Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Melbourne FL 240 AM EST Sun Jan 26 2020

DISCUSSION.

. High Risk for Numerous, Strong Rip Currents Today .

Current . clear and cool/dry early this morning with just some patches of thin CI streaming overhead. Current temps are in the 40s across all but a few spots, with the coldest readings (L40s) over the interior north and in a few rural sheltered spots farther south over the interior as well.

Today-tonight . A benign weather day is on tap with light winds and high clouds that will increase through this afternoon, then thicken and gradually lower tonight. The chance for any measurable precip, which has waned steadily the past 4 days and now looks to hold off until after 12Z Mon as any spits/sprinkles will be falling out of an AC or very high based SCU deck. Highs will reach the U60s most areas, a few degrees cooler along the Volusia coastline, and perhaps tickling 70F in Okeechobee/Saint Lucie/Martin Counties. Mins mainly in the U40s. Depending on how quickly the clouds thicken up, there could be a rapid post-sunset dropoff into the L-M40s before temps flatTen out and perhaps rise a couple degrees overnight.

Mon-Tue . Weak low pressure over the central GoM will continue this trend as it approaches the FL peninsula. Support aloft will also be poor and PWAT values will be low. Have held onto a 20pct chance or less for some precip, but have higher confidence that most areas will remain dry. Light northerly winds filter down the peninsula Mon overnight. On Tue, weak high pressure builds into the region. Models hint at some light precip across the south and will have to monitor if this trend continues, but for now have kept this day mainly dry across land. Surface winds behind the system become light onshore once again Tue afternoon/night. Highs generally in the U60s to L70s with lows mainly in the U40s to L50s along/north of I-4 and L-M50s southward.

Wed-Sat . Zonal to SWRLY flow aloft during this time with embedded shortwave energy accompanying this flow as this period promises to be a bit unsettled. Trouble with this period will be timing/placement/strength of upper/surface features. At the surface, another weak low pressure over the north-central GoM moves toward the FL peninsula on Wed and across ECFL Wed night. Moisture and instability remain marginal at best. We keep in the forecast a 20pct chance or less for showers. Thu is mainly dry but we do add a small threat Thu night with increasing moisture ahead of a potentially stronger developing/approaching Gulf system.

Medium range models differ greatly on how fast to bring this system across the peninsula with the GFS much faster at present. The 00Z GFS brings this system across ECFL Fri-Fri evening, whereas the 00Z ECMWF is slower driving the system across the area Fri overnight into Sat. We do have Chance (40-50pct) PoPs in currently for these days, but expect to refine this as well as bump PoPs up over a period or two with further consistency and if this system remains fairly strong. While we don't initiate thunder mention just yet there may eventually be a threat for a few strong/severe storms, so this system does bear watching. Highs and lows will average just a bit above normal during this period.

AVIATION. VFR. SCT-BKN250 today. High clouds (CS/AS/AC) with bases lowering from BKN-OVC200 down to BKN-OVC100-120.

MARINE. Today-tonight . Concern today continues to be surf conditions and rip currents, since wave heights will be entirely comprised of a continued long (12s) period swell of 4-6ft. Local rip current work sheet came in with quite high values due to the combination of moderate-large swells, and below normal MLLW values at low tide. This has prompted issuance of both a High Rip Current Risk and a Beach Hazards Statement through 7 PM. Otherwise, a Cautionary Statement will continue for the waters beyond 20nm.

Mon-Mon Night . Weak low pressure approaches the FL peninsula from the Gulf while continuing its weakening trend as it ventures across the southern peninsula late in the period. Winds promise to be variable and remain mainly under 10 kts as the pgrad remains weak, though a short bump up to 10-15 kts out of the north is forecast for late Mon night into early Tue morning. Seas 2-3 ft near shore and 3- 4 ft Gulf Stream in a persistent ENE swell.

Tue-Thu . Weak surface high pressure builds in by late Tue but is quickly tossed aside by another weak Gulf low that will push across the local waters Wed night. Generally a 20-30pct shower threat will exist during this period. Initial NW/N winds will veer a bit more NERLY and ERLY through the remainder of the period. Headlines are not anticipated. Seas generally 3-4 ft becoming AOB 3 ft on Wed-Wed night, then 3-4 ft, again, Thu-Thu night.

FIRE WEATHER. Afternoon min RH values will be quite low today, reaching the M-U20s from I-95westward and L30s closer to the coast. Wins from 20ft through the mixed transport layer will slacken, which will result in poor smoke dispersion the next two afternoons.

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.

In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
