area forecast discussion
national weather service melbourne fl
827 pm edt Tue mar 28 2017

Discussion High pressure ridge across the area will slide
slowly southward into tonight. The proximity of the ridge will
again make for lighter winds across the area overnight. Radar and
observations show sea breeze collision about to occur from nw
osceola county northward through western orange and eastern lake
counties. Local WRF and hrrr indicate a few brief pop-up showers
from this collision, but overall rain chances look too low to
mention in the forecast. If a shower or two does develop it should
be very brief this evening. Lows tonight will range from the upper
50s to low 60s.

Lighter winds and clear/mostly clear skies will again produce the
potential for patchy shallow fog overnight. Main concern will be
if any smoke from lingering brush fires mixes with fog and leads
to locally reduced visibilities again on some highways late
tonight into early morning Wednesday.

Aviation MainlyVFR. Patchy fog producing mostly MVFR
visibilities will be possible again late tonight through daybreak
Wednesday. However, looks fairly limited so for now will not
include in the tafs. Locally reduced visibilities will again be
possible near any wildfires.

Marine
Tonight-wed... (previous discussion) continued good boating
conditions with light southwest-west winds due to weak high
pressure ridge settling to south florida. Lingering east swells
could produce rough conditions near inlets during the outgoing
tide.

Mlb watches/warnings/advisories
Fl... None.

Am... None.

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.
