Update
The strong deep layer western atlantic ridge continues to dominate
the local weather pattern this evening. Surface to h850 center has
shifted a bit to the e-se over the past 24 hours, resulting in a
slight veering of winds locally to more of a southerly component.

This should keep any small shower chances confined to the immediate
treasure coast overnight. Otherwise, another mild to warm night is
on tap with mins a few degrees either side of 65f. Could see some
shallow mist over the northern western interior late tonight, and
like last night, near any recent smoldering burns, since prescribed
burn activity has been on the uptick this month.

Aviation MainlyVFR with spotty mifg br producing occasional MVFR
visibilities over the north interior aerodromes 09z-13z.

Marine A moderate to gentle se-sse breeze will continue on the
back side of the atlantic ridge overnight. Speeds averaging 10-13kt
with seas around 3ft near shore and 4-5ft well offshore.

Prev discussion issued 245 pm est Sat feb 24 2018
Sunday... The mid level ridge will continue across the SRN peninsula
with low level flow veering to southerly. Low level moisture depth
will be similar to Saturday though higher moisture levels will be
near the treasure coast and allow for isolated showers mainly across
areas from brevard and osceola county south to the treasure coast as
east coast sea breeze develops. Highs will range from 83 to 85
across the coastal counties and 84 to 87 across the interior.

Sun night-mon night... Initially, high pressure over the western atlc
with associated ridging lies across the central fl peninsula. A weak
boundary across the gulf coast states makes slow progress southward
into the central fl peninsula (potentially) late Mon night. This
east-west boundary will force the high pressure further into the
western atlc with associated ridge axis forced across the southern
fl peninsula. Aloft, mid-level ridging remains rather flat with axis
across the southern fl peninsula and extending westward into the the
gomex. While pwat values will be between a modest 1.20-1.40 inches,
any mid upper level support with the surface boundary remains
severely lacking. Cannot force myself to go higher (just yet) than
20pct during any period of this timeframe. Feel most areas will
either stay dry or just will not see much more than a sprinkle or
brief light shower. Temperatures remain well above climo.

Previous... Tue-fri... Ongoing migration of pattern to zonal aloft with
a weakening surface front moving across central fl on tue. Ascd
moisture looks marginal at best to produce no more than isold rain
chc due to lack of forcing mechanism. Temps wl remain at to above
normal to close out the month. Broad ridging is shown trying to re-
establish over the state from mid to late week with continued rather
dry and warm conditions to begin the month of march. A more
pronounced front may make it south into the area around Friday,
bringing cooler conditions for the weekend.

Aviation
Forecasting predominantlyVFR conditions across the area today. A few
light showers are possible across the northern terminals through this
evening. Any shower activity will end after sunset. Model guidance is
once again hinting at the possibility of patchy MVFR fog, so have
included tempo groups at kdab and the northern interior terminals.

Marine
Tonight... Se S winds overnight up to 10-15 knots expected around the
atlantic ridge with seas 3-4 ft near shore and 4-5 ft offshore.

Sunday... S winds around 10 knots will become SE near the coast in
the afternoon. Seas will subside a bit further, around 3 ft
nearshore to 3-4 ft offshore by late afternoon.

Sun night... Weak frontal boundary remains quasi-stationary across
the deep south north of the local coastal waters as surface ridging
remains in place (east-west oriented) across the central fl
peninsula. Serly winds will veer sswrly north of at least sebastian
inlet and S sse points further southward. Wind speeds AOB 15 kts.

Seas 3-4 ft near shore and 4-5 ft offshore (north of sebastian
inlet). Shower chances remain isolated.

Previous (modified)... Mon-thu... Weakness created by surface boundary
over N to central fl will bring lighter winds to the local marine
area early in the week with veering to S to SW component on Monday.

A modest wind shift to n-ne on tue, should the boundary make it this
far south, will veer direct onshore into midweek. Headlines are not
anticipated at least the first half of the week.

Climate Melbourne and vero beach still have a shot at breaking or
tying their record warm low for today, february 24th. An additional
warm minimum temperature record or two could be possible on Sunday,
february 25th, mainly for coastal sites.

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.
