1045 pm edt Tue may 23 2017

Discussion
Additional beneficial rainfall with potentially strong to severe
storms on Wednesday...

scattered convection across north florida will push NE and should
stay north of the CWA most of the night. So most areas will remain
rain free but scattered showers and even a rumble of thunder will be
possible across lake volusia counties toward morning as wind fields
and moisture increase. The threat for severe storms is very low
overnight with this activity.

South to southwest winds will remain 10 mph or so overnight which
will produce mild lows 70-75f areawide.

Wed (previous)... Expect some ongoing convection early in the period
across the i-4 corridor. Expect this activity to be on a downward
trend early in the morning, but may spread further southward to some
degree. With deep layer moisture, impulses aloft, daytime heating
cannot rule out at anytime additional shower storm activity during
the day across ecfl. However, later in the day another batch of
convection will develop across the eastern gomex and spread onto the
west coast in the afternoon and may affect our western and northern
counties before sunset. Some afternoon storms could contain heavy
rainfall, frequent lightning, hail, and strong wind gusts. An
isolated tornado or two will also be possible. Strong to severe
storms cannot be ruled out. One to two inch rainfall can be expected
across much of the CWA with locally higher amounts possible through
this 24 hour period. A slow moving cool frontal boundary will extend
from north fl thru the gomex by the end of the day.

Forecasting high temperatures will be challenging, especially north,
where thicker clouds and earlier additional precipitation could keep
temperatures down lower than expected. For now, will go with lower
80s north of i-4 with m-u80s further southward. A few lower 90
degree readings will be possible, mainly south of kmlb if any
surface heating can occur in the afternoon.

Aviation
MainlyVFR with S SW winds around 10 knots overnight. Lamp guidance
is hinting at some stratus late tonight in warm southerly flow
across the northern terminals. There will also be scattered showers
and isold storms which should stay just north of dab lee through
sunrise.

On Wednesday, SW winds will again be breezy gusty. There will remain
a chance for shra tsra thru the day but a greater chance later in
the afternoon evening as a band of convection pushes across the
peninsula ahead of a cold front. Strong wind gusts 35 knots or
greater will be possible.

Marine
No significant changes to current coastal waters forecast.

Tonight... The pressure gradient will tighten with gusty S ssw winds
increasing to 15-20 kts over much of the area and cautionary
statements necessary for winds for all the marine legs overnight.

Seas will build to 3-4 ft near shore and 4-5 ft offs ridge.

Dry suppressed air mass will keep the forecast dry through Saturday.

As the ridge builds over the western atlantic with itshore. Isolated
to widely scattered thunderstorms will move northeast 20-25 knots
off the mainland this afternoon evening, especially from cape
canaveral northward.

Wednesday... As a late season cool front and associated strong upper
trough approach the area, shower and storm activity (offshore
moving) will increase. Heavy downpours, strong wind gusts, frequent
lightning, and small hail will all be possible. Cannot rule out an
isolated waterspout or two. Winds seas locally higher INVOF storms.

Rather poor small craft boating conditions will also be attributed
to gusty SW winds. While there may be a lull in the late morning-
early afternoon, wind speeds will ramp up again by late afternoon
and evening making for hazardous conditions. At some point, a small
craft advisory will become necessary. During the day seas will build
3-4 ft near shore and 4-5 ft offshore. Short period seas will make
for rough small craft boating, too.

Climate
Melbourne tied a record high of 95f this afternoon and vero beach
broke a record high of 95f. Melbourne will likely also tie its
record warm low for the day of 76f last set in 2007.

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.
