East Central Florida Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Melbourne FL 856 PM EST Mon Feb 17 2020

DISCUSSION. . Areas of Fog by Early Tuesday with Some Dense Fog .

Current/Overnight . North to Northeast winds along the NW Fl coast will advect some cooler swd north of the Cape and along I-4 into the overnight period. These conditions will also create more favorable conditions for development of fog and low clouds, and the expected coverage has been expanded along with the earlier timing of fog development across Volusia, Lake, Seminole and Orange counties. Present temp/dewpoint readings are already near saturation in Volusia Co. It is likely areas of locally dense fog will develop by around 3-4 AM near the I-4 corridor and Volusia county to Metro Orlando and persist through 8-9 AM.

Tonight . Short range guidance indicates a favorable set up for stratus and late night fog redevelopment across the northern and interior zones and have added to forecast grids for the overnight. Lows temps will be mild in the mid to upper 60s.

Tuesday . Morning fog and stratus is expected across northern sections during the early morning with low clouds and fog dissipating through the late morning hours with SSE/SE winds increasing in the boundary layer by mid day. Warmer temps are expected Tue afternoon to the mid 80s across the interior and lower 80s closer to the coast. Will maintain a low shower chance across far northern interior sections closer to deeper moisture across north FL and expected low level convergence with the east coast sea breeze moving inland during the afternoon.

AVIATION. Another round of LIFR stratus and IFR fog is expected mainly along and north of a KISM-KTIX line late tonight. Have included forecast groups for expected stratus fog development aft 06z. Conditions should improve to VFR into late morning with low level SSE boundary layer flow increasing into the afternoon.

MARINE. Tonight . Northeasterly winds 5-10 knots nrn waters and east to South east 10 knots across the south. Seas 3-4 ft in an east swell.

Tue . S/SE winds will increase to 10-15 knots with flow around the Atlc ridge. Seas will remain 3 ft near shore to 4 ft offshore.

CLIMATE. Above normal temps are expected into mid week with a few sites across the interior approaching records.

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.
