Synopsis..A weak frontal boundary will settle into the central florida peninsula during the day resulting in southwesterly winds veering to westerly or northwesterly behind it. The frontal boundary is forecast to continue to push south across the waters this weekend, followed by a significant northeast wind surge. Seas will build rapidly from the wind surge as well as large incoming swells from distant hurricane teddy beginning overnight into Saturday. Seas are forecast to reach at least 15 feet well offshore by late Sunday. Hazardous conditions may exist at inlets during outgoing tide cycles through the weekend due to the developing northeast long period swell. Expect offshore moving showers and lightning storms this afternoon and evening, mainly from the cape southward. Winds and seas locally higher in vicinity of storms.
Gulf stream hazards..None.

Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Melbourne FL 955 AM EDT Fri Sep 18 2020

DISCUSSION.

Current-Tonight . Weak surface frontal trough north of I-4 this morning will be forced (slowly) further south into the central peninsula by late day, and then near the Lake Okeechobee region by sunrise Sat morning. Warmer temperatures aloft and poor support at the middle/upper levels will only provide scattered shower and isolated lightning storm chances during the day; generally south of I-4. Mainly a slight chance of showers northward and very little chance of thunder here as drier/more stable air infiltrate's the area from the north (post-frontal). USAF 915 MHZ wind profilers show a uniform WSW flow above the surface through near 10.0 Kft with wind speed average near 20 kts. The morning sounding was moist with a PWAT of 2.24 inches, though very warm aloft at 700/500 mb (+11.6C/- 4.3C), respectively. Primary storm threats remain locally heavy downpours, occasional lightning, and gusty winds up to around 35 mph. Storm motion out of the WSW or W at 10-15 mph. At the surface, we will realize SW/WSW wind flow ahead of the boundary and W/NW following passage. NW winds may approach 15 mph later this afternoon near KDAB. Winds tonight will veer to NW-NNE and will decrease to light.

Still warm temperatures areawide with U80s to L90s forecast. With the deeper southwest flow, don't expect any relief from the ECSB this afternoon near the coast. Overnight our mins will only fall back into the 70s once again. A few lingering light showers and perhaps a lightning storm will be possible during the evening after sunset, especially near KMLB southward, but most locations north of here should remain dry.

AVIATION. Some spotty low clouds around this morning and they should continue to diminish into late morning. A weak surface trough has pushed southward into north Lake/north Volusia counties this morning with slow progress forecast into the central peninsula by late today and to around Lake Okeechobee by sunrise Sat morning. Stable/drier air will filter southward behind this boundary. Very warm at the surface, moist, but little mid-upper level support for this boundary southward. A few showers north of KMCO possible, but scattered showers/storms more favorable southward today/evening. Cell movement toward the E or ENE at 10-15 kts. The ECSB does not look favorable given the stout/deep SWRLY flow. Winds expected to veer W/NW behind the front with most areas across ECFL becoming NW- NNE through the night. Will update TAFs with tempo as necessary for later convection, again, mainly south of KMCO. MVFR in/around SCT convection. Activity lingering longest along the Treasure Coast, where it is expected to end this evening, then push offshore.

MARINE. Today-Tonight . A weak frontal boundary across north- central FL will enter the northern waters (Volusia County) later this morning/early afternoon and continue into the central (Brevard County) waters later this afternoon and early evening. The boundary will continue slowly southward this evening/overnight into the southern (Treasure Coast) waters. ISOLD-WDLY SCT showers developing and pushing offshore the Volusia coast later today with SCT showers and lighting storms southward toward Jupiter Inlet thru at least sunset. Some lingering activity will persist across the Gulf Stream thru late tonight. SWRLY surface flow ahead of the boundary becoming W/NW behind it, then gradually NW/N behind it. Wind speeds 10-15 kts today falling to around 10 kts or less tonight outside of any storm activity. Seas 2-3 ft very near shore and 3-5 ft over the open Atlc. Winds/seas locally higher invof showers/storms.

HYDROLOGY. The Saint Johns River at Astor remains at Minor Flood Stage. While levels are forecast to remain relatively steady near Minor Flood Stage, any additional rainfall over the river basin may increase levels through the next several days. Astronomical high tides are also likely impeding water flow. Refer to Flood Statements from NWS Melbourne for the river levels and forecasts near Astor, which will be updated daily while the river remains in flood.

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.
