Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Melbourne FL 445 AM EST Wed Jan 22 2020

DISCUSSION. . After Coldest Morning of the Season, Temperatures Gradually Warming Up for the Rest of the Week . . Very Hazardous Boating and Beach Conditions to Continue Today .

Today . A high pressure centered over the mid-Atlantic states will stretch along the eastern coast of the U.S. and into the northeast Gulf today. To our east, a low pressure area will keep building today, increasing the local pressure gradient. Windy conditions will remain across east central FL, especially along the coast and over the barrier islands, where a Wind Advisory is in effect, while the rest of the area is under a Lake Wind Advisory. As the day progresses, temperatures will bounce from frigid 30s to the 60s. As the low develops and shifts south towards the Bahamas, moisture will be brought to the area, increasing rain chances as the day progresses from east to west. We hope that the chilly temperatures will keep you from venturing into the ocean, as large breaking waves, rough surf and rip currents will make swimming conditions dangerous.

Tonight . Low pressure will keep moving east and away from the local area and the pressure gradient will start to relax overnight. Winds will veer from the northeast mixing in marine/moist area into east central FL, and low temperatures will only drop to the 50s in the interior and lower 60s along the Treasure Coast.

Thursday-Friday . Low pressure system off the east FL coast will continue to pull away from the US, positioning towards the central Atlantic by early Thursday. This shift will weaken the pressure gradient over the local area, allowing winds strong northeasterly winds to diminish significantly, veering onshore early in the period. This easterly shift will offer more of a marine influence, and thus including PoPs of 20-30% both Thursday and Friday. Glancing at forecast soundings, most of the moisture concentration will be in the lowest levels, resulting in only low- topped coastal showers which should generally remain east of the St Johns basin. A loss of the northerly wind component will allow temperatures to return to a near normal range, with highs Thu in the low 70s, climbing to the mid/upper 70s by Fri afternoon. Nighttime lows range from the low 50s across the north to low 60s at the southern coastline.

Friday Night-Tuesday . Another low develops over the Midwest late this week, sending the next cold front down the FL peninsula. Models running a bit slower than previously forecast, with front reaching the forecast area after sunset Friday night. Even so, available moisture looks to still be limited once the front reaches east central FL, so rain chances hover near 20% Fri night, and a rain free weekend in store. Late Friday, onshore winds shift south, quickly veering northwesterly by daybreak Saturday behind fropa. Pocket of dry air will creep in behind as well, with PW near 0.30" Sat/Sun. Northwesterly flow will allow for another round of CAA to enter the area, although will not be as significant as the current cold outbreak. Weekend highs ranging from the low 60s northward to low 70s to the south, with morning lows Sunday in the low to mid 40s, returning to seasonal values Monday in the upper 40s/low 50s. Early next week, models hint at another cold front passage, but only included low end shower chances at this time, with near to slightly below normal temps expected to finish out January.

AVIATION. VFR conditions expected today with windy conditions. North winds 15-20 kt with gusts possible to 25 kt over interior sites while coastal sites could see gusts of 25-30 kt through the afternoon. After sunset, winds should subside for the interior sites while remaining gusty along the coast and becoming northeast. Cloud bases of 030-040 also possible today and increasing in coverage as the day progresses from east to west.

MARINE. Today-tonight . Strong to near-gale north winds with gale force gusts will continue today across the central FL Atlantic coastal waters. Seas will also continue to build, reaching heights of 15 to 19 feet today along the gulf stream, while elsewhere could see wave heights up to 14 ft. The Gale Warning was extended for the offshore waters until 7 pm as gale-force gusts remain in the forecast. For the nearshore, a Small Craft Advisory will get in effect after 4 pm and expand offshore after 7pm. And even though winds are forecast to drop below 20 knots late tonight, seas will range 7 to 12 feet.

Thursday-Friday . As sfc low pulls toward the central Atlantic, a weakening pressure gradient will diminish winds over the local waters on Thursday. Northeast winds will veer onshore, becoming 10- 15 kts by Thu afternoon, then continue to veer southerly on Friday. While the wind forecast improves greatly, seas are much slower to respond, with 8-12 ft seas on Thu diminishing only to 6-9 ft on Friday. The Small Craft Advisory will likely be continued through later this week. Chance for low topped showers across the coastal waters.

Weekend . A weak cold front is expected to reach the local waters overnight Friday and into Saturday morning, which will veer southwest winds northwesterly, increasing speeds up to 15 kts. Seas will continue to slowly improve, initializing at 5-7 ft nearshore and up to 8-9 ft offshore on Saturday, becoming 4-6 ft by late Sunday.

Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data.

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