Discussion
Current-tonight... Scattered showers and isolated storms from osceola
and brevard counties northward will continue to move eastward
quickly into this evening with gradual transition of the scattered
convection southward into late evening. Will continue isolated
shower chances through midnight ahead of the advancing low level
frontal boundary which will move through the forecast area overnight
but expect most shower activity to end by around midnight. Lows will
drop into the upper 60s to lower 70s.

Thu-fri (previous)... A weakening surface front near lake okeechobee
thu will be accompanied by considerable clouds over much of the area
with some drying over the peninsula north of the shallow feature.

Current guid suggests a mentionable rain chc along with a storm or
two wl exist over S central fl and the adjacent atlc waters invof
of the weakening boundary with low measurable amounts of rainfall
possible. Thu night and through Fri deeper moisture with pwat
nearing 2 inches will overspread the entire area due to increasing
mid level winds from the tropics as a developing sfc low lifts north
across the central gulf. Some spotty morning showers should increase
in coverage by afternoon, along with the chc of a storm or two
given an overall destabilizing airmass with plenty of moisture and
modest mid level shear.

Weekend (modified)... Low confidence period in the forecast ATTM due
to uncertainty ascd with advertised low pressure over the northern
gulf sat. The lifting feature looks to be accompanied by a leading
flank of active weather in the form of showers, locally heavy rain
and isolated storms across the peninsula during closest time of
approach on Sat and Sat night. Wl keep precip mention conservative
at this early stage until the timing and strength of feature becomes
more apparent. The feature currently has a 50 percent chance of
developing into a tropical low according to NHC through the next 5
days.

Extended (modified) ... Wl keep sct rain chcs in the forecast early
next week with continued uncertainty on any favored area for
measurable daily rains due to placement and evolution of sfc
features past the departing gulf low. A cold front is shown
approaching the region by late Tue into wed.

Aviation
Scattered showers will move eastward through the afternoon impacting
most terminals north of kmlb. As showers shift to the coast,
isolated lightning strikes may occur, mainly in the vicinity of kdab
and ktix. Activity will diminish after 00z with MVFR CIGS possible
near daybreak and lasting through tomorrow as front dips across the
area.

Marine
Tonight... The front will move across the waters overnight with SW w
winds to 15-20 knots offshore becoming NW N to 10-15 knots late
tonight. Scattered showers and isolated storms into late evening may
produce wind gusts up to 35-40 knots. Scec headlines will be
required for the offshore waters for winds.

Thu-fri... Northerly winds behind the front Thu morning will decrease
and gradually become NE into late Thu aftn. Seas mainly 2-3 ft near
shore to 3-4 ft offshore. By Friday... East winds will increase to 10-
15 knots with seas 3-4 ft.

Fri night-Sunday... Gulf low will move toward the southeast through
the weekend with SE winds increasing across the local waters Friday
night and gusty winds from the south sat-sat night. Winds may reach
scec to SCA levels offshore depending on the strength and track of
the this system with the GFS indicating a faster and deeper system.

For now leaned toward a blend of models for the wind forecast but
further adjustments may be needed. Mariners should stay tuned to the
latest NHC tropical weather outlook and future cwf forecasts
regarding expected marine conditions this weekend.
