area forecast discussion
national weather service melbourne fl
325 pm edt Thu apr 25 2019

Discussion
Today-tonight... Dry, stable air mass draped across the area with
south-southeast flow. Sea breeze is nicely noted on visible
satellite imagery, breezy conditions along the coast making for nice
day as temps only reached the low 80s. Across the interior temps are
slightly below what was forecast, though still in the mid 80s.

Tonight will be mostly dry as well ahead of an approaching cold
front. Muggy conditions will persist as temps only drop into the mid
to upper 60s tonight.

Friday... A mid-level trough will swing across the deep south on
Friday and drag a cold front across the eastern gomex and fl
peninsula. Most of the energy and lift associated with the trough is
forecast to stay well north of east central florida. The high
resolution guidance available (hrrr, local wrf, href, 3km nam) show
the line of showers storms disintegrating as it reaches the i-4
corridor by late morning. With marginal low level moisture surface
dew points, modest forced ascent lapse rates, it's hard to see the
premise for strong, let alone severe thunderstorms across our area.

Chance of rainfall did not change much from the previous forecast,
thinking is 50 percent across the north, decreasing to 20-30 percent
for the treasure coast. Likely timing of showers with isolated
thunderstorms will be early morning across lake county, mid to late
morning for i-4 corridor, moving into brevard osceola by early
afternoon, then reaching treasure coast mid late afternoon.

Cloud cover should be in place across the north by sunrise, which
will limit the overall heating there. As such, MAX temps are
forecast to reach the low 80s from orlando titusville northward.

From melbourne south skies should be partly cloudy in the morning to
early afternoon. This combined with southwest flow will lead to hot
temps in the upper 80s with 90 degrees not out of the question.

Friday night... Mid upper level trough axis already pulling
north away from the florida peninsula early in the period with any
decent vorticity features eastward. Greatest deep layer moisture
to be located across the treasure coast, then focusing rapidly
south and eastward as drier air filters down the peninsula behind
weakening weather system. Have taken out pops aft 00z 8pm over
land and expect precip to be over the southern coastal waters
until around midnight. Lows remain mild behind the front and
mainly in the 60s. Surface high pressure builds into the deep
south late and we will have a northerly component of surface wind
overnight behind this weak front.

Saturday-next Thursday... Previous extended discussion... April
continues to live up to its rep, with a generally dry forecast on
tap through the end of the month. Zonal flow aloft in the
immediate wake of the departing trough will hold sway through the
upcoming weekend, followed by a building ridge from the early to
middle part of next week. At the surface, high pressure will build
across north florida this weekend, then shift east into the
atlantic, with the ridge axis set up north of florida through next
work week. With a generally dry and subsident suppressed air mass
aloft, the only premise for precip will be low topped showers in
a shallow low level moisture profile. The upcoming regime favors
isolated nocturnal showers moving onshore, mainly along the
treasure coast, and a few diurnal showers over the south and
central interior through early afternoon, along and ahead of the
atlantic sea breeze, whose quick push inland will be aided by
synoptic onshore flow.

Max temps will generally be in the l-m80s along the coast and u80s
inland. This is near to slightly above normal for our coastal climate
sites, and about one category above climo for the inland stations.

Mins in the l60s inland m60s along the coast this weekend will warm
to the u60s inland near 70f l70s along the coast next week.

Aviation
Tonight...VFR conditions will prevail, with mostly high level cirrus
clouds overhead.

Friday... A line of showers and storms will approach the northern
areas in the morning likely affecting terminals from ktix-kism
northward. Have introduced two to three hour tempo groups at these
terminals showing isolated thunderstorms capable of producing
reduced visibility and lower ceilings. Current high resolution
guidance is showing the line of showers storms disintegrating as it
approaching central fl in the morning, so confidence is low that
there will be significant impacts at area terminals. Southwest winds
will increase by late morning with sustained winds around 15 knots
and gusts to 20 knots or more.

Marine
Tonight... South to southeast winds will increase to 15 knots tonight
ahead of an approaching cold front, with seas 3-4 feet nearshore and
4-5 feet offshore. Small craft should exercise caution over the gulf
stream.

Friday... A moderate to fresh southwest breeze around 15-20 knots
ahead of the cold front will keep seas at around 4-5 feet well
offshore and over the gulf stream. Small craft should exercise
caution over the gulf stream through Friday evening. There will be
scattered showers Friday with isolated thunderstorms in the morning
north of the cape, and in the afternoon south of the cape.

Friday night-Monday... Departing low pressure system Fri night
with diminishing scattered showers isolated storms, mainly south
of the cape. Wsw wrly winds to veer nwrly behind the fast-moving
front, then N nne late in the night ahead of daybreak Sat morning.

Wind speeds may increase to 15-20 kts offshore during the
evening overnight, but diminish near daybreak Sat morning as the
pgrad relaxes once again with high pressure building into the area
from the north. Winds continue to veer to NE E thru the day sat
with wind speeds decreasing to around 10 kts or less. Sun-mon,
wind speeds will vary between SE E and speeds remaining AOB 15
kts. Seas may build to 3-4 ft near shore, 4-5 ft offshore, and up
to 6 ft well offshore late Fri night into very early Sat morning,
then fall below 4 ft areawide Sat overnight continuing AOB 3 ft
into early next week. For precip, we may see some low-topped
showers returning to the forecast early next week in the deepening
onshore flow.

Fire weather
Today-Friday... Dry conditions for today with rain in the forecast
tomorrow. Expect light southeast to south winds for the rest of
today with minimum rh values reaching the middle to upper 30s
over the interior. Friday will be a fire sensitive day as
southwest winds increase, becoming gusty with very high
dispersion values. Also, scattered showers and isolated lightning
storms will move across the area from late morning through late
afternoon.

Saturday-early next week... Prolonged dry conditions as of
late have pushed erc values higher, and this trend will continue
into next week. Winds remain below critical thresholds. Min rh
values have come in lower for both Sat sun, u20s to l-m30s into
the interior for Sat and l-m30s (interior) for sun. Otherwise,
freshening deepening onshore winds will gradually slowly increase
our low rh mins into next week.

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.
