Marine Weather and Tides
Melbourne, FL

Version 3.4
What's New / NOTES
5/20/2018 -- NOAA is having problems with the data feed that I use to draw the graphs. They are aware of the issue and working to resolve it. Sometimes changing the location by about a mile will give a correct graph. 3/3/2018 - There is a new GOES Satellite for the east coast that required rewriting that part of the code. Please report any issues.

area forecast discussion
national weather service melbourne fl
801 pm edt Wed jul 18 2018

Update
Mid- and upper-level troughing and its attendant stationary front
over the southeast is keeping the subtropical ridge suppressed
well to our south. The resultant brisk southwest steering flow
led to an early start (and subsequently an early end) to
convection today, with few echoes remaining on kmlb radar as of
8pm. As noted in yesterday evening's discussion, this pattern
typically leads to a blossoming of overnight convection over the
northeast gulf. While this activity is expected to push onshore
the west coast, nocturnal stabilization closer to home should
keep most of our area dry. Still, can't rule out one of these
showers making it into lake county or far nothern volusia, so the
inherited <20% pop looks good there.

Aviation
Vfr overnight. Guidance indicates an earlier than usual start to
afternoon shra tsra again Thursday, so latest set of tafs
accounts for this. Deepest moisture looks to reside across our
central and northern areas, so tempo groups will likely be
needed for kism-ktix and points northward during the next
forecast package. Drier air should lead to lower coverage from
kmlb south; so will hold off on tempo groups for now.

Marine
Disturbed flow as a result of this afternoon's convection will
become south to southwest overnight, 5-10 knots near the coast,
10-13 knots offshore. Based on latest observations, undercut
latest wave model guidance by about a foot. Forecast calls for 1-2
feet nearshore, up to 3 feet well offshore.

Hydrology The saint johns river is either above action stage
or just above flood stage between geneva and astor. Little change
is expected through late week.

Near geneva, just south of lake harney, the most recent stage was
8.14 feet, which is above flood stage (8.0 feet). The river is
forecast to fall slightly but remain near flood stage into late
week. A river flood warning remains in effect for this area.

At sanford, the most recent stage was 5.08 feet, which is above
action stage (4.2 feet). The river is forecast to remain nearly
steady, staying below flood stage (5.5 feet) into late week.

Near deland, the most recent stage was 3.52 feet, which is right
around action stage (3.5 feet). The river is forecast to remain
nearly steady into late week.

At astor, the most recent stage was 2.29 feet, which is right around
flood stage (2.3 feet). The river is forecast to remain nearly
steady into late week. A river flood warning remains in effect for
this area.

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.
