhat especially along the coast. The airmass should remain
too dry however to support pcpn over land, and temperatures
starting in the 50s to l60s by Sunday Mon mornings will
correspondingly warm to the l80s sun-mon with u70s at the beaches.

Extended... Broadly cyclonic ua pattern over the eastern CONUS will
push a reinforcing front across the area on tue. The system is not
expected to bring much change in conditions other than some increased
cloudiness and a little cooler temperatures Tue and wed. More promising
sfc low pressure development hinted over the central gulf west of the
peninsula around Thu should increase likelihood of some local rain
around Fri and into early next weekend. Particulars remain uncertain
as far as timing and expected amounts of rain and any potential
for storms at this time.

Aviation Vfr conditions expected today with N to NE winds of 5-10
kts.

Marine
Winds will be turning today from the north to onshore as a high
pressure moves from the ohio valley and northern gulf to the mid-
atlantic u.S. Seas will be 3-5 feet today and tonight. Waters
especially near the gulf stream will experience choppy sea state
this morning before winds become more onshore around mid day.

Sun-mon... Boating conditions become more favorable with
lightening gradient winds. Expect seas around 3 ft near the coast
Sunday diminishing to 2 to 3 feet Monday and up to 4-5 ft well
offshore diminishing to 4 feet Monday.

Extended...

no headlines are anticipated through the holiday with seas around
2 to 3 ft near the immediate coast and up to 4 ft well offshore.

Winds and seas forecast to increase seas to at least 5 to 6 ft
late in the week as possible low pressure moves associated with
gulf wave develops and then moves out of the local area.

Fire weather High pressure north of the state will move
offshore the mid atlantic coast this weekend. Onshore winds
will develop at the coast this afternoon, eventually bringing
a marine influence to the area. A warming trend will begin
today through early week with no rain chances into midweek.
