Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Melbourne FL 339 PM EDT Wed Oct 28 2020

DISCUSSION.

. A Moderate Rip Current Threat Continues at Area Beaches . . Near Record Warmth Areawide for both Highs/Lows through Thursday . . Strong Cold Front Late this Weekend Will Usher in Deteriorating Conditions at the Coast and Adjacent Coastal Waters into early Next Week .

Rest of Today-Tonight . Mostly dry conditions today, with just some light sprinkles pushing NW across the Atlantic waters. Below mentionable PoPs (<15%) will continue through the overnight, thanks to drier air filtering in from the east and high pressure situated over the western Atlantic. SE winds today will veer S overnight, ahead of an approaching cool front.

Hot temperatures this afternoon, with forecast highs running up to 8 degrees above average. Some of the current record highs could be threatened, as well as record warm lows. Daytona Beach, Melbourne, and Leesburg are on track to set new records today, should their observed low temperatures from this morning hold. Vero Beach looks to tie the record warm low there. See the climate section for more details. If you will be working or engaging in any outdoor activity this afternoon, be sure to remain well- hydrated and take indoor rest breaks, preferably in an air conditioned room. Overnight lows in the mid 70s.

Thursday . Hurricane Zeta, making landfall along the Louisiana coast this afternoon, will race quickly NE along a cold front pushing through the Deep South ahead of a deep cutoff low. Meanwhile, the high pressure axis extending into south Florida from the western Atlantic will begin to retreat eastward. Locally, southerly winds in the morning veering S/SW by late afternoon ahead of the approaching cold front. Shower chances increasing into the afternoon, as higher moisture is drawn up into the area by southwesterly flow. PoPs around 20% areawide, with up to around 30% across the inland Treasure Coast to account for showers and isolated storms moving off of Lake Okeechobee. Thursday will be the hottest day of the week, with afternoon highs reaching the upper 80s to low 90s. Record highs will again be threatened, as will record warm lows. See the climate section for current records. Be sure to take precautions if spending time or working outside tomorrow afternoon.

Friday . By sunrise Friday, the cold front is forecast to be across, if not south of, the Treasure Coast. The dry air lags a bit behind, reaching southern Brevard and Osceola counties just after sunrise. Northwesterly winds will gradually bring that dry air farther south. Dry conditions north of Melbourne, but should have enough moisture remaining for isolated to scattered showers to develop in the afternoon, from Lake Okeechobee to the Treasure Coast. Unfortunately, these areas won't really "dry out", and a couple of storms will also be possible due to cooler temps aloft. Afternoon highs in the upper 70s to low 80s for most.

A bit cooler by Saturday morning, with lows in the low 60s inland, but locations along the coast, especially Brevard southward, likely to remain in the upper 60s to near 70 degrees as winds veer onshore.

Saturday-Sunday . Surface high pressure will encompass the eastern seaboard Saturday before another progressive trough forces the high out to sea on Sunday. Onshore flow pattern will set up with showers moving onshore from the Atlantic impacting mainly coastal areas during the morning hours, but some will reach inland during the afternoon. Coverage of showers likely confined to the Treasure Coast, then expanding areawide on Sunday. Rain chances hover around 20-25 percent this weekend.

Gradual warming trend with highs in the lower to mid 80s. Onshore flow will also moderate lows for Saturday night into the mid-upper 60s, except lower 70s at the coast.

Monday-Tuesday . Models in pretty good agreement on an upper-level trough pushing off the U.S. east coast early next week that will bring another cold front through the area. Breezy northeasterly winds will develop behind the front as strong high pressure builds in across the Central Plains on Monday and then the southeastern U.S. on Tuesday. Both models are showing cooler and much drier air moving into the region, and if these solutions hold up, we could see a couple of days of below normal temperatures. It is still early, however Tuesday morning lows are forecast to be the coolest of the season so far - dropping into the 50s inland and 60s along the coast.

AVIATION. Mostly dry conditions this afternoon, as high pressure remains over the western Atlantic. VFR conditions prevailing. Winds SE around 10-15kts decreasing after sunset. Then, winds veering S towards daybreak, as a cool front moves through the Deep South. Tomorrow, winds increasing again to around 10-15kts, with a slight chance of afternoon showers and thunderstorms. S winds becoming SW late Thursday afternoon, as the front approaches the local area.

MARINE. Rest of Today-Thursday . Isolated sprinkles moving NW across the local Atlantic waters this afternoon. Then, mostly dry conditions expected for the overnight hours. SE winds persisting at around 10-15kts overnight, veering more S towards daybreak, as high pressure retreats eastward into the Atlantic. Then, winds increasing Thursday afternoon, becoming 15-20kts well offshore, as a cool front approaches from the NW. Shower chances also increasing tomorrow, as deeper moisture funnels in from the SW, with isolated showers and storms possible in the afternoon. Winds veering further Thursday night, becoming SW, as the front moves even closer to the local area.

Friday . A cold front will push across the area late Thursday into Friday morning. This may bring a brief period of poor boating conditions, especially offshore, as winds look to be around 15 knots and seas up to 5-6 feet. Winds become northwest behind the front early Friday, then diminish to 10-15 knots in the afternoon. By Friday evening winds begin to veer northeast as the front moves well south of the local waters.

Saturday-Monday . High pressure becomes established across the eastern seaboard this weekend, causing the local winds to become NE/ENE. Seas will build gradually over the weekend as wave models show a northeasterly swell arriving over the waters. Seas over the nearshore waters will build from 3-4 feet Saturday to 4-6 feet by Sunday. For the offshore waters, seas will build from 4-5 feet Saturday to 5-6 feet (possibly 7 feet) by Sunday.

A second, dry cold front is forecast to move across the area on Monday, which will likely result in dangerous boating conditions as winds and seas increase significantly.

HYDROLOGY. The Saint Johns River at Astor is forecast to continue a slow decrease through late week while remaining in Minor Flood Stage. Elsewhere, the Saint Johns River near Lake Harney is forecast to remain in Action Stage, which is just below Flood Stage, through Friday. Refer to daily Flood Statements and River Statements from NWS Melbourne for the latest river levels and forecasts.
