area forecast discussion
national weather service melbourne fl
936 pm edt Sat oct 21 2017

Update
It was rather quiet today as far rainfall with only isolated
showers producing trace amounts to only a few hundredths of an
inch of rainfall across the area. For the rest of tonight, drier
air mass will gradually erode as moisture is forecast to increase
from south to north in response to the lower-level winds turning
more southeasterly. Already beginning to see evidence of the
enhanced moisture with isolated showers developing across and just
offshore of martin county. Both the hrrr and local WRF show
isolated to scattered shower activity gradually spreading
northward across the treasure coast into brevard county through
the overnight. Inherited forecast in good shape with 40% pops
across southern martin county with 30% continuing through the
treasure coast, brevard, and coastal volusia counties. Low
temperatures will be in the low 70s inland and mid 70s with a few
upper 70s possible along the coast.

Aviation
MainlyVFR. Drier air will gradually moisten with showers
expected to gradually increase along the coast from south to
north during the overnight. Interior terminals should expect
shower activity and perhaps a thunderstorm by late morning early
afternoon on Sunday.

Marine
(previous discussion) poor to hazardous boating
conditions will continue tonight with east winds 15-20 knots and
seas up to 7 feet. Winds begin to veer out of the SE Sunday then
more southerly Monday as high pressure ridge pushes seaward and a
strong cold front approaches from the west. Pressure gradient will
support wind speeds 13-18kt with seas 4ft near shore and 5-6ft
well offshore. Some increase in sw-w winds to near 20kt north of
the CAPE Tuesday, however offshore component keeps seas no higher
than 4-5ft well offshore. Brief NW wind surge Tuesday night into
Wednesday will push seas up to around 7ft in the gulf stream,
before they subside by thu.

It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. 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.
