Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Melbourne FL 925 PM EST Thu Dec 12 2019

UPDATE.

Minimal changes were made to the forecast this evening. Showers will continue over the next few hours, after rainfall records at Vero Beach, Fort Pierce and Melbourne were shattered earlier this afternoon. Coverage will begin to decrease from south to north after midnight, as the warm front lifts north through the area. Showers will continue offshore, but inland areas won't see rain chances increase again until late tomorrow morning. Overnight lows will only drop into the mid to upper 60s tonight, nearly 10-15 degrees above normal for mid December.

AVIATION. Stalled boundary across Lake Okeechobee will slowly begin to lift northward overnight as a warm front ahead of another approaching system from the northwest. Forecast thru TAF period continues to be messy, with IFR cigs and persistent SHRA impacting most terminals this evening. As the front lifts northward later this evening, the rain shield will begin to clear KSUA to KVRB first by 06-08Z, then northern areas after 08Z. Stout onshore flow of 10-15 kts will diminish and become southeasterly tonight, veering to the southwest early tomorrow. A weak low will push across the northern FL peninsula tomorrow, increasing rain chances as well as the potential for iso TSRA, although confidence is too low to include TS mention at this time.

MARINE.

Some changes were made to match the forecast with current trends. Seas are currently 9-12 ft and will diminish through the overnight, becoming 5-8 ft by sunrise. Winds remain gusty, with sustained winds 20-25 kts from the east. These will also start to trend downward, becoming east/southeast at 10-15 kts by early morning. A Small Craft Advisory is in effect for all coastal zones until 10 AM Friday. Hazardous boating conditions will continue through Friday afternoon for offshore zones.

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.
